Breaking: Anthony Joshua – Tyson Fury have agreed to site deal for summer fight

Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed moments ago that both sides have agreed on the site deal offer for the Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury fight, and that they’re finalizing it now with it slated to take place in the summer.

Hearn isn’t going into specifics now about the date and the location of the Joshua – Fury, but he says there be an official announcement coming soon revealing when and where the match will take place.

Hearn, who promotes Joshua, was highly pleased today in speaking about the fight having been agreed on. He’s been working on finding a location and a date for the Joshua-Fury fight for months, and it’s come at the perfect time.

Hearn confirms the fight will definitely take place in the summer, and the second one in December. It was never open for discussion for the first Joshua vs. Fury fight to be scheduled for later this year. The summer was the choice, and that’s what’s it’s going to be.

“What I will tell you is both sides have approved the site offer that they want to go with, and now we’re just finalizing the site deal and we’re in a great place,” said Hearn to Behind The Gloves on Joshua and Fury both having agreed to the site deal.

“I don’t think Deontay Wilder even wants the fight with Tyson Fury,” said Hearn when asked if Wilder’s mediation with the Gypsy King could get in the way of the Joshua-Fury clash.

“I think he [Wilder] just wants to cause trouble, and I think he’s looking for some money. It’s a shame because it’s a fight that boxing needs. It’s not going to be derailed by them, but it is quite annoying because you can’t ignore something like that. You have to go through the right channels and make sure it’s dealt with, and that’s what Bob Arum is doing.

“From our point of view, I don’t see that being an issue in the fight,” said Hearn.
