Lovers of Boxing now have something to look forward to with the final confirmation of Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury’s heavyweight showdown after months of negotiations.
The Joshua Fury fight is considered one of the biggest fights in boxing history. Joshua, 31, holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts, while Fury, 32, is WBC champion. The winner will become the undisputed champion.
Fury himself confirmed through his Twitter handle, @Tyson_Fury that the fight will hold by August 14th in Saudi Arabia.
Fury has made his prediction for how the fight will go, he told his followers, “Got some massive news for you all.
“I’ve just got off the phone from Prince Khalid of Saudi Arabia, he’s told me this fight is 100 per cent on. August 14, in the summertime.
“And I cannot wait, repeat: cannot wait to smash Anthony Joshua on the biggest stage of all time.
“This is going to be the biggest sporting event ever to grace the planet earth. Do not miss it. All eyes on us.
“Peace out, God bless, see you all in Saudi! Yes, get in!”
On his part, Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, said earlier in the week, “You will get a different AJ in this build-up.
“He’s excited because he’s never really, apart from the Dillian Whyte fight, been in a trash-talk environment. He will enjoy it. AJ has got the bit between his teeth, goading him a bit. I’m sure these two DM each other, goading each other.
“He has plans to absolutely demolish him. That’s what I believe he will do. In the meantime we will go through the build-up, which will be a lot of fun, before the biggest event of 2021,” he concluded.
