An incredible fight deserves an incredible trailer, and Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk absolutely has that, as of now…
In a little over a fortnight – on Saturday February 17 to be exact – Fury (34-0-1) and Usyk (21-0) will lock horns in a fascinating battle to crown boxing’s first undisputed heavyweight champion since the great Lennox Lewis back in 1999.
The build-up to that superfight in Saudi Arabia ramped up considerably on Wednesday evening when the Saudi money men behind the fight and that incredible Riyadh Season released an epic fight trailer.
General Entertainment Authority Chairman Turki Alalshikh posted the trailer on his X account, and it is 164 seconds of spectacular production quality.
The trailer features Fury and Usyk battling as Wild West cowboys, as gladiators, as pirates and as anime characters. It’s spellbinding stuff, complete with guest stars including Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby of Peaky Blinders fame) and ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rumble’ ring announcer Michael Buffer.
Turki Alalshikh also confirmed in his post that Fury vs Usyk will be streamed live around the world on global streaming platform DAZN. It’s also expected to air on ESPN in the United States, and it would not be a surprise to see it streamed on TNT Sports (formerly BT Sport) in the UK as well.
