The boxing world will have to wait to see the crowning of an undisputed heavyweight champion. The pay-per-view showdown between titleholders Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk , scheduled for Feb. 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has been postponed after Fury suffered a cut over his right eye in sparring. Fury’s co-promoter, Queensbury, called the injury a “freak cut” in the statement announcing the postponement. No new date for the fight has been announced.
