Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury 'very close' with fight contracts presented TODAY with venue decided this week amid talks

ANTHONY JOSHUA and Tyson Fury are very close to agreeing their huge fight with the contracts being presented today.

The heavyweight superstars are deciding on the venue for their world heavyweight title unification showdown.

Promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports: "People are excited, people know we're on the verge now.

"Fingers crossed, it won't be long… The whole world will stop to watch this fight. It will never get any bigger than this in our generation. We are on the verge.

"Joshua doesn't talk much about fights – but he talks when it's close. You can feel the excitement building.

"We are in a great place with several offers on the table. I'm quietly confident.

"It was nice to see Fury post with enthusiasm because he feels that we are close."

Hearn has ruled out the possibility of delaying the fight until the end of the year.

The first of two fights between the British superstars is set to take place this summer with a July bout most likely.


A decision on the venue is the major issue to be resolved with Saudi Arabia one of the front runners to stage the hugely-anticipated showdown.

Wembley is an option but the stumbling block remains enabling a full stadium crowd to attend due to Covid-19 restrictions.

And with the contracts presented this weekend it seems likely an official announcement could be made within the coming weeks.
