Tyson Fury says Joshua fight is ‘no further forward today than a year ago’

WBC heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury has said his blockbuster  fight with Anthony Joshua is no closer to being arranged than it was a year ago report the BBC.

Speaking to ESPN Fury said: “They’ve had a full year to try and make this fight happen. It is what it is. We’re no further forward today than we were a year ago,”

“The way it is at the moment [with Covid-19], I don’t think it has got much to do with the fighters. It’s to do with the venue, date, place, site fees. It’s to do with everything but the fight itself.”

Joshua currently holds the IBF, WBO and WBA belts and a fight between the pair would see all four belts contested in a heavyweight fight for the first time in decades.

It’s been 22 years since an undisputed world heavyweight title fight took place when Lennox Lewis faced Evander Holyfield way back in 1999.

Boxing fans all over the world are excited to see the two British heavyweight square off but following Fury’s comments it doesn’t look promising.
