An agreement has reportedly been reached for Fury vs AJ

The all-British blockbuster bout between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury has now been agreed, according to Fury’s American promoter Bob Arum.

He says that all that is required is to sign the contracts, commenting that there are “no more issues”.

In June of last year, it was announced that both sides had agreed to a financial structure of the fight that “both parties were happy with”.

Speaking in an interview with iFL TV, Arum said: “As far as I’m concerned, I’ve been working on it, all the points have been agreed.

“Now we’re scrambling around to get things signed and everything, but I can say clearly based on my view of everything that there are no more issues.”

That statement will come as music to the ears of boxing fans around the world, who have been awaiting further clarification on the status of the fight for a number of months.

Back in January, Eddie Hearn said that talks were “going well“.

He also revealed that up to 10 locations were interested in staging the event – no official annoucement has been made at the time of writing about which one has won the race.

Tale of the tape

It will be Fury’s first bout since defeating Deontay Wilder last February. He stated last week that he was keen to fight twice this year – regardless of whether the Joshua fight went ahead or not.

Joshua last fought in December, defeating IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev. It was his first heavyweight title defence since his victory over Andy Ruiz Jr. the previous December.

Earlier this week, Joshua predicted that the fight would take place in June.

Speaking to JD Sports, he said: “June should be the date. Trust me.

“For the fans, for the people that have calling it on for many months.

“Shoutout to Fury and his team as well, hungry go getters, that’s what we are.

“UK stand up. I can’t wait. Undisputed.”
