Before they can meet inside the ropes, these two boxing behemoths both have other business to take care of.
Fury and Joshua next fights
According to Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, their next fight will be against each other – the big one we all want to see.
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. For now at least.
AJ meanwhile looked like he would have to defend his belts against WBO mandatory contender Oleksandr Usyk after performing a demolition job on IBF mandatory Kubrat Pulev.
But Hearn says instead that Fury vs Joshua will be next, with the bout likely to take place in May or June. He says the fight is “verbally agreed” and contracts are being drafted.
There is still a little way to go before the date, time, venue and TV details can become reality.
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 around 4/7 with Joshua around a 11/8 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.
