[Sport] Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury ‘approve’ offer for undisputed world title fight


Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn, has said Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have “approved” a site offer for their undisputed world heavyweight title fight this summer.

The two Britons have been considering “multiple” offers to stage their blockbuster battle.

Hearn did not reveal a date and venue, but confirmed that unified champion Joshua and the WBC title holder Fury, had reached an agreement over a location.

Hearn told Behind The Gloves: “Both sides have approved the site offer that they want to go with, and now we’re just finalising the site deal and we’re in a great place.

“We just had five or 10 minutes together and it was good, because I don’t represent Tyson Fury, so I don’t know what is in his mind. What he basically cemented in my mind was, this is the only fight he wants, and I know that’s the same with AJ.

“It has been agreed by both sides, the option that we will take, and you’ll get the date very soon and the official announcement.”
