    It will happen and the only reason it never happened this year was because Fury wanted an easy pay day first.

    Glad there finally will be an undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

    The stage is now set for Francis to KO Fury and the Usyk fight will not happen.

    Thinking exactly the same. I can't remember a fight ever been signed when a champion already has an up and coming one.

    It is a non title fight Fury has so he could get knocked out and still face Usyk.

    “Look, this is an important fight,” Fury told The Telegraph, “but again... I hate to say it, because the boxing fans and the boxing purists and all them w*****s don’t want to hear it, but why do you think I box? For the money.

    “If anybody in this building, or anybody in professional boxing, tells me they don’t do this game for money, they’re lying to you, and I speak from the heart. I do it for the dough. The bigger the deal, the better. I’m a prize-fighting pugilist specialist, that’s what I do. I fight for the prize, whether it be gold bars, gold coins, cash, transfers, cars – whatever you want to pay me, pay me in bags of sand for all I care. As long as I can make a drink on it, deal done.

    “This is a good fight, [but] I’m not too concerned about what people are going to be saying in 100 years. The dust from our bones won’t exist in 100 years, never mind what they say about a boxing match in 100 years. We’ll all be dead, my kids will be dead, my wife will be dead, my dad will be dead, anybody I ever cared about will be gone.

    “So, I’m going in there to get paid [...] and come back to Morecambe Bay. I probably won’t even buy anything, because I don’t need anything. I’ll do a bit of shopping, probably be tighter than I am today. I’ll do the rematch exactly the same.”

    Fury and Usyk are contracted to fight again, with their rematch expected to take place in October – likely in Riyadh, where they clash on Saturday (18 May).

    “I’m looking to do a demolition job on him,” Fury continued. “I just want to beat the silly sausage. Yes, Usyk is fast, talented, he outboxed a big heavyweight in Anthony Joshua twice, but ‘AJ’ is one-dimensional, one-paced, and I could outbox him with a blindfold on.

    “All I can do on Saturday night is go in there, give it my best shot, and – win, lose or draw – put my best foot forward and man up.

    “I’ll tickle his nuts,” Fury joked, before adding: “Seriously, I’ll do the best I can, whatever that might be.

    “I’m just different. It’s because I’m charismatic, tall, controversial, good-looking, can fight, all of the above. That’s why. There’s a lack of characters in this sport today; [there’s] a lot of businessmen and cash registers, but there ain’t so many characters. I’m a dying breed in this game.”

    ‘You’re looking at two very good, very determined fighters, guys that have never lost,’ legendary former heavyweight Lewis told The Guardian while previewing the fight, billed as Ring of Fire.

    ‘We’re going to see, 18 May, who is the best in this era.’

    Asked to predict ahead of next Sunday’s contest, Lewis replied: ‘I believe the bigger guy, the better guy, wins.

    ‘They both have good skill and Usyk has good movement, with good balance, and puts his punches together well. But he’s going up against a 6ft 9in guy and, for me, Tyson Fury is very elusive even if he is so big. If he makes you miss, he makes you pay.

    ‘It’s an interesting matchup but I always say if two guys have the same technical skill, the bigger fighter wins because he can force his size on the other guy.

    ‘It’s happened before where the smaller guy won but, in this case, Tyson Fury’s got lots of different weapons in his arsenal.

    ‘He has shown in the [three] fights with Deontay Wilder he is aggressive and moves forward well. Those fights really showed his skill, his talent, his ring generalship.

    ‘I would put money on Fury – as long as it is the 100 per cent focused Fury.’

    I've gone for Fury late KO and assuming, like Lewis has said, we're getting the 100% focused version.

    If we don't Usyk wins by points or Fury retires on his stool around the 10th. Then again I think an out of shape Fury would have withdrawn so maybe he'll fool us all again.

    I honestly think the fight will be an awful spectacle with their styles, Usyk will have to hit and run - he isn't going to stand and fight with size difference.

    Just hope it doesn't end on a cut as that outcome for a fight of this magnitude will be dogshit - but does give them a good reason for a rematch and more £££££££££££
