BOXING fans all over the globe are anticipating on the two Brits to take on each other for a long time. The schedule for Tyson Fury’s epic Battle of Britain heavyweight clashes against Anthony Joshua has been revealed.
At the start of coronavirus lockdown, WBC heavyweight champ Fury announced that he had ‘agreed’ two fights with WBA, WBO and IBF king Joshua.
Tyson Fury will have a homecoming fight in December – then concentrate on sorting the Joshua fights
While, Anthony Joshua must first get rid of Kubrat Pulev in December.
Provided they both get through their respective title defences, all the belts could be on the line in 2021.
AJ’s promoter, Eddie Hearn has already worked out when the mouth-watering fights will happen – and wants both to take place in the UK.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the Matchroom boss said: “You break them up into probably May, June, and then November, December (for the rematch). April, May, June, and then November, December.
“I think it’s about where and of course they’re two British heavyweight world champions, and if one of those fights at least didn’t take place in the UK it would be a shame.
“I know ultimately people think it’s my decision but it’s really not.
“We will take all the offers that will come from all around the world and present them to both teams and both fighters.
“Ultimately, normally, the biggest offer wins.”
Both boxers have fought in the US – Joshua suffering one of the sport’s biggest shocks when he lost all his belts to Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019.
