Anthony Joshua set to battle Tyson Fury after reaching 2 fight deal

Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has affirmed that his client has reached an agreement to challenge countryman Tyson Fury in the much-awaited unification fight.

Both Britons are in possession of all the belt in their category, with the Gypsy King recently laying his hands on the silverware.

The 31-year-old demolished Deontay Wilder in their second meeting earlier this year to be crowned the new WBC champion.

However, Sky Sports report that the British rivals have finalised a two-fight deal initial term, says Eddie Hearn.

“We’re making great progress,” Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn exclusively told Sky Sports News.

 

“There is still a lot to overcome. We are looking at venues and dates.

“We have the Dillian Whyte mandatory which is due before this fight. “It’s fair to say [Joshua and Fury] are in agreement regarding the financial terms of the fight.

“We’ve been talking to [Fury’s management team] MTK, giving them the assurances from Joshua’s side that all the details on the structure of the deal is approved from our side. And it is from Fury’s side, as well.

“We’re in a good place. It’s fair to say that, in principle, both guys have agreed to that fight. Two fights.

“[There’s] a lot to overcome in the meantime. We’re moving in the right direction. I’m confident that both guys have given their blessing for the fight to go ahead.

“There is a big period of time where Whyte should get his shot at the title. That’s important to us.

“The main positive news is that Joshua and Fury have agreed to a two-fight deal, in essence.

“The most difficult part of any deal is the financial element. I believe we’re in a great place where both guys have agreed to what that should be.

“We have not signed contracts because there are still things to be worked out.

“We’re pushing towards a place where they can be drafted, for 2021.

Actress Scarlett Johansson Sues Disney Over ‘Black Widow’ Streaming Release

Hollywood actress, Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney over its decision to release superhero film Black Widow, alleging a breach of contract which cost the actress millions of dollars.

The film was originally due for a big-screen release last year, but was delayed multiple times due to the Covid-19 pandemic and was eventually released this month simultaneously in theaters and on Disney.

“This will surely not be the last case where Hollywood talent stands up to Disney and make it clear that the company has a legal obligation to honor its contracts,” said John Berlinski, Johansson’s attorney.

According to reports, Johansson’s lawyers tried to renegotiate the actress’s contract with Disney in 2019 after first expressing concerns about the multi-platform release.

‘Black Widow’ opened strongly in the United States with $80 million but reportedly dropped by 67% in its second week. Disney announced that it made $60 million via rentals in its opening weekend at $30 per rental.

Marilyn Manson Files to Dismiss ‘Game of Thrones‘ Star‘s Sex Assault Case Against Him

A few months after British actress Esme Bianco filed a complaint of sexual assault against Marilyn Manson, the singer has filed to dismiss the case.

In February this year, the Game of Thrones actress sued the singer, accusing him of sexual assault and battery. She alleged that Manson repeatedly used drugs, force and threats to coerce her into sexual acts.

In court papers filed in Los Angeles, Manson’s lawyers said there is not a shred of evidence to support the claims, while also arguing that Bianco’s case has been filed too late to be considered under California law.

Bianco is one of four women to sue the singer, alongside Manson’s former personal assistant Ashley Walters, model Ashley Morgan Smithline, and a woman who has chosen to remain anonymous. Many of their allegations are of a similar nature, including claims of sexual and physical abuse.

In total, more than a dozen women have made public allegations against the musician, including his ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood.
