According to promoter Bob Arum, the heavyweight title fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury has been agreed to.
Joshua currently holds the WBO, WBA, IBF, and IBO heavyweight titles while Fury is the current WBC heavyweight champion.
After Joshua beat Kubrat Pulev in December, while Fury’s last fight was in February of 2020 where he smashed Deontay Wilder.
Fury’s promoter Arum told iFL TV that “all the points” have now been agreed.
“That’s what each side has said. Now, we are scrambling around to get the thing signed and everything.”
“But I can say clearly, based on my view on everything, that there are no more issues.”
No date or venue has been confirmed, but Fury said the pandemic and logistics were to blame for the delay.
“The way it is at the moment [with Covid-19], I don’t think it has got much to do with the fighters,” Fury told ESPN.
“It’s to do with the venue, date, place, site fees. It’s to do with everything but the fight itself.”
