Tyson Fury and Usyk 'given two days' to strike undisputed deal and step-aside money for Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte

Tyson Fury has two days to finalize a deal to face Alexander Usik in an undisputed heavyweight title fight.

Talks between the pair over a blockbuster unification bout have been going on since last November, though no serious progress has been made.

And the fight currently hinges on both Anthony Joshua and Dillian White, who are accepting separate money for their encounters with Usyk and Fury within the next 48 hours.

SunSport understands that former unified heavyweight king Joshua is currently considering a £15 million offer to skip his rematch with Usic.

And WBC mandated challenger White is understood to be ready to accept £5m to walk away from his clash with Fury, although he wants a written guarantee that he will eventually be given a title shot.

And according to The Daily Star, Usik vs. Fury will be dead in the water if no deal is reached and individual deals are not finalized by Wednesday.

This failure would pave the way for Fury’s long-awaited performance with former training partner White to eventually go into purse bids.

The pair’s clash has been delayed due to White’s refusal to accept a proposed 80–20 split in Fury’s favor.

White, 33, has stuck to his position as the interim WBC heavyweight champion entitled him to a bigger piece of the pie.

If a settlement is reached, Fury and White are expected to settle their score on March 26.

On Tuesday morning, Fury urged White and Joshua to go ahead with deciding their next move.

He said in a Twitter video, “Tik tok tik tok is the topic of today.

“Is Dillian White going to fight me? Is Anthony Joshua going to step aside? Tell me because I’m sick of looking at these butts.

“Sick to hear their excuses.

“Tick ticking time has run out of bottle, you all have a good hide, coward!”

Fury’s demands came a day after Joshua denied reports that he was walking away from his rematch with the undefeated Usik.

He said: “I watch some interviews that quote what I’ve said and I think to myself, ‘I haven’t done any interviews.’

“Where did this person get this information from? I hear people saying ‘AJ accepts £15m for a layover.’

“I haven’t signed a contract, I haven’t seen a contract. So as it stands, stop listening until it comes from my side.

“I am the one who controls my destiny, I am the one who manages my business, I am a smart person and I make decisions every step of the way.

“Don’t listen to other sources… if I tell you something you know it’s real.”
