Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have agreed to two bouts in 2021, Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s agent said on Wednesday.
Joshua’s promoter while speaking with Sky Sports said, “It’s fair to say (Joshua and Fury) are in agreement regarding the financial terms of the fight.
“We’ve been talking to (Fury’s management team) MTK, giving them the assurances from Joshua’s side that all the details on the structure of the deal is approved from our side. And it is from Fury’s side, as well.”
Fury is the unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion and Joshua holds the IBF, WBA and WBO titles.
The first bout of the fight is scheduled to hold in the summer of 2020.
Confirming the development, Fury, in a video, posted on his verified Twitter handle, vowed to beat Deontay Wilder, for the second time, before smashing Joshua.
Before the fight, Fury will Battle Wilder in a rematch, while Joshua will fight Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, a mandatory challenger.
