Usyk vs Fury 2 has been confirmed

The rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury has been confirmed for December 21.

The bout will once again take place in Saudi Arabia, after Usyk was crowned undisputed heavyweight champion of the world earlier this month in Riyadh.

Earlier this month the first fight between Fury and Usyk took place and despite a strong performance from Fury in the middle rounds of the fight, the Gypsy King was rocked by Usyk in the ninth, falling into the ropes.

The referee announced a knockdown, giving Fury a standing count, before the fight continued and went the distance.

Ultimately, Usyk was crowned victorious following a split decision from the ringside judges.

The second fight will certainly be a big one.
