Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury was scheduled to take place in 2021 but complications have moved that to the likely scenario of 2022.
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.
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 a tough clash with Oleksandr Usyk.
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?
Many thought that fight would be the end of his boxing career, but Fury’s eagerness to continue inside the ring has landed him in a position to fight Wilder for a third time.
Should both Joshua and Fury come out on top in their respective bouts, we should then get the chance to see the biggest British boxing event in history.
What date is the fight?
After the pair were supposed to meet in August 2021, the fight has been postponed and we can now expect to see them fight in 2022.
This is a widely-anticipated encounter between two of the world’s greatest heavyweight boxers; it would be the perfect fit for the event to take place in the UK – especially with the possibility of fans in attendance.
