History will be made Saturday night in Saudi Arabia when Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk meet to unify all four heavyweight titles, the first time it has been done since Lennox Lewis in 1999.

Though, the fight has already provided drama, with Fury’s father John headbutting one of Usyk’s teammates on Monday.

Thankfully that the incident has not threatened Saturday’s main event, which was delayed by three months when Tyson suffered a cut over his eye in February.

The bout is now closer than ever, with Briton Fury and Ukraine’s Usyk appearing at a press conference on Thursday – where little was said from either man, in all honesty – and the weigh-in marks the final face-off before the first bell.

Both men’s undefeated resumes are well-documented, as is their level of competition, making it a potential once-in-a-lifetime heavyweight bout.

At their final pre-fight media availability Thursday, Top Rank Chairman Bob Arum chronicled how big the fight is and said there is nothing like a heavyweight title fight, especially of this magnitude.

“When we have the opportunity to have an undisputed heavyweight champion crowned, as we will Saturday night, it is something very significant.”

Fury and Usyk kept it short and both said they can’t wait to face each other, wanting to put on a show for the fans in attendance and at home.
