Tyson Fury will look to successfully defend his heavyweight title against Dillian Whyte this weekend.
This weekend’s heavyweight showdown is set to take place at Wembley Stadium in front of 94,000.
Even though he won’t be in attendance, Oleksandr Usyk will be keeping a close eye on the fight.
Oleksandr Usyk to ‘Study’ Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte
“Definitely yes [we will be watching the fight],” Alexander Krassyuk, Usyk’s promoter, told Sky Sports.
“Egis Klimas [Usyk’s manager] and myself plan to attend the event and watch it from ringside.
“At Usyk’s training camp, he will watch and study the fight on TV.”
There have been rumours that ‘The Gypsy King’ will retire after this weekend’s clash with Whyte.
However, Fury is solely focusing on this weekend’s main event with ‘The Body Snatcher.’
“To be honest with you I am only thinking about Dillian Whyte, I am not thinking about retirement,” he said. “That will come after the fight, we will think about what will happen and what the future will hold for me.
“At the minute, I have a massive task in Dillian. A lot of people are underestimating Dillian Whyte but not me. I am giving him the respect he deserves throughout the training camp.
“I am not underestimating this guy, I give him the respect like I did for Deontay Wilder and everyone else.”
Over the last few years, the British faithful have been begging for Tyson Fury to fight Anthony Joshua.
However, since AJ’s defeat to Usyk last summer, it would appear that those plans have gone out the window.
Instead, both Joshua and Usyk will go head to head once again. It’s likely that the event will take place in July in Saudi Arabia.
Whether this weekend will be Fury’s last fight, one thing is for sure, Tyson will be aiming to put on a show for the fans.
