Fury vs Joshua Fight News
Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua hold all of the world heavyweight titles between them. They will meet in the biggest fight in British boxing history in June or July 2021. And you can follow the build-up every step of the way with all the very latest Fury vs Joshua news.
The pair have signed a two-fight deal and are expected to have an immediate rematch in November or December, following that summer showdown.
Fury and Joshua next fights
Thankfully – Fury and Joshua will meet each other next.
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 thankfully all obstacles are removed and contracts are signed.
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 shows Joshua fights in the UK) and BT Sport Box Office (airs 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 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.
