They had been all set to meet in the biggest fight in British boxing history on August 14, 2021.

Fury and Joshua next fights

lost his world titles to Ukrainian star Oleksandr Usyk via a unanimous decision at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25, 2021.
Fury (30-0-1) will now meet Wilder (42-1-1) for a third time in Las Vegas on Saturday October 9. Fury vs Joshua TV details
The battle to show the fight on TV and live stream would be a fascinating one.

DAZN meanwhile is also expected to be a major player.
The interesting wrinkle here is that Joshua’s current UK broadcast deal with Sky has only one fight left – and that now won’t be against Fury.
Expect a massive bidding war for his signature with at least one Fury fight likely to be part of his next pact.
