Anthony Joshua has reached an agreement to fight rival Tyson Fury in a two-fight deal, according to promoter Eddie Hearn, MySportDab reports.
The highly-anticipated heavyweight fight might not be able to take place in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic but a specific date is yet to be agreed.
Anthony Joshua had his fight against Kubrat Pulev postponed, while Tyson Fury was meant to fight Deontay Wilder again.
Fury also has a mandatory challenge from Dillian Whyte for a fight by February 2021.
Anthony Joshua’s promoter Hearn told Sky Sports: “We have made great progress. There is still a lot to deal with. We are considering venues and dates.
“We still have the Dillian Whyte mandatory fight which is due before this.
“It’s fair to confirm that Joshua and Fury are in agreement about the financial terms of the fight. We’ve been in talks with Tyson Fury’s team MTK, giving them all assurances from Joshua’s side that all the details of the deal are approved from our side. And it is approved from Fury’s side, as well.
“We’re at a good place. It’s fair to say that both guys have agreed to the fight. Two fights actually.
“There’s still a lot to overcome over the next few weeks. We’re working in the right direction. I’m confident that both guys are happy for the fight to go ahead.
“The first fight could come up next summer. In 2021.
“The most important news is that Joshua and Fury have agreed to a two-fight deal.
“It will be the biggest fight ever in British boxing history. It can’t get bigger, and there can never be a more anticipated fight in our generation. Two kings, very different, who have experienced many things and have come back from alot.”
