Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk undercard confirmed and fans have been left divided

Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk undercard confirmed and fans have been left divided

The Fury vs Usyk undercard is official.

The undercard for Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk has been officially confirmed - and not all fans are happy.

Fury was due to fight Usyk in a unified heavyweight title clash on February 17, but was forced to withdraw two weeks out from the fight after suffering a cut above his eye in sparring.

The bout was rescheduled for May 18, and will take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Usyk's promoter, Alex Krassyuk, stated that he had 'no guarantee' over whether the fight will actually take place, given Fury's earlier withdrawal.

But the fight date has been set, and the undercard has now been confirmed by TNT Sports.

The undercard will be headlined with Jai Opetaia's rematch against Mairis Breidis for The Ring cruiserweight title - a match that was due to take place on the original Fury vs Usyk card.

Moses Itauma and Joe Cordina are also on the card, while Agit Kabayel vs Frank Sanchez will also take place on the night in Riyadh.

Elsewhere, the card will also see the return of Russian fighter Sergey Kovalev, who has boxed only once since suffering an 11th-round knockout defeat to Canelo Alvarez in November 2019.

You can see the full undercard below.

However, the undercard hasn't filled some fans with much excitement for the event.

One wrote: "What a terrible undercard. Surely there are better, more well-known bouts around?????"

A second said: "That undercard is one of the worst I've seen especially for a fight this big."

A third bluntly stated: "Who are most of these boxers? I like to think I know a bit about boxing but most of them I've never heard of."

However, some fans were more positive, with one writing: "Good to see Moses Itauma is on it, definitely another win for him."

And a second said: "I would love to see Kabayel vs Sanchez."

A third wrote: "Great undercard.. Opetaia, Cordina, Kovalev, Kabayal."

And a fourth commented: "People saying this is a terrible card, it really isn't. Four quality fights right there. I think it's a decent card!"
