Eddie Hearn has said a exact date and venue for boxing’s most exceptionally expected battle between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury will be affirmed before the following week’s over.
The Matchroom promoter didn’t part with something over the top yet unhesitatingly declared on Friday: “I think end of next week it will be done.”
Fury, the WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight champion, has not battled since his prevailing triumph over Deontay Wilder in February 2020.
According to talkSPORT, ,Hearn affirmed a month ago that agreements had been signed for a two-fight arrangement to occur this year.
Yet, there has been no confirmation on either the date or venue for the primary gathering and it appears to be like Saudi Arabia is the frontrunner.
However, the 41-year-old has excited boxing fans with his latest comments as the biggest fight in boxing draws ever closer.
“The world tour is going well but I’m not answering any questions on that and I won’t tell you where I’ve been,” he said.
“But talks have progressed extremely well and we’re closing in on securing the venue and there will be an announcement in due course. We’re at the stage where it’s probably best not to say much more than that.”
