Let’s remind that the fight Usik – Chisora will take place on October 31 in Great Britain. To arrange this fight in 2020, the fighters agreed to a fee cut, since in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, organizers cannot count on ticket revenues.
Initially, Usyk’s fight with Chisora was scheduled for May, but it was decided to postpone it due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
