Tyson Fury will now fight Oleksandr Usyk in May after a cut to Fury in sparring before the original bout

Betting remains available on the fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk despite the bout being delayed due to an injury sustained to Fury last week.

The fight has now been rescheduled for May 18 and is once again expected to take place in Saudi Arabia according to event organiser Turki Alalashikh.

Fury's team posted on Friday that a cut above his right eye required medial attention and "significant stitching" and therefore needs to be postponed for a third time since 2023.

Usyk had said that he would fight Filip Hrgovic in February instead so he would still be fighting this month but that now looks like it won't happen with the May date set for Fury v Usyk.

What the expert says...

Tyson Fury will now face Oleksandr Usyk on May 18 with the bout now rescheduled after Fury suffered a brutal cut above his right eye in sparring last week.
