Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury is the most anticipated fight of the decade and it’s only 2021. Eddie Hearn has been dropping hints about the fight recently stating that a deal is just ‘weeks’ away when speaking to the Matchroom Boxing Youtube channel.
Joshua versus Fury was due to be finalised this week after reports from Fury’s managers that they would get handed a contract this week and Hearn confirmed this but stated that ‘We’ve sent a draft contract, they’ve sent some minor changes nothing too big, so again we’re moving in the right direction.’ so the deal is taking a little longer than expected.
Hearn let a few rumours slip a month ago about the possible date and location of Joshua and Fury’s fight with Singapore adding their name to the list of places willing to host the mega-fight.
Eddie has now said that their are six countries in contention with America and the Middle-East leading the charge. Both fighters are from the UK so this will come as a shock to any die hard local fans that wanted to see the fight on home turf.
‘We’re talking to Qatar, we’re talking to Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, we’re talking to Singapore, we’re talking to China, we’re talking to America.’
Are they betraying true fans by holding it abroad?
Who do you think will win this fight and where will it be held?
