Anthony Joshua held a meeting with promoter Eddie Hearn to finalise the Tyson Fury fight, with only ‘minor details’ to resolve for the undisputed world title clash. The WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion visited the Matchroom Boxing boss on Wednesday to discuss the remaining terms for his blockbuster battle against WBC titleholder Fury this year.
“Contracts have been backwards and forwards,” Hearn said. “Only minor details to be resolved on both ends. We’re in a good place. AJ was in the office yesterday with us. We had a good meeting to finalise our side of stuff.”
“I hate saying two weeks, but two weeks (until an announcement),” he added. “We’re on the verge now of getting this fight done. We want to make sure the ink is dry, and then we’ll go out and finalise the site details. I’m going to keep quiet for now, which probably won’t last for too long, but in the meantime working hard to finalise what is the absolute biggest fight in boxing.”
