Fury And Usyk's Grand Arrivals Analyzed

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk made their grand arrivals during fight week. 

The Undisputed Heavyweight Championship fight is almost here, with the winner becoming the best of their era on May 18. Both men are undefeated and looking to follow in the footsteps of Lennox Lewis. Lewis was the last man to have become undisputed, beating Evander Holyfield in the rematch in 1999.

Lewis has picked Tyson to come out victorious, but it is a fight that could go either way. Both fighters faced major adversity in their last fights. Fury got off the canvas to beat Francis Ngannou via a controversial split decision. Usyk also got off the canvas to stop Daniel Dubois. He was knocked down, only for the body shot to be ruled a low blow. Both men were focused on the task at hand as they made their grand arrivals. 


“It feels absolutely fantastic to be in the great Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I’m feeling fantastic. I can’t wait to put a good show on. There’s so many people coming. It’s such an event. All the big stars are here. It’s going to be epic. I can’t wait for Saturday night.”

“If I was fighting an old dosser on Saturday night who had five fights and lost them all, it would be very important to me. Every fight I’ve ever had is important to me. Every little fight along the way was important to me. I believe that every left and right turn I’ve ever taken in my life, every time I’ve fallen over, and every time I’ve climbed up was all leading to this moment. It’s destiny.

“I predict that somebody’s ‘0‘ has got to go. And it’s going to be that team over there, unfortunately for them. Oleksandr Usyk is a great fighter. Olympic gold medalist, cruiserweight world champion, heavyweight world champion. But, unfortunately for him, he has to come against the great Tyson Fury in the era of me. I’m really looking forward to Saturday night.”

“Even if he had 20 million people screaming his name, they cannot fight for him on the night. And when there’s two men in there on the night, it’s going to be very daunting when he has the undertaker in the ring with him,” Fury

Usyk’s Comments

“I feel good. I’m very happy to be here. Saturday is a special day because I will have the opportunity to become undisputed for a second time. It’s great. It’s very good for me. It’s very important for my country. I like that. I have a plan. It’s a better plan. And it’s a great plan. I really appreciate the support from my fans and Ukrainian soldiers. I love my fans,” Usyk
