0 151

After considering multiple offers for their blockbuster battle, Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have agreed on a venue for their encounter.

The much anticipated encounter would produce boxing number 1 heavyweight champion.

Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn, revealed that the unified champion, Joshua, and WBC title holder, Fury have reached agreement but are yet to reveal a date and venue.

Hearn said, “Both sides have approved the site offer that they want to go with, and now we’re just finalising the site deal and we’re in a great place.

“I saw Tyson yesterday. I just messaged him and said, ‘I’m in Vegas, I’m in your hotel if you fancy a cuppa’.

“We just had five or 10 minutes together and it was good, because I don’t represent Tyson Fury, so I don’t know what is in his mind. What he basically cemented in my mind was, this is the only fight he wants, and I know that’s the same with AJ.

“It just good to say, right we’ve got the offer, we all approve. We’re moving forward now. We’re good.

“It has been agreed by both sides, the option that we will take, and you’ll get the date very soon and the official announcement.”

With the fight scheduled to hold this summer, Saudi Arabia, America, China, Qatar, Singapore, Dubai and Britain have all been in the running to host the bout.

“Everybody wants this fight as soon as possible. There is no option for this fight to go at the back end of the year, and I’ve made that clear. The hardest thing about securing the site is in this world we live in today, most people would like to kick it to November, December. That’s not available. It was never available.

“What was available was a summer fight for the undisputed world heavyweight championship. That is what you’re going to get. Both guys want two fights this year. One will be in the summer and one will be in December.”
