The biggest boxing match in the history of Great Britain should take place next year.
Negotiations to hold a heavyweight boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are at a very good stage. In fact, it can be said that an agreement has been reached today on most of what is currently possible to agree on, as both boxers have some more obligations before that eventual match.
Namely, the conditions for holding as many as two clashes in 2021 have been agreed upon. What exactly this is about was explained to the media by the head of Matchroom Boxing and Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn.
“We have made great progress. We still have a lot to do, but we are already looking at the dates and venues. But it can be said that we have agreed on the financial side. Both boxers have agreed to two matches and are now moving in the right direction. What I’m convinced is a blessing from both boxers,” Hearn said, revealing that Fury has two more commitments before that.
The first is a rematch against Deontay Wilder, and then a match against the chosen WBC challenger Dillian Whyte, who has been waiting for the opportunity for two years, and whose career is also taken care of by Hearn.
“The first match could happen next summer, it will definitely be 2021. There is one big-time period in which Whyte has to get his chance and that is extremely important to us. The hardest part of any negotiation is the financial one and I am happy that both of these boxers have already agreed on this issue. The contracts have not been signed because we still have a lot to do, but the structure of what we will sign is there and both sides agreed. We have a model that satisfies both parties. Currently, we can not imagine a bigger fight in boxing, it will definitely be the biggest match of our generation. Two very different guys, who are fighting differently and who have experienced different things in life,” Hearn revealed.
Tyson Fury boasted about this deal on Instagram. He revealed that the great news was passed on to him by one of the people representing him, Daniel Kinahan, but he also said he confirmed that it was a deal about matches for a next year and that he had a job to beat Wilder once again.
Whyte was not mentioned this time, that is, from his words, it could be concluded that he believes that the match against Joshua will follow immediately after the third clash against the “Bronze Bomber”.
