Former World Champion Not Convinced Joshua vs. Fury Happens Before November
One former world champion believes we won’t be seeing Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury until at least November.
Joshua and Fury are expected to collide at some point this year. This would be an undisputed heavyweight title fight. The holdup has been in securing a location that is guaranteed to bring in $100 million in revenue. Eddie Hearn recently told Michelle Phelps that both Joshua and Fury have agreed on a location.
Former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion David Haye told Sky Sports that he doesn’t see Joshua vs. Fury happening until November.
“I’ll be surprised if it happens before November. If it does happen before November, fantastic.
“Knowing boxing like I do, whatever offer they receive it’s going to need to be ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous to get it over the line, and if it does get over the line, God bless both of them. They deserve every penny they earn because they’ve both put it on the line. They’ve both sacrificed, they’ve both become heavyweight world champion in their own right.
“They’ve both taken their licks. Fury got off the canvas against Wilder, AJ got over his loss against Andy Ruiz Jr and came back with a victory, so they both deserve the richest prize in the sport. They both deserve to be in this big mega event. May the best man win when it finally does happen.”
