Anthony Joshua And Tyson Fury Signs A Lucrative Two-Fight Deal.

Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury has finally signed a lucrative two-fight deal on Monday, to face off for the undisputed heavyweight title, which brings to an end a lengthy negotiations in recent months.

The fight which is to be worth £200million, has largely been anticipated and described as the biggest bout in recent history, and has  now been set to take place in late June, or early July with the venue yet to be known (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, the US and Australia, emerging top favorites to stage the fight)

Due to restrictions in the UK caused by the pandemic, the first fight have long since been ruled out, but the rematch may still be likely held there.   

Unified champion Anthony Joshua would put his WBA, IBF and WBO belts on the line against the unbeaten WBC champion Tyson Fury in the undisputed world title fight.

CloudNine Sports understands that the showdown would eclipse that of Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao, which was billed as the Fight of the Century or the Battle for Greatness held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas in May 2015.

"All parties have now put pen to paper and we will be working hard over the next few weeks to confirm the site and date for the biggest fight in boxing. We have had a lot of offers and now we will go over the details and see what works the best for this historic fight"...Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports

The 31-year-old Nigerian-British boxer recently said in an interview, that he is relishing a massive showdown with Fury. 

"Any option. Home turf, Middle East, my back garden, your back garden. I don't mind where it is... Said Joshua.

"I'm just ready to fight. I want that belt. I want to compete with Fury so all options are open to me."

"[The pandemic] is getting close to things being normal. We're working on a date for around June," he said.

"So if Tyson is serious, which I think he is, he'll know where to come and find the boss"

"I'm ready. I'm really looking forward to competition - all I want to do is fight, fight, fight!"

Fury '32' on the other hand, aimed a fresh jibes at Joshua last week insisting he could 'drink 14 PINTS and still give AJ a hiding' ahead of proposed £200m mega-fight.

"I'm looking for a challenge, I've been looking, searching the world for 13 years as a professional to find a man who can better me. I just can't find him"... Fury told Talksport.

"I'm not training anymore. Until I get a date, then I go back into training camp, but at the minute I'm just chilling out, being a man of leisure in lockdown."
