Fans in for festive feast of sport with World Cup final, Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk & Premier League Boxing Day return | The Sun

August 22, 2022

SPORT fans are set for a festive treat this December with a bumper schedule of incredible events in the works.

SunSport reported today that Tyson Fury could come out of retirement to fight Oleksandr Usyk in a huge heavyweight unification bout on December 17.


The "retired" Gypsy King wants to return in a £125million showdown with Anthony Joshua's conqueror Usyk.

Fury and Usyk could throw down in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – meaning a likely prime time slot for UK fans.

On Saturday night the Gypsy King, 34, declared: "England has been relieved of its belts but there is a remedy.

“If you want those belts back then send in the Gypsy barbarian.”

He then bellowed "It's going to be very expensive, so get your f***ing cheque book out" – before labelling Usyk and Joshua's title fight as "s***e".

Less than 24 hours later, fans will be able to feast on another festive treat – the 2022 Fifa World Cup final.

The last two teams standing will face off in Lusail, Qatar at 3pm UK time on December 18 for the honour of being crowned champions of the world.

Three Lions fans will hope that Harry Kane and Co can follow a Tyson Fury triumph on what could be a huge sporting weekend for England.
