Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury could finally be announced tonight
Anthony Joshua’s Heavyweight unification clash against Tyson Fury could be
announced after Billy Joe Saunders ‘ super-middleweight title tilt against Canelo Alvarez,
with Eddie Hearn stating a deal is done.
And he has now gone one step further by hinting that we could have an
announcement about the first of a two-fight deal after the Canelo-Saunders clash
Speaking to Fight Hub TV, Hearn said: “A lot of people think we’re going to announce
on Saturday… we might. It won’t be far off that if we do [delay].
“Fury is on board, AJ is on board, they’ve all signed the site agreement, but it’s a lot of
money. Unfortunately I can’t just tell the lawyers to hurry up.
“But that fight is done, and you’ll get an announcement very soon.”
Fury will be at the fight supporting his close friend Saunders and it would be the ideal
time to officially announce the long-awaited Joshua showdown.
But Hearn did also reveal Joshua will not be in Texas with the 70,000 crowd on Saturday.
He added: “AJ isn’t coming, but it’s difficult because this fight is exclusive on DAZN
around the world, and the other [Joshua vs Fury] has three or four broadcasters who
would quite like to be involved in the announcement.
“It’ll be Saturday-ish.”
