Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury sign deal for two fights
Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have signed a two-fight deal for an undisputed world heavyweight title fight.
Negotiations between the two British boxers have been going on for the past months.
An agreement has finally been reached for the blockbuster battle, with a date and venue to be confirmed.
Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, told Sky Sports: “All parties have now put pen to paper.
“We will be working hard over the next few weeks to confirm the site and date for the biggest fight in boxing.”
Joshua defeated Bulgarian boxer, Kubrat Pulev last December to retain his IBF, WBO and WBA titles, while Fury currently holds the WBC belt.
This comes after Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn assured fans that the fight is definitely on.
‘Tyson Fury’s gonna get his wish. We are in, we are in,’ he told Boxing Social last week.
‘Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The undisputed king is going to be Anthony Joshua and this fight will happen.
‘This fight is on, trust me.’
