Fury, Usyk, Wilder And Joshua Could Fight In A $400 Million Deal
Eddie Hearn has revealed that there are plans for a $400 million mega fight featuring Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder in one night.
Rumours had initially emerged following the breakdown in talks between Fury and Usyk, despite the latter agreeing to a 70-30 split.
‼️ Eddie Hearn has declared that talks are positive with the Saudis to make Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder on same night as Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk in December: “We’re up for it. Concrete offers coming this week. AJ said, ‘100% I’m in to fight Wilder.’” [@Boxing_Social] pic.twitter.com/9vbgvc59aD

Furthermore, following Joshua’s public statement on social media that he wanted to face Wilder, the expectations for the two bouts only increased.
And now Eddie Hearn has confirmed that there are serious efforts to make it happen.
“The situation is that Saudi Arabia would like to do Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder on the same night. I went out there two weeks ago, and they’re deadly serious.
“I’ve had two big fights with them before, so I know they deliver. As I understand it, they’ve been doing their own negotiations with Wilder, which have gone very well,” Hearn
