Tyson Fury profile & record

34-0-1 (24 KOs)

Fury turned professional in 2008, beating Bela Gyongyosi via a first-round TKO in Nottingham. He has never lost a professional fight and currently holds a 34-1-0 record, having drawn his first meeting with Deontay Wilder in 2018.

The 34-year-old, who was inactive between November 2015 and June 2018 as he battled with mental health issues, has picked up 24 victories via KO or TKO, with just 11 of his trips to the ring going the distance.

Since joining SugarHill Steward's team, Fury has won all five of his bouts.

Oleksandr Usyk profile & record

21-0-0 (14 KOs)

Usyk is a year older than Fury, but he turned professional much later in life after winning gold at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The Ukrainian made his professional debut in Kyiv in 2013, beating Felipe Romero by TKO in the fifth round, and he became the interim WBO cruiserweight champion in just his fifth fight.

He unified the cruiserweight division courtesy of a unanimous decision victory over Murat Gassiev in 2018 before defending his belts against Tony Bellew later that year.

A move up to the heavyweight division came in 2019 as he made easy work of Chazz Witherspoon prior to seeing off Chisora.

In just his third fight at heavyweight, Usyk outclassed Joshua to win the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts, and he repeated that feat in August 2022 before a controversial victory over Daniel Dubois took his overall record to 21-0, with 14 victories via KO or TKO and seven courtesy of a decision.
