The historic undisputed heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk could become part of a sensational double bill featuring Anthony Joshua’s fight against Deontay Wilder.

The fight between champions Fury and Usyk was signed in October and the bout is set to take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Terms have also been agreed for former two-time heavyweight champion Joshua to fight hard-hitting American Wilder, with no date or venue announced.

Fury must first come through uninjured in a non-title bout against MMA star Francis Ngannou on Saturday in Riyadh

Briton Fury is the WBC champion and Ukraine’s Usyk holds the WBA, WBO and IBF titles.

The winner will be crowned the first undisputed heavyweight champion in the four-belt era.

Fury has won 33 fights with one draw since turning professional in 2008, while Usyk, who has won all 21 pro bouts, defended his titles against Londoner Daniel Dubois in August.
