Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua Fight
Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua are now heading for the biggest fight in British boxing history after they ‘agreed in principle’ to financial terms on a two-fight deal for 2021. Fury holds the WBC heavyweight title and Joshua is the IBF, WBA and WBO gold king. A fight between the two would smash all domestic box-office records and be front-page news in Great Britain for months beforehand.
Fury is the outspoken larger-than-life ‘Gypsy King’ from northern England who stunned Wladimir Klitschko to become world champion in 2015 before depression and massive weight gain almost wrecked his career. His road to redemption has been an incredible story – crowned by a devastating destruction of the hitherto unbeaten Deontay Wilder to reclaim the WBC title in February 2020.
Joshua meanwhile is the powerful Londoner who ruled at amateur level to claim super-heavyweight gold at the 2012 Olympics in his home city, before blasting his way through the professional ranks. Just like Fury, AJ enjoyed a career-defining night against Wladimir Klitschko, beating the valiant Ukrainian great in an epic Wembley showdown to add the WBA title to his IBF crown.
Joshua suffered a shock first pro defeat by late stand-in Andy Ruiz Jr at Madison Square Garden in New York in June 2019, but quickly avenged that seventh-round TKO loss by regaining his belts with a comprehensive points victory in Saudi Arabia in December 2019.
Now the scene appears to be set for Fury and Joshua to finally meet inside the ring if the biggest fight in British boxing history can be made. It is not just the fighters inside the ring who make this dream match such a tantalising prospect. Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, Fury’s father John and half-brother Tommy (of Love Island fame) provide a colourful supporting cast to what should be an absolute blockbuster.
Before the all-British blockbuster can happen, Fury must safely come through a third meeting with the ever-dangerous Wilder, while Joshua must overcome his mandatory challenger – Bulgarian veteran Kubrat Pulev.
