Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk talks back ON with target date revealed… despite Daniel Dubois appealing KO loss | The Sun

TALKS for Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk's undisputed super-fight are back ON – despite the threat of a Daniel Dubois rematch.

The pair of unbeaten champions failed to get the division's first ever four-belt unification bout over the line earlier in the year.

Fury, 35, now faces ex-UFC champion-turned boxing debutant Francis Ngannou on October 28 in Saudi Arabia.

While Usyk, 36, was instead ordered into a WBA mandatory defence against Dubois this past weekend in Poland.

He won it in round nine following two knockdowns but it was not without controversy.

Usyk was floored in round five with a shot referee Luis Pabon adjudged to be low – leaving Dubois' team furious after watching replays.

Promoter Frank Warren revealed an appeal is set to be launched but he does NOT expect it to get in the way of a unification involving Fury next year.

He said on talkSPORT: "That fight, we were talking about doing that fight early next year and that is still the plan. 

"The plan was that the winner of the fight on Saturday was to fight Tyson early next year. So that won't go on before then.

"Because of what the bigger picture is, you can't just cast aside Daniel's situation. He was unfairly treated there."

Warren is hoping the knockout loss will be chalked off and a rematch will be called between Usyk and Dubois.

He said: "Although all the belts were on the line in the fight, it was the WBA's turn as far as their mandatory is concerned, so what we'll do, is we'll collate our photographic and video evidence and present it to them and present what was said at the rules meeting determining what were legal and what were illegal blows and they'll have to make a decision. 

"I'd like them to declare it a no contest because Daniel should be now having those three belts around his waist, but if we can get it to a rematch then that's where we'll get to.'

"I don't blame Alex [Krassyuk – Usyk's promoter] for what he's saying, because they don't want us asking for a rematch, but we're going to.

"Usyk, I've got a lot of respect for him, he was a tremendous cruiserweight and he's been a really good heavyweight, but he does have previous for complaining about low-blows, he done it against Anthony Joshua in their fights."
