The Ukrainian is preparing for a historic fight on DAZN PPV.

Oleksandr Usyk is no stranger to big fights. 

The Ukrainian has been involved in numerous world title fights and has become the undisputed champion at cruiserweight. 

Usyk continued this success when he moved up to heavyweight in 2019 and he has already got some impressive wins, including back-to-back successes against Anthony Joshua for the IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight titles. 

Now Usyk has finally got his opportunity to face the man he has been chasing for a long time, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. 

The pair will go head-to-head in Riyadh this coming Saturday on DAZN PPV with the winner becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion of the century and the first in the four-belt era. 

The eyes of the world will be focusing on Saudi Arabia where a piece of sporting history will be made, and with that comes an immense pressure for both fighters. 

But is Fury the toughest fight of Usyk's career so far? The 37-year-old gave the following response in an interview with DAZN

"I think so, big, tough, very big," Usyk said.

"But size doesn’t matter, if size matters, the king of the animals would be an elephant.

"I don’t have a prediction, but I will win beautifully."
