Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have agreed in principle meet in two blockbuster fights, according to Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn.

Hearn has been negotiating with Fury’s camp for several weeks and he said the terms were in place for the British world heavyweight champions go head to head.

No contracts have been signed yet, but Hearn expects WBA, IBF and WBO belt holder Joshua face WBC champion Fury to determine the undisputed king of the heavyweight scene in 2021.


“We’re making great progress. There is a lot overcome. We are looking at venues and dates,” Hearn told Sky Sports on Wednesday.

“We’re in a good place,” he added. “It’s fair say that, in principle, both guys have agreed to that fight. Two fights.

“(There’s) a lot overcome in the meantime. We’re moving in the right direction. I’m confident that both guys have given their blessings for the fight to go ahead.”

Hearn said the first bout could happen in the summer of 2021.

Joshua is due fight Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev next, while Fury has a rematch due with American Deontay Wilder.

Joshua, 30, is on course to face Pulev despite injuring his knee during a recent training run.

He was seen with a knee brace and crutches during a Black Lives Matter protest at the weekend.
