  • Oleksandr Usyk is a former Olympic Gold Medalist and the former undisputed cruiserweight world champion.
  • Usyk is coming off a ninth-round TKO finish of Daniel Dubois in August 2023.
  • Usyk's next opponent is Tyson Fury for the undisputed heavyweight world title on May 18.

Oleksandr Usyk is fresh from his undisputed heavyweight title defense against Daniel Dubois in August 2023, where he knocked out the British boxing star in the ninth round of their world title showdown. It was the 21st career victory for the Ukrainian, who now resides in Oxford, California.

His immaculate record of 21 wins, including 14 TKO/KOs, has made Usyk a household name in BetMGM’s online sportsbook as a favorite boxer to place a bet on boxing odds. But when will he return inside the ring? And who will he face next?

When Is Oleksandr Usyk’s Next Fight?

Usyk’s next opponent will be Tyson Fury, as they finally agreed to fight after years of failed negotiations. The two boxing superstars will battle for all the world title belts in the heavyweight division. They were initially scheduled to meet inside the ring on Feb. 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, but it was pushed back to May 18 because of Fury’s injury during training.
