Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are FINALLY set to face one another in the ring after a boxing bout was confirmed for 2024 - and it has fans across the world ready and raring to see a huge heavyweight event.

Fury's narrow win over Francis Ngannou was met with sceptic looks from fans, pundits and fellow fighters alike as he squeezed past the former MMA fighter on a split decision win as an onlooking Usyk watched in the crowd. With Fury's reputation as an undisputed winner in years gone by, his reputation did take a slight tumble after being more than matched by the Cameroonian, though he is still the bookies favourite to beat Usyk.

It's not long now until the fight takes place in Saudi Arabia - and with Usyk also having never lost in his 21 fights as a professional boxer, it's sure to be a superb spectacle. Manchester Evening News takes a look at the details about dates, undercards and more.

What has been said by Tyson Fury ahead of the fight?

The pair had to be separated in their press conference in London on Thursday afternoon as they came to blows - and Fury couldn't stop himself in his typical fashion as he fired insults at the Ukrainian in front of the cameras.

The Gypsy King said whilst interrupting a speech from Usyk's promoter Alexander Krassyuk: "You're welcome to be sharing a ring with the future undisputed heavyweight champion - me. You are all dossers, he's getting knocked out, and you two [Krassyuk and Klimas] are going to be working for me carrying my bags, so remember I said that on this stage.

"I already relieved one Ukrainian [Klitschko] of all the belts and I'll relieve that idiot of all the belts I gave him, including that Ring Magazine I only vacated last year so I could win it back three times, sausage.

"You know what's coming, you're getting smashed to pieces. You're fighting the best British heavyweight there's ever been. You beat all the rest of them, but you ain't beating Tyson Fury, [you] sausage."

“No, I am a man, I don’t work like that," Usyk said on the Fury vs Ngannou fight. "Tyson Fury is closer to me than Ngannou. Ngannou is a nice guy and I respect him. I just can’t use dirty tricks. I have children and my sons watch me, many people watch and follow me.

“One cannot behave like a pig and remain a human being at the same time. If you behave like a pig, you are a pig.

"I want to tell one story which looks very similar to our story with Tyson, about David and Goliath. When the Lord gives me Tyson in my hands, I will make my job. The Lord has nothing impossible."
