Anthony-Joshua and Fury Fight-Deal Agreement

World’s British heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have accepted to a two-fight deal, reported by promoter Eddie Hearn.

Negotiations over this historic bout for the undisputed title will begin in early May.

Joshua, 30, won the WBA, IBF and WBO belts while 31-year-old Fury won only the WBC champion.

“It’s keen to say that [Joshua and Fury] are in agreement with respect to the monetary terms,” Joshua’s promoter, Hearn told Sky Sports News.

“We’re in a good place. It’s fair to mention that, in theory , both guys have agreed thereto fight. Two fights.”

Fury expressed his delight at the news during a social media post. The Manchester-born boxer said he would fight Joshua in 2021, but would first need to overcome the “hurdle within the road” Deontay Wilder, during a third meeting. Fury has a contract to fight the American heavyweight, Anthony Joshua, whom he collected the WBC title from in February.

Joshua, who took back his world titles in December, will have to face his compulsory rival, Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev, as soon as the game fully commences after the coronavirus shutdown.

Hearn added: “There are so many to beat. We are concerned over the venues and dates.

“We’ve been listening to [Fury’s management team] MTK, convincing them from Joshua’s side that each atom on the structure of the deal has received approval from our side as well as from Fury’s side, as well.”

‘Greatest sporting event in UK aside England’s World Cup win

Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, reported to BBC Radio 5 Live “The only way this wouldn’t take place is only if one of the blokes gets beat.

He added: “Every one wants it to happen. For me this may be the most important sporting event during this country with these fighters – four belts on the road , two Brits fighting for the world title, both champions. This is just mega. I think it’ll be the most important sporting event during this country since England won the world Cup in ’66.
