Frank Warren has told talkSPORT that a draft contract has been sent to Oleksandr Usyk‘s team for an undisputed heavyweight showdown with Tyson Fury.

A potential fight between the pair is being looked at for March, although Warren confirmed that no location has been determined.

Saudi Arabia has been strongly linked to host boxing’s first undisputed heavyweight title fight in over two decades.

“We know what it can generate in the UK, but if it goes elsewhere then that depends on what the numbers are”, said Warren.

Fury halted Dereck Chisora inside ten rounds last month in defence of his WBC heavyweight title.

Ukraine’s Usyk last appeared in Usyk when he defeated Anthony Joshua for a second time in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Team Fury were hoping to land the Usyk fight for the end of 2022 before the Ukrainian stated he would not be available until next year due to injury.

Boxing has not had an undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis‘ defeat of Mike Tyson in 2002.
