The pair have agreed in principle the financial structure for a two-fight deal in the boxing ring starting next year. But now fight fans will be able to imagine how they might fare in the Octagon.
Both Fury (30-0-1) and Joshua (23-1) are clearly delighted to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Mike Tyson and Bruce Lee in being included in the game.
Joshua said: “Fighting is what I have dedicated myself to. No matter the stage or opponent, I’ll always back myself.My character in UFC 4 will be no different. I’m looking forward to picking up the controller and dominating UFC 4.”
