Joshua vs Fury: Promoter optimistic boxing bout will hold

1 min read

Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn says British Boxer with Nigeria Heritage, Anthony Joshua much anticipated heavyweight clash with Briton Tyson Fury is a ‘done deal’, despite recent doubts being raised by the WBC champion’s promoter Bob Arum.

The two had agreed to fight for the undisputed world heavyweight titles this summer, with Saudi Arabia expected to stage the blockbuster battle.

Arum, Fury’s US promoter, has openly questioned why a deal has not yet been finalised, but Hearn has dismissed any concerns about the fight not going ahead.

Earlier this month, Fury said that he could look at alternative options, with Arum saying he might revive talks for a third fight against Deontay Wilder.

But Hearn has ruled out suggestions that Anthony Joshua vs Fury will fall through if he cannot confirm the date and location in the next few days.

Fury stopped Wilder to claim the WBC title last February and they remain locked in an arbitration after failing to agree a third fight.
