The much-awaited heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua seems to materialize in 2021. However, contractual turmoils can still hamper the matchup. While we are yet to receive an official confirmation on the fight, boxing fans continue to worry about it’s happening.
That said, Frank Warren has delivered an update. The Queens berry promotions CEO has connected with Seconds Out to shed light on the current scenario. The 68-year-old appears optimistic about the fight and hopes everyone to come under terms.
“The situation is that negotiations are going the right way and hopefully whatever some sort of something on paper that we all can look at and hopefully agree,” said Warren.
The Queensberry promoter continued, “I just want to get the fight on. It’s a fight you know I really fancy Tyson to win and we just want to get it as soon as possible and there’s no resistance from Arum. He is just making sure that everybody gets their contractual commitments agreed.”
Although Tyson Fury still has a relevant opponent in former WBC champion Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua remains as his most preferred opponent.
Following the TKO win over Kubrat Pulev, Joshua is once again the looming heavyweight world champion. Meanwhile, Tyson Fury is the undisputed WBC titleholder. So, it’s time to determine the better pugilist between them.
It will be the Ultimate British heavyweight showdown, a fight that is being billed as the greatest heavyweight clashes of all time. Bob Arum has already tagged it as the fight, similar to Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier in 1971.
Apart from the legacy and titles, it will be a lucrative fight for both the heavyweight champions. A fight between Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua can break the PPV records, making it an enormous success. So, it makes sense to stage the fight, especially when the two share a long history. Although Fury appears as the ‘favorite’, Joshua can shock the world on the fight night.
