TYSON FURY and Oleksandr Usyk WILL “without a doubt” fight next year in a historic undisputed title match.

All four world championship titles have never been held in the heavyweight division.

But that will change in 2023 when Top Rank president Todd DuBoef expressed his confidence in Fury, 34, and Usyk, 35, battling for the marbles.

He told Sky Sports: “I think that’s without a doubt. That is everyone’s goal.

“I think both fighters want it, the fans want it and it’s the crowning moment for the heavyweight champion.”

Fury was looking to fight Usyk next after the Ukrainian defeated Anthony Joshua, 32, on points for the second time.

But the boxing hero locked himself out until next year after returning to his war-torn homeland for the first time after a break from training.

So Fury made the shock decision to call AJ and talks ensued for the pair to fight in Cardiff on December 3.

However, a deal could not be agreed and Derek Chisora, 38, is now the unlikely alternative to challenge for the WBC title.

This is despite losing to Fury twice in 2011 and 2014, although DuBoef said no opponent has been officially agreed upon.

He said: “There is nothing to report. As I’ve said time and time again, we wish it was AJ.

“All I can tell you is that he wants to fight before the end of the year. That was the direction we got from him.

“I’ll be checking his social media and see what he posts next!”
