Oleksandr Usyk outlasted Tyson Fury to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion in 25 years, achieving an unprecedented feat in the four-belt era, Owosports.com.bg report.

The Ukrainian sensation won by split decision, solidifying his position as the best heavyweight boxer in the world.

The highly anticipated bout took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday, with Fury coming out strong in the early rounds. The British fighter’s aggressive approach seemed to catch Usyk off guard, but the Ukrainian quickly adjusted and gained momentum as the fight progressed.

Usyk’s superior footwork and technical skill allowed him to evade Fury’s powerful blows and land precise shots, gradually taking control of the fight. In the ninth round, Fury was visibly staggered, and the bell saved him from a potential knockout.

Despite Fury’s valiant effort to recover in the final rounds, Usyk’s dominance had already sealed the victory. The judges’ scorecards reflected the Ukrainian’s superiority, awarding him the win by split decision.

Usyk’s historic achievement marks a monumental moment in boxing history, as he becomes the first fighter to unify the WBA, WBO, IBF, and WBC titles in the heavyweight division since Lennox Lewis in 1999. This victory cements Usyk’s status as a boxing legend, and his name will be etched alongside the all-time greats.

The win also marks a triumphant return to the heavyweight division for Usyk, who previously held the undisputed cruiserweight title. His ability to adapt and excel in both weight classes showcases his exceptional skill and versatility as a boxer.
