Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk: The Gypsy King’s showdown

On Saturday, May 18, 2024, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, fans finally got to witness the epic showdown they’d been eagerly awaiting: Tyson Fury versus Oleksandr Usyk, two undefeated heavyweights. This historic bout marked the first time in nearly 25 years that the heavyweight title was unified. The action was set to kick off at noon Eastern Time, with the fighters expected to make their ringwalks around 6:05 p.m. ET.

In a high-stakes showdown, Tyson Fury, holding the WBC heavyweight title, put his belt on the line against Oleksandr Usyk‘s IBF, WBA, and WBO heavyweight belts. The victor would make history as the sole holder of all four major heavyweight boxing titles at once. However, it was Usyk who emerged triumphant, claiming a split decision win over Tyson Fury to clinch the undisputed heavyweight championship, a feat not seen since Lennox Lewis. The judges’ scores were close: 115-112, 113-114, 114-113, all in favor of Usyk.

Tyson Fury and Jake Paul

Jake Paul, known for his transition from YouTube sensation to professional boxer, has found himself in the spotlight alongside Tyson Fury on more than one occasion. One memorable moment occurred when Tyson Fury unexpectedly crashed Jake Paul’s interview, catching the YouTube star off guard and perhaps a bit flustered.

In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on February 26, 2023, Jake Paul stepped into the ring against Tommy Fury, the half-brother of Tyson Fury. Despite a late knockdown by Paul in the final round, Tommy Fury’s skillful use of a sharp jab and agile movement thwarted Paul’s attempts to land his power shots. When the final bell rang, two of the scorecards were in Fury’s favor, reading 76-73, while one judge saw it differently, scoring it 75-74 in favor of Paul.
