For the first time in 25 years, an undisputed boxing heavyweight champion will be crowned on May 18. After years of coexisting as champions, Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will both enter the Kingdom Arena with their respective belts with only one set to leave as the unified titleholder.

The May 18 date will be the third time his Excellency Turki Alalshikh has attempted to put the fight together. Fury withdrew from both previously scheduled dates with injuries but the two juggernauts will finally meet in Saudi Arabia.

Aside from the high-profile main event, two other titles will be on the line in Riyadh. Both the IBF junior lightweight and cruiserweight titles will be on the line, with 130-pound champion Joseph Cordina set to defend his belt on the undercard against Anthony Cacace as the first titleholder to compete in the event.

In the penultimate fight, Jai Opetaia and Mairis Briedis will compete for the vacant IBF cruiserweight championship. Opetaia previously held the belt until late 2023, temporarily vacating the title but will look to reclaim his former strap. Check out the full results for the 'Ring of Fire' fight card below.
