Due to the magnitude of the historic undisputed decider, Middle Eastern money men are fronting huge sums to host.
Usyk, 35, won and retained the WBA, IBF and WBO titles after twice beating Anthony Joshua, 33, on points.
And Fury, 34, held up his end of the bargain by beating Derek Chisora, 38, in December for the third time in their series.
Joshua was offered the end of year blockbuster but negotiations collapsed.
And Fury now doubts the Battle of Britain will ever commence as he looks towards a mega-money payday against Usyk.
He told iFL TV: “That’s the bigger fight, in terms of money, 100 per cent, probably double the amount.
“I’ll earn double the amount from Usyk than I will from the other sausage.
“If it was going to happen it would have happened in December, 100 per cent.
“I’m looking to fight Usyk, Joshua’s nemesis, the man who’s got AJ’s kryptonite, who made him cry after the fight like a little girl. ‘I’m 18 stone’, so? I’m 20 stone. I’ll beat him.
“I’ll take that little sausage out, he ain’t got no kryptonite to me, he’s f*** all to me. He’s a little f***er, and I’m going to make him dance.
“We’ll see how good he is, I’ll show you how a proper, proper Englishman does to a little mush when I get him in there, get up!”
