HE Turki Alalshikh, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the General Entertainment Authority (GEA), has today announced that Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will meet again with the eagerly awaited rematch confirmed to take place during Riyadh Season 2024 at Kingdom Arena on Saturday December 21.

HE Turki Alalshikh said: “The quality of the first fight has left fans globally wanting more so we are delighted to already be able to confirm the rematch as part of Riyadh Season 2024. It is a chance for both fighters to write another chapter in boxing history and deliver what everyone around the world wants to see.”
