Fury vs Usyk: Will Usyk lose the undisputed title, and when is the rematch?

Oleksandr Usyk rewrote history books by beating Tyson Fury to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion of the world in 25 years.

The Ukrainian won the 12-round fight by a split decision despite having cornered Fury into a near knockout in the ninth round as the who’s who of boxing, including the last undisputed champion Lennox Lewis, watched on at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

Will Fury and Usyk have a rematch?

Immediately after the fight, Fury asked Usyk for a rematch and the champion did not decline the challenge.

“I have a rematch clause and I want it because I won that fight,” Fury said whilst still in the ring.

“We’ll go and rest up and fight again in October.”

Promoter Frank Warren also confirmed that the rematch is on.
