Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk fight time: UK start time and how to watch

Tyson Fury takes on Oleksandr Usyk this weekend as the rivals meet to crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are just days away from their final meeting in the ring.

The heavyweight rivals have been on a collision course for more than a year after initially being scheduled to clash at Wembley last April. On that occasion terms could not be agreed and the fight was postponed until two days before Christmas, after which Fury’s fight to the death with Francis Ngannou threw a spanner in the works.

Fury and Usyk agreed to postpone their meeting until February 17 only because the Briton suffered a cut above his eye during one of his final sparring sessions. A new date was quickly arranged with both men now in Saudi Arabia ahead of Saturday night’s showdown. Here’s everything you need to know about the collision…

What UK time does the Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk fight start?

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are likely to walk to the ring on Saturday evening around 11pm UK time, which will be at 1am in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. But as fans found out when Anthony Joshua fought Francis Ngannou in March, the first bell could ring after midnight in Britain, meaning a late night for fight fans. The final start time will depend on how long it takes for the undercard fights to be completed. The first fights of the day start around 2:45 PM in the UK, with the official undercard starting at 5:00 PM.
