Anthony Joshua will fight Tyson Fury on August 14, 2021

Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury is happening this year and there is plenty to get excited about.

When it comes to watching the biggest boxing events of the year, heavyweight stars are often looked at to provide the goods with the knockout potential being higher than the other weight categories. 

Both Joshua and Fury have embarked on different journeys over the past few years, but they will finally collide this year in one of the most highly-anticipated heavyweight boxing matches in history. 

After losing to Andy Ruiz Jr - the heavy underdog on the night - back in 2019, Joshua faced plentiful criticism for his performance and many started to question his ability as a boxer. 

However, Joshua, the man widely known as AJ, has since revived his career with victory in his rematch against Ruiz Jr and a devastating knockout win against Kubrat Pulev; next up is the toughest test of his career. 

Fury has endured battles of his own. The Gypsy King has since revitalised not only his boxing career, but his life. His return to boxing was a welcome one and victory by KO over Deontay Wilder in February of last year was the perfect fairytale ending...or was it?
