TYSON FURY and Oleksandr Usyk are getting closer and closer to signing a deal for their huge undisputed title fight.
After months of negotiating, it appears Usyk has accepted Fury's terms which will see the Brit take home a massive 70-30 split of the revenue.
Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua for the second time last year to retain his WBA, WBO and IBF titles, picking up the Ring Magazine belt in the process.
Fury is the WBC champ and is coming off four huge consecutive stoppage wins himself.
The Gypsy King beat Deontay Wilder via TKO in 2020 to claim the title, before knocking him out in their trilogy clash last year.
Fury then overcame Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium, stopping him in the sixth round, and he beat Derek Chisora in December.
With no mandatory challengers due, and all the belts in the hands of just two fighters, the undisputed clash looks finally set to happen.

When is Fury vs Usyk going to take place?
A date has yet to be confirmed for Fury's potential undisputed clash with Usyk.
But according to Frank Warren, all parties are working towards an April 29 clash at Wembley Stadium.
“It’s on," the Queensberry promoter told talkSPORT.
"Subject to the contracts being sorted out, everyone is on the same page. We just have to keep moving it along and I’m sure it will happens.”
“That would be the date for the fight. At one stage I wasn’t sure if Tyson would be fit for it, but he’s okay.
“The bottom line is they have both come out and said what they want to do and obviously we have to get the contracts signed. Everybody is working on that to get everything finalised.”
Will there be a rematch clause?
Tyson Fury has claimed that Oleksandr Usyk wants to include a rematch clause in the contract for the fight.
He said: “I have been speaking to the lawyers today and Usyk’s people are talking about rematch clauses and all that bs.
“He is one to up the ante, how about there is no f***ing rematch clause? For both of us, let’s really up the ante.
“Never worry about what is in the future and how many more dollars you can get after you have been defeated.
“Worry about the fight on April 29.
“No rematch clause, the winner takes all the glory, the loser goes home with his dick in his hands.
“How about that? Agree to that you f***ing b***h."
However, the Ukrainian hit back and dismissed the WBC heavyweight champion's claims of a rematch clause.
He said: "Hey greedy belly, the rematch clause came from your side not mine.
"Stop whining and ducking. Be a man, ink the contract or vacate the belt.
"I need undisputed and not to play your stupid games."
What TV channel will it be on?
Fury vs Usyk has yet to be confirmed, but a TV channel will be announced once the fight is signed.
It's extremely likely we'll see the fight on BT Sport Box Office, where Fury's last seven fights have been shown.
Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank are set to promote the mega-event.

What has been said?
The pair met in the ring for a stare down following Fury's win over Chisora, and words have been exchanged since.
Usyk has released numerous videos in which he's taunted Fury by calling him 'belly'.
In each video, the Ukrainian can be seen pointing towards his stomach and shouting: “Hey, belly, I’m coming for you."
Usyk has also said: "Fury, you talk about greatness in boxing.
"But, at the same time, you say, 'Give me a lot of money’.
“Greatness in boxing is not determined by money. Greatness comes from a victorious path.
“You say that I avoid you, but I never have. In fact, I have even come to you.
“I am ready to box you even without any prize money."
Fury has said: “Tyson Fury here, WBC heavyweight number one. Usyk, calling out ‘The Gypsy King’ with your pathetic little call outs, dosser.
“Rabbit, I’m coming for you, rabbit, you’re getting it, rabbit.
“And I’ll tell you what else, I’m gonna bust you up real bad you little middleweight.
“I’m going to slap you into a big pile of tattoos, sucker. Come on!"
Fury has recently told his fans that he is going to stop trash-talking on social media and focus on training.
He said: "Hi guys, as fun as it's been over the last few days terrorising Usyk and his team, tomorrow I'm going to knuckle down into training camp.
"And I'll be doing a blackout as I always do on social media. Nav will be running my Instagram account, keeping you all updated on my training progress and how everything is going.
"April 29th is definitely a worker, I will see you all on the night. Tune in or be there or be square.
"This is the biggest event in British boxing history, the fight of the century.
