Get ready for a clash of the titans in the world of boxing! Tyson Fury's highly anticipated fight with Oleksandr Usyk is on course to clash with the epic showdown between Chris Eubank Jr and Conor Benn. This news comes as a huge blow to boxing fans who were hoping to witness both battles.
Eddie Hearn's Dilemma
Eddie Hearn, who represents Conor Benn, is eager for the fight to happen in the UK. However, he has recently revealed that he has received international offers as well. It remains to be seen where this battle of the fighters will take place.
Benn's Recent Victory
Conor Benn recently returned to the ring to defeat Rodolfo Orozco, proving that he is in top fighting form. This victory has added even more excitement to the upcoming clash.
Eubank's Impressive Win
In a thrilling match earlier this month, Chris Eubank Jr emerged victorious against Liam Smith. This win has established Eubank as a formidable opponent and has only heightened the anticipation for his fight against Benn.
Possible Date Clash
The promoter, Eddie Hearn, has suggested that the highly awaited Benn vs Eubank Jr fight could take place on December 23. However, this is the same day that the Fury vs Usyk clash is scheduled to happen. Boxing fans are now anxiously awaiting confirmation and hoping for a resolution that avoids overlap.
A Deal Still in the Works
Although both fighters have yet to agree on the details of their bout, Hearn has expressed his desire to finalize the agreement soon. The possibility of pushing back the fight to avoid a clash with Fury vs Usyk is also being considered.
The Fury vs Usyk Showdown
Tyson Fury is currently set to face Francis Ngannou on October 28, which gives the Gypsy King just eight weeks to prepare for his highly anticipated clash with Oleksandr Usyk. Boxing aficionados are eagerly waiting to witness this undisputed heavyweight battle.
A Delayed Matchup
It's worth noting that the original date for Benn vs Eubank was set for October 8, 2022. However, this match was postponed when Benn failed a drug test. Since then, Eubank has fought twice, losing to Liam Smith before delivering a knockout in their rematch earlier this month.
As fight promoters continue to navigate these scheduling challenges, boxing fans are eagerly awaiting updates and hoping for a resolution that will allow them to witness both thrilling matchups.
