Sports promoter and Managing Director of Matchroom Sport, Eddie Hearn has confirmed that the long awaited heavyweight bout between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury will take place in Saudi Arabia on August 7 or 14, 2021.
Britain’s rival champions traded heated messages on social media as talks continued over their undisputed world heavyweight title fight this summer.
Hearn who is Joshua’s promoter admits that Joshua is growing impatient with Fury, who is yet to agree the remaining terms, but the Matchroom boss remains confident the fight will be announced this week.
Fury has been inactive since he stopped Deontay Wilder to claim the WBC title last February, while Joshua is also eager to return to action after defending his WBA, IBF and WBO belts with a knockout win over Kubrat Pulev in December.
