Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have agreed to face each other not once, but twice, after successful talks between both camps, promoter Eddie Hearn revealed yesterday.
Discussions over a mouthwatering Battle of Britain, which would see all four major world heavyweight titles on the line, have been ongoing for months. And now Hearn, who represents Joshua, has confirmed that the financial elements of a mega-money two-fight deal have finally been agreed.
Saudi Arabia (5/4) is the early favourite with the bookmakers to host the fight, ahead of Las Vegas (2/1), and then Wembley (5/1).
“We’re making great progress,’ Joshua’s promoter Hearn said. “There is still a lot to overcome. We are looking at venues and dates.”
“We have the Dillian Whyte mandatory which is due before this fight. “ It’s fair to say (Joshua and Fury) are in agreement regarding the financial terms of the fight.”
