I am ready to rock and roll as always. I am looking forward to the challenge. “You would have to ask all the promoters and lawyers about how far away we are and all of that but like I always say time and time again, we are never in the ring till we are in the ring and nothing is ever on until you see me walk into that ring. “That is how far away we are from it really. You never know and saying you want to fight somebody and actually doing it is very different.”We have seen these big fights not happen in the past many, many times.”Usyk seems to be up for it and I can’t do anymore, I do what I do and hopefully we get the thing all sorted out.” Please use Chrome browser for a more accessible video player Johnny Nelson believes Tyson Fury will prove his dominance as a heavyweight king by beating Oleksandr Usyk. Bob Arum, CEO of Fury’s American promoters Top Rank, has revealed the venue is the only remaining obstacle to the fight being confirmed, with the Middle East leading the race.Arum told Sky Sports News the WBC king and WBA, WBO and IBF champion Usyk have agreed to the showdown and expects a location to be finalised in the next week.An unspecified country in the Middle East is the likely host for the hotly-anticipated contest due to the huge sums of money being talked about for both boxers, but if that does not happen then Wembley Stadium would be on the table.”I’m very optimistic the fight is going to happen,” Arum told Sky Sports News.”Both fighters have agreed to do the fight, the question is the site and we’re talking to the Middle East because allegedly they’re going to come up with the biggest purse ever in boxing history.”And if they do, that’s where the fight is going to go because money is money. If they don’t, both fighters will agree to do the fight this spring at Wembley… but the fight will happen in my opinion, certainly within the first four months of the year. Please use Chrome browser for a more accessible video player Promoter Bob Arum reveals that Fury and Usyk have agreed to fight each other, but the date and location are yet to be revealed. “Fighters want to do the best for themselves because a fighter’s career, no matter how great he is, is limited and they want to make as much money as possible.”So that’s the only issue – where will the fight be held? I would believe in the next week that will be determined and then we’ll have an official announcement of the date and site for the fight – but that fight is happening.”Saudi Arabia has emerged as a go-to venue for big-time boxing in recent years, including Usyk’s points victory over Anthony Joshua in their rematch last August, although Arum would not be drawn on which country could host and added “a couple” are in talks.If the promised purses do not materialise though, it could see a return to Wembley where Fury defended his WBC crown with a sixth-round stoppage of domestic rival Dillian Whyte last April in front of a crowd of 95,000.”To do 95,000 people in Wembley, which we did for the Dillian Whyte fight… a lot of my friends who went to that fight said it was one of their greatest, if not the greatest, experience going to an athletic event,” Arum said.”Now, if it’s a unification match between Tyson and Usyk, it’ll be even more spectacular.”Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Smith is on Saturday January 21, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
