OLEKSANDR USYK will “study” Tyson Fury’s WBC title fight with Dillian Whyte on Saturday at Wembley.
That is according to Usyk‘s promoter Alexander Krassyuk, who confirmed the Ukrainian star’s team will be in the capital to scout the competition in the weekend.
The 35-year-old is expected to defend his WBA, WBO and IBF belts in a rematch against Anthony Joshua this summer after a unanimous points victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.
Fury could be Usyk’s next opponent in a title unification bout in case of another win over Joshua, who could also secure an all-British battle if he beats the Ukrainian.
Krassyuk told Sky Sports: “Definitely yes [we will be watching the fight].
“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.”
Fury recently hinted at retirement after this weekend’s fight with Whyte.
However, the Gypsy King insists he is only concentrated on the upcoming bout and will address his future once the dust settles.
Fury said: “To be honest with you I am only thinking about Dillian Whyte, I am not thinking about retirement.

“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.”
