By Charles Brun: Promoter Frank Warren believes the April 29th undisputed heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk at Wembley Stadium will be the “highest-grossing event” of all time at Wembley Stadium in London.

While that might sound great for fans who are a bit slow on the uptake, what’s patently obvious is that it means higher ticket prices for the Fury-Usyk fight to make the contest the “highest-grossing event.” The big question is how much more expensive the tickets will be from past fights.

If the tickets are raised through the roof, putting fans out of house & home to try and come up with the dough, they won’t purchase them, and Wembley Stadium will be a ghost town on the night, and the promoters will wish they’d priced the tickets at a more fan-friendly.

It’s still a bit early to know for sure if the Fury-Usyk fight will even happen because Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) has to be happy with the dough he’s going to make for the fight from Wembley. Fury’s greed may continue to rear its ugly head, resulting in him not putting pen to paper if he doesn’t get the mega-millions he hoped to receive for the fight.

The 34-year-old Tyson has set roadblocks all along the way that Usyk has had to navigate past, making it clear that he didn’t fancy facing the arguably more athletic,  mobile, and, dare I say, more intelligent fighter. F

“It will be a fantastic event and the highest-grossing event ever to take place at Wembley, beating the previous one. The previous one was last April, again with Tyson,” said Frank Warren to talkSPORT Boxing about the Tyson Fury vs. Oleksander Usykfight on April 29th.

“He’s a megastar, and I’m delighted for him,” Warren said about Fury.  “People should acknowledge in him we’ve got a fighter who doesn’t duck anybody. We have to get the contracts signed. Everybody is working on that to get everything finalized.”

“Everyone wants to see the fight. He’s stepping up to the guy with two wins over Joshua and three belts.”

Does Fury really want Usyk fight?

“Usyk is a hero. He shows he’s more about legacy than anything else,” said Frank Smith to Secondsout, reacting to the news of Tyson Fry and Oleksandr Isy agreeing to a fight.

“There’s still a long way to go. Just because the two have agreed to the split doesn’t mean the fight is done,” Smith continued.

“Tyson Fury, I’m sure,  still has to be happy with the amount of money he’s going to earn from Wembley. That’s the question, and that’s not our business. , but let’s see. Hopefully, it does get made because that’s a massive fight for the sport.

“Oleksandr Usyk,” said Smith when asked who he believes will win.“I don’t think Tyson Fury really, really, really wants that fight. Because he’s put a lot of stumbling blocks,” said Smith when asked what makes him think Fury doesn’t want the fight. To get to this point, Usyk has accepted everything, hasn’t he?
