Tyson Fury is set to go head-to-head against Anthony Joshua in an all-British heavyweight clash in 2021.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed to Sky Sports News that a two-fight deal has been agreed.
Dates and locations are yet to be agreed but we’re a huge step closer to seeing the two face off in the ring.
"The main positive news is that Joshua and Fury have agreed to a two-fight deal, in essence,” Hearn said.
"The most difficult part of any deal is the financial element. I believe we're in a great place where both guys have agreed to what that should be.”
Fury has since confirmed the agreement in a post on Instagram.
“Just after getting off the phone with (MTK partner) Daniel Kinahan, he’s just informed me that the biggest fight in British boxing history has just been agreed,” Fury said.
“Two-fight deal. Tyson Fury versus Anthony Joshua next year.”
Fury continued by adding that he’s got to complete his trilogy against Deontay Wilder before facing Joshua.
“One problem, I’ve just got to smash Deontay Wilder’s face right in in the next fight, and then we go into the Joshua fight next year,” he added.
“The Gypsy King versus AJ is on for next year but there’s a hurdle in the road called the Bronze Bomber. I will get on to him and knock him spark out, and then we get on to the big fight.”
It's the fight we've all wanted. And we're a huge step closer to seeing it happen.
