Anthony Joshua & Tyson Fury Agree Terms On Heavyweight Unification Fight

3 March 2021

It looks like an Anthony Joshua Vs Tyson Fury fight is on the way as the pair have agreed to terms on a heavyweight unification bout, according to Fury’s promoter Bob Arum.

Speaking to iFL TV on where negotiations are at on the bout between the two boxers, Arum said: “All the points have been agreed to, that’s what both sides have said.

“Now we’re scrambling around to get things signed but I can say that clearly, based on my view, there are no more issues.”

He added: “But I can say clearly, based on my view on everything, that there are no more issues.”

Due to take place in June or July this year, the £200million fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury is expected to take place in the Middle East following Joshua’s rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia in 2019.

The pair agreed financial terms last year and will each earn 50% of the purse, predicted to be £100 million each.

The winner will then earn 60% of the purse for a rematch which could take place in Cardiff towards the end of this year.

Anthony Joshua’s WBO, WBA and IBF belts will be on the line when they fight this summer, as well as Fury’s WBC strap.
