The Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua fight location has finally been selected, promoter Bob Arum has revealed.
Fury’s co-promoter declined to reveal the specific country at this stage, but did confirm a sizeable step has now been taken towards finalising the biggest fight in British boxing history.
Arum promotes Tyson Fury in the US and Frank Warren is his UK promoter
The coronavirus pandemic has put paid to any lingering possibility of the bout happening at home, but in reality an overseas location was always the plan.
AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn previously named Singapore, Dubai, Qatar, America and China as possible options, though Saudi Arabia was marked as the favourite to host Joshua vs Fury.
An early evening US time would suggest a prime time evening start in the UK – identical to the situation when AJ fought Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.
Regarding the financials, Arum added: “The Joshua vs Fury fight will earn each of the guys close to $100million. Each of the guys.
“It is the biggest fight in history in the UK, not even close.
“Around the world it is the biggest fight that people wanna see.”
