The venue for the all-British boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury for 2021 has now been confirmed, MySportDab reports.
Tyson Fury’s promoter Bob Arum has officially confirmed the venue.
There is much anticipation for the biggest fight in the history of British boxing.
However, the location for the fight is being kept a secret for now.
Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Dubai, Qatar, and China are all interested in hosting the fight which would cost millions.
Today, Bob Arum revealed that a location is now official, with both fighters set to earn a $100million (£73m) each.
‘It’s true that we now have a location,’ Arum told Barbershop Conversations.
‘We have a location and, the date is not yet confirmed, we haven’t decided on a final date.
‘It could in June because it would give more time for the coronavirus problem. By June, most people have taken the vaccine, so it’s possible.
‘After that we would do the fight, pay-per-view in the UK and pay-per-view in the United States.’
When asked on the money both boxers will earn as they head into the biggest fight of their boxing careers.
Arum said: ‘The Joshua vs Fury bout will earn each close to $100m. Each of them individually.
‘It is the biggest fight in UK history, nothing comes close. It is the biggest fight around the world that people want to see.’
Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn had previously sakd that the fight won’t happen in the UK because of the coronavirus crisis.
Earlier in January, the latest UK lockdown ruled out any chance of the fight happening on UK soil, and Singapore emerged as a possible destination.
