And due to the magnitude of the title fight, the Middle East are frontrunners to host with a mega fee to prise both men over to the desert.
Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum says Usyk’s side have already agreed a financial package they are happy with.
And now it could be over to the Gypsy King to do the same in order to get the genuine super-fight over the line.
Arum told Gareth A Davies: “I think the fighters want to fight each other, the question is where and the question is under what terms.
“If the fight ends up in Saudi Arabia each fighter will make his deal with the Saudis.
“Usyk’s people tell me that they have a deal that they’re satisfied with and now and if the Saudis are truly interested they’ll make a deal with us for Tyson Fury and we’re off to the races.
“The fight would take place either before or after Ramadan but the fighters don’t need a long window to prepare if it’s after Ramadan because neither are Muslim.”
It is claimed April 29 is a date being explored for the fight, which will likely land in Saudi Arabia or Wembley Stadium.
Hall of Famer Arum is in town this week as his fighter Artur Beterbiev, 38, defends his unified light-heavyweight titles against Anthony Yarde, 31.
And he plans for further talks with Fury’s UK promotional team of Frank Warren and son George.
Arum said: “I’m going over to London next week for the Artur Beterbiev – Anthony Yarde world title fight so I’ll be liaising in person with Frank and George and we’ll make whatever alternate arrangements we have to.”
