The much-anticipated heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is finally here.

On Saturday night, the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh will witness greatness as Fury and Usyk face off in a battle for the ages

As we count down the hours to the most significant heavyweight bout in over 20 years, fans are buzzing with questions.

Fury must take down Usyk to keep legacy intact

Is Tyson Fury still the formidable force he once was? His lackluster performance against Francis Ngannou raised eyebrows.

Was it just an off night or has 'The Gypsy King' lost his edge? Can he still deliver the same level of dominance that made him a household name?

He defeated Ngannou on points in an unconvincing performance, a situation made worse by the fact that Anthony Joshua made light work of Ngannou in March.

Meanwhile, Oleksandr Usyk is looking to make a statement and cement his legacy. A win against Fury would be a massive boost to his reputation, but a loss could raise doubts about his ability to compete at the highest level.

And then there's the elephant in the room - Anthony Joshua, eagerly waiting in the wings, ready to step in.

How will this fight impact the legacies of both Fury and Usyk, and what does it mean for everyone else?

One thing is certain, Fury has one job; win and win convincingly or questions will be asked about a possible decline.
