Saudi Arabia offered Usyk three times as much for the fight with Fury

Promoter Bob Arum said that WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) should have earned about $ 20 million for a fight with WBC belt holder Tyson Fury if it took place on April 29 at Wembley Stadium.

At the same time, Arum claims that under the deal that Usyk had previously agreed with the Arabians, he was supposed to earn $60 million.

Note that the fight was originally scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia, but the Arabians could not confirm that the construction of the new stadium in Jeddah could be completed in time. Teams of boxers tried to agree on holding the fight on April 29 at Wembley, but this did not bring a positive result.
