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.
