The state of boxing’s heavyweight division: Fight Disciples look into a potential Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk fight

While every other division in boxing seems to be on the same page, the heavyweight division has decided to separate itself from the rest of the pack. An example is Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou.

Is there more to this fight than just the boxing vs. MMA attraction? Business deals during fight week could result in the long-awaited undisputed heavyweight title fight between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk. However, with various mandatory challengers ready to call their shot, will it be a while until boxing fans see that bout? 

Fight Disciples hosts Adam Catterall and Nick Peet break down the dream fight, potentially in February 2024, and how the massive purse from Saudi Arabia played a factor in Fury vs. Ngannou taking priority over Fury fighting those actually in his division.

They also discuss the recent reports regarding a potentially WBC-mandated Anthony Joshua-Deontay Wilder clash.
