WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury will face off against WBA, IBF, and WBO titleholder Oleksandr Usyk in a 12-round showdown for the undisputed heavyweight crown on Sat., May 18, 2024 at Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Fans planning to stream the “Ring of Fire” pay-per-view (PPV) event on DAZN (order it here) will need to cough up $69.99, which is $10 cheaper than what boxing fans paid to watch “The Gypsy King” struggle against Francis Ngannou last fall.

In addition, the Fury vs. Usyk lineup gives viewers a lot more bang for the buck.

“Ring of Fire” start time is 12 p.m. ET with main event ring walks at or around 6 p.m. ET.

“Oleksandr Usyk’s a real bad man and to underestimate Usyk you’d be a mug,” Fury told Queensberry Promotions. “So I’m training hard for him, I’m doing everything I can. I respect Usyk as a man. I respect his career as well — Olympic champion, undisputed cruiserweight champion, unified heavyweight champion. You have to respect that, I’m fighting the real deal. I’m looking forward to the challenge. He’s got good footwork, good boxing ability, technically sound. He’s proved he can mix it with the big heavyweights because he’s beat Anthony Joshua and Daniel Dubois. I’m messing with an elite fighter.”
