So we have a first-ever undisputed heavyweight champion of the four-belt era and his name is OLEKSANDR USYK.

The Ukrainian has achieved so many accolades in his career from the amateurs and all through the professional ranks, but this is the pinnacle, the cherry on top of the cake.

Becoming the first man to land a defeat on Tyson Fury he now joins an elite list of men to boast the tag of undisputed heavyweight champion.

It is almost 25 years since the last Lennox Lewis’ reign and we have a new king of the heavyweights.

Fury played a major part in ensuring this way a fight for the ages. I was off my seat several times and in disbelief that he never hit the canvas in round nine.

That was some fight and certainly lived up to all expectations.

Thanks for joining us and, by the sounds of it, we’ll get to them do it all over again in October.
