Frank Warren, promoter for WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, says their goal for 2024 has not changed - they intend to pursue an undisputed fight with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk.
Usyk was in action last Saturday night in Poland, where he picked up a ninth round knockout of mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois.
Warren is also the promoter of Dubois.
During the fifth, Dubois connected with a body shot that sent Usyk down in pain for several minutes. The referee, Luis Pabon, ruled it as a low blow.
After several video replays were shown, from different angles, there has been a mountain of debate over whether or not the punch was legal.
Warren intends to file an appeal on Dubois' behalf - hoping to secure his man a rematch and overturn the outcome to a no-contest.
However, Warren indicates that Dubois' appeal would not affect a potential Fury vs. Usyk encounter.
"Well no really because that fight [between Fury and Usyk], we were talking about doing that fight early next year and that is still the plan," Warren said to Talk Sport.
"The plan was that the winner of the fight on Saturday was to fight Tyson [Fury] early next year. So that won't go on before then. Because of what the bigger picture is, you can't just cast aside Daniel's situation. He was unfairly treated there.
'Although all the belts were on the line in the fight, it was the WBA's turn as far as their mandatory is concerned, so what we'll do, is we'll collate our photographic and video evidence and present it to them and present what was said at the rules meeting determining what were legal and what were illegal blows and they'll have to make a decision."
