Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury sign deal for two fights

Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have agreed to a two-fight contract in which they will fight for the undisputed world heavyweight championship.

For the past few months, the two British boxers have been in negotiations.

The blockbuster fight has finally been decided upon, with a date and location to be determined.

“All parties have now put pen to paper,” Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, told Sky Sports.

“Over the next few weeks, we’ll be working hard to confirm the location and date for boxing’s biggest fight.”

Last December, Joshua beat Bulgarian boxer Kubrat Pulev to retain his IBF, WBO, and WBA titles, though Fury retains the WBC crown.

This follows Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn’s assurance to fans that the match will take place.

‘Tyson Fury’s gonna get his wish. We are in, we are in, he told Boxing Social last week.

‘Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The undisputed king is going to be Anthony Joshua and this fight will happen.

‘This fight is on, trust me.’
