Oleksandr Usyk's handlers are not concerned with a recent mandatory order to face Filip Hrgovic.

Usyk, who holds the IBF, WBO, IBO and WBA heavyweight titles, is coming off back to back decision wins over Anthony Joshua.

He wants to pursue an undisputed fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury in early 2023.

But, the IBF recently issued an order for a mandatory fight between Usyk and Hrgovic - and Eddie Hearn, co-promoter for Hrgovic, has asked for an immediate purse bid.

Usyk's promoter is not worried about a Fury fight being derailed by mandatory obligations.

"At this stage I can anticipate that it will not influence the undisputed anyhow," Usyk's promoter, Alexander Krassyuk, told Sky Sports.

Fury is staying busy - with a voluntary defense scheduled for December 3, against Derek Chisora, at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Usyk is hoping to get Fury in the ring in the first quarter of the coming year.

"We expect his next fight to be for the undisputed so most likely it will take place in the Middle East," Krassyuk revealed.

However, promoter Ben Shalom of BOXXER would love to help Usyk make his fights in the UK. 

"We think his fights should be in the UK. We'd love to work with Oleksandr and that's something that we are speaking about," Shalom told Sky Sports.

"He wants to fight in the UK, he knows that the UK is probably a very strong market. We've seen him over here so many times, we'd love to have him over in the UK, really build his message and build his following and have him on the home side. Because he's always come over here, whether it was [against Tony] Bellew or [Derek] Chisora and he's always been the away fighter.

"I think British fans have really bought into Oleksandr Usyk and his personality over the past few years and everything that he's done in Ukraine is inspirational as well. I think the UK can really get behind that. He can be a star in the UK. He can be the home fighter for the first time and obviously he's a unified world champion at the moment and one of the biggest stars in the sport."
