Tyson Fury 'having fun' as 'fight of the century' vs. Usyk nears - ESPN

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Tyson Fury danced and sang along to some of his favorite hits during a light workout Wednesday evening, three days out from his undisputed heavyweight championship clash with Oleksandr Usyk.

England's Fury, 35, wrapped his hands to the tune of AC/DC's anthem «You Shook Me All Night Long.» He glided around the ring with trainer SugarHill Steward and pumped his right fist to the beat of The Killer's «Mr. Brightside.»

«I'm having fun. I always do, don't I?» Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) told ESPN following his 15-minute workout at the open-air entertainment hub Boulevard City. «All these fight weeks I enjoy.»

But Saturday's fight is a bit more special. The winner will be crowned boxing's first undisputed heavyweight champion since November 1999, when Lennox Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield in a rematch.

Lewis, who will be ringside Saturday, and Holyfield, are two all-time greats, and so are Fury and Usyk. It's rare for any heavyweight to be recognized as one of the pound-for-pound best in the world. Usyk is No. 3 on ESPN's list, and Fury is No. 10.

«It's the fight of the century,» said Fury, who suffered a cut in sparring that postponed this bout from its original Feb. 17 date. "[An undisputed heavyweight championship fight] has never happened this century before, and we're looking forward to putting on a fantastic show."

Fury's resume features a classic trilogy with Deontay Wilder that includes two wins and one draw, with the final bout named ESPN's Fight of the Year and KO of the Year in 2021. Fury has been boxing's lineal heavyweight champion since he upset Ukraine's Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

Now, Fury will meet another Ukrainian in Usyk, who like Holyfield, is a former undisputed cruiserweight champion
