Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have signed a deal for an undisputed world heavyweight title fight, promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed. The British rivals have been locked in lengthy negotiations in recent months but have now finalised terms for the blockbuster battle, with a date and venue to be confirmed.
“All parties have now put pen to paper and we will be working hard over the next few weeks to confirm the site and date for the biggest fight in boxing.” Joshua’s promoter Hearn said.
“Any option. Home turf, Middle East, my back garden, your back garden. I don’t mind where it is.” Joshua said. “I’m just ready to fight. I want that belt. I want to compete with Fury so all options are open to me.”
“[The pandemic] is getting close to things being normal. We’re working on a date for around June,” he added. “So if Tyson is serious, which I think he is, he’ll know where to come and find the boss! I’m ready. I’m really looking forward to competition – all I want to do is fight, fight, fight!”
