Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk finally collide in their historic undisputed heavyweight title clash next week.

For the first time since Lennox Lewis’ victory over Evander Holyfield 25 years ago, boxing’s blue riband division is set to have one sole world champion once  again.

WBO, WBA and IBF champion Usyk, defends his world titles for the third time having already dismissed two British heavyweights in Anthony Joshua and Daniel Dubois.

Fury arrives with the WBC belt in possession, the final piece of the puzzle for Usyk with ‘The Gypsy King’ looking to take back the three titles he initially took from Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

The biggest fight in heavyweight boxing spectacularly fell through last year before Saudi Arabia’s intervention revived it. Fury’s bruising night at the office against Francis Ngannou last October shelved things and a cut suffered in training ensured a date in February was delayed again.

But history now awaits for both men.
