Tyson Fury’s career had to hit pause during the pandemic, but he’s getting ready to get the gloves back on.

According to ESPN, the Lineal and WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury will fight unified champ Anthony Joshua. This is going to be a two-fight deal.

Eddie Hearn said that they would like to get a deal confirmed in the next month to determine where the fight will take place. There are a few options at this point, and the hard part is always going to be in closing those deals.

“We’d like to get a site deal confirmed in the next month. The hard part is always getting everybody to put pen to paper. But this was a major effort from all parties to get this over the line. You had rival promoters, rival networks and rival fighters.”


The when and where still needs to be figured out, but Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua are reportedly slated to battle. If they can make this fight happen then Fury vs Joshua would crown the first undisputed heavyweight boxing champion since Lennox Lewis did it 20 years ago.
