In a statement, Fury said: ‘I am absolutely devastated after preparing for this fight so long and being in such superb condition.

‘I feel bad for everyone involved in this huge event and I will work diligently towards the rescheduled date once the eye has healed.

‘I can only apologise to everyone affected including my own team, Team Usyk, the undercard fighters, partners, and fans as well as our hosts and my friends in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.’ 

Now fans believe they may never get to see Fury and Usyk square off in the ring. 

One user wrote on X: ‘This fight is just never going to happen’.

Another added: ‘I genuinely think Tyson Fury vs Usyk will never happen now’.

In addition another fan admitted concerns about whether the fight will take place. They wrote: ‘Fury Vs. Usyk off. Will never believe it until I watch them enter the ring.’ 

Another user wrote: ‘So Fury was getting battered in sparring then. We will never see that fight. #FuryUsyk’.

Meanwhile, another fan wrote: ‘Kind of knew this fight wouldn’t happen… one way or another. Undisputed will never happen’.
