BIG FIGHT COUNTDOWN: Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk Fight Week Schedule

Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed world heavyweight boxing title happens on Saturday

The build up to the fight of the century between Morecambe's Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is under way and here is what's coming up this week.

The two men in the battle for the undisputed world heavyweight boxing championship have a packed schedule of events in the run-up to Saturday's big fight in Saudi Arabia.

Fury and Usyk will take part in a 'Grand Arrivals' event in Riyadh today (May 14) at 7pm UK time.

Then the rivals will participate in an Open Workout for the press and public on Wednesday, May 15, again at 7pm UK time.

The final press conference for the undisputed clash will take place on Thursday, May 16, at 7pm UK time.

Then the two fighters will weigh in on Friday May 17 at 6pm UK time.

All these events will take place at Boulevard City Music World in Riyadh and will be available to watch on YouTube via the Queensberry Promotions channel.

The fight itself will happen at the Kingdom Arena on Saturday, May 18.

Ring walks for both fighters are expected at 11pm UK time.

Fury vs Usyk is available to watch in the UK on Sky Sports Box Office and TNT Sports Box Office, as well as on the DAZN online streaming channel.

Many venues across the North Lancashire and Morecambe Bay area will be screening the fight.

The fight, billed as 'Ring of Fire', will be the first time the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles will have all been on the line, as well as the IBO, Ring Magazine, lineal and 'Riyadh Season' belts, and will crown the first undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis in 2000.

Both boxers are undefeated in their professional careers.

The 35-year-old WBC and lineal champion Fury (34-0-1) has lived in the Morecambe area for more than 15 years and has been training for the fight at his gym at Morecambe Football Club.

The 37-year-old Usyk (21-0) from Ukraine is the WBA, IBF and WBO champ, and is a former undisputed cruiserweight world champion and Olympic gold medallist.

The fight was due to take place in February but was delayed when Tyson suffered a bad cut over his eye while sparring. 

Fury's friend and training partner, Morecambe featherweight Isaac 'The Westgate Warrior' Lowe, will also fight on Saturday's bill, taking on Hasibullah Ahmadi.

Beyond Radio will have a special big fight preview on our weekly Beyond the Headlines news and sport show this Friday from 10am to 2pm.
