Negotiations are over and Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua have agreed to a two-fight deal to unify the heavyweight championship titles. ESPN reports. The final signature came on Saturday.
“We’d like to see a site deal confirmed in the next month,” said Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter. “The hard part is always getting everyone to put pen to paper. But this was a huge effort by all parties to get this out of line. You had rival promoters, rival networks, and rival fighters. “
“This is the biggest fight in boxing and one of the biggest sporting events in the world,” Hearn said. “It will be a great victory for a country that wants to show itself.”
The contract has a 50-50 split in the first game and 60-40 for the rematch. Both fights are scheduled for 2021 with target dates for the first in June / July and the rematch in November / December.
