Joshua to face Fury in July, promoter reveals


Eddie Hearn has insisted that the highly-anticipated Anthony Joshua versus Tyson Fury showdown will hold in July.

The two superstars have agreed and penned a £200m two-fight deal to unify the heavyweight division.

The Sun reports that Fury’s father, John, recently cast doubt on the fight by saying an agreement means nothing without a date and venue.

The Middle East was expected to host the bout but Hearn admitted a full Wembley is an alternative if lockdown restrictions are lifted in time.

Reacting to John’s remarks, Hearn told the AK & Barak show that, “What have they signed? Unless you’re trying to talk yourself out of this fight, all I’m doing is grafting my nuts off to try and make this fight.

“I’m traveling all around the world this week trying to get it done. It’s not a great time at the moment.

“AJ is in 100% full camp. In his mind, this is the only fight that is going to happen next. Whoever comes up with the best opportunity, it’s on.

“I hope that will come from the other side as well because everybody signed a contract and they have to approve the site and the deal as far as the site offers.”
