Alexander Usyk of the Ukraine and Tyson Fury of the UK hold all the recognized world heavyweight title belts at this particular time.
WBC, WBO, WBA and IBF.
Recently the two spoke for the first time on the phone.
The two appear to be on cordial, amicable terms given the friendly nature of the international dialogue conducted.
Now they have met in person.
Paying respect to Hall of Famer Bob Arum on his 90th birthday here are both Usyk and Fury ringside:
It is thought there might be some potential for a unification fight in 2022 between the two.
It would be a unique clash of fighting styles.
Should they both win their upcoming fights that is.
That is not a given.
Like nothing in heavyweight boxing is.
One-single punch can change everything.
In the blink of an eye.
Or drop of a hat.
It is thought Fury will likely face his mandatory next up.
Usyk a rematch with Anthony Joshua is next most likely.
Another good heavyweight fight this weekend too.
Between Joseph Parker of New Zealand and Dereck Chisora of the UK.
The winner could be in contention for a meaningful fight in 2022.
Bring on next weekend’s boxing.
What a time to be a boxing fan.
Boxing is buzzing at the moment.
