Weather of Arabia - Today, Saturday, the Saudi capital, Riyadh, will host the “Ring of Fire” fight between British boxers Tyson Fury and Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, in the first match to unify the world heavyweight belts in 25 years.

The importance of this fight in the “Kingdom Arena” comes from the fact that it will determine one world heavyweight champion who holds four world belts. The winner will also be an undefeated champion, as neither boxer has recorded a loss in their career so far.

Both British Fury and Ukrainian Usyk arrive in Riyadh undefeated, and each of them is looking forward to becoming the first world champion to collect four heavyweight belts.

There has not been an undisputed heavyweight champion since 1999, with the champion then holding only three belts from the WBC, WBA and IBF. This time, the title will also include the WBO belt, making this the first fight of its kind in the era of four belts.

Fury, 35, holds the World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight title, while Usyk, 37, holds the other three belts: International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing Association (WBA), and World Boxing Organization (WBO).
