History is set to be made, with all four heavyweight belts having never been on the line in the same fight.
As negotiations rumble on behind the scenes, a petty war of words has already broken out between the two fighters.
Fury quickly responded, saying: “Usyk, calling out the Gypsy King with your pathetic little callouts, dosser.
“Rabbit, I’m coming for you rabbit. You’re getting it rabbit. And I’ll tell you what else, I’m going to bust you up real bad you little middleweight.
“I’m going to slap you into a big pile of tattoos, sucker.”
In his latest taunt, Usyk shared a picture of himself swinging an AXE at a tree stump.
The WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champ labelled the stump with Fury’s twitter handle.

He added: “The rabbit is coming for you. Belly.”
The fight is expected to take place in Saudi Arabia, with the Middle Eastern country set to offer a huge sum to host.
But it could still be moved to London if the Saudis don’t stump up the asking price.
Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum told BoxingScene: “Everybody agreed that if [Saudi Arabia’s] offer comes through and it’s real, that’s how we’ll go.
“If not, we’ll do the fight at Wembley.”
Usyk and Fury stared each other down in December at Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
“The Cat” had been watching on as Fury eased past Derek Chisora in their trilogy bout.
