Fury vs Joshua Fight News
Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua hold all of the world heavyweight titles between them. They now appear to be on course for the biggest fight in British boxing history in the summer of 2021. And you can follow every step of the way with all the very latest Fury vs Joshua news.
Before they can meet inside the ropes, these two boxing behemoths both have other business to take care of.
Fury and Joshua next fights
Fury (30-0-1) had been due to face Deontay Wilder (42-1-1) in their trilogy fight later this year. But that has now been put on the back burner.
Instead ‘The Gypsy King’ is now seeking an opponent for a UK homecoming bout at London’s Royal Albert Hall on December 5.
AJ meanwhile has IBF mandatory contender Kubrat Pulev (28-1) to deal with later this year, on December 12 at the O2 Arena (live on Sky Sports Box Office and DAZN). He also may have to take on the WBO mandatory contender – former cruiserweight king Oleksandr Usyk (17-0) – before any unification match can become reality.
Usyk has a stiff test to contend with an October 31 date against seasoned veteran Dereck Chisora (32-9).
So while Fury and Joshua have agreed in principle the financial structure for a two-fight deal, there is some way to go before the date, time, venue and TV details can become reality.
And we haven’t even mentioned the up-and-coming prospects like unbeaten Londoners Daniel Dubois (15-0) and Joe Joyce (11-0).
Fury vs Joshua TV details
The battle to show the fight on TV and live stream is also a fascinating one. Sky Sports Box Office (currently show Joshua fights in the UK) and BT Sport Box Office (air Fury fights in the UK) currently hold all the aces. Streaming platform DAZN meanwhile is about to roll out its service in more than 200 countries globally.
The venue has already been the subject of much controversy meanwhile. The possibility the fight may not happen in the UK appears very real. Joshua’s last bout – that rematch defeat of Andy Ruiz Jr – took place in Saudi Arabia. There is speculation Fury vs Joshua could be staged there also.
Fury vs Joshua odds
Fury meanwhile is the current betting favourite at 1/2 with Joshua around a 6/4 chance. But boxing odds have been overturned before…
The next few months promise to be absolutely fascinating as the picture becomes clearer and obstacles are removed to what would be a massive confrontation between two British heavyweight world champions.
