JUST IN: Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury Unification Deal Signed
British heavyweight rivals, Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have signed a deal to unite their WBA, IBF, WBO and WBC belts in a two-legged affair.
Joshua, 31, holds the first three belts while 32-year-old Fury holds the last.
Negotiations for the mouth-watering encounter to unify the belts have dragged over many months between the camps of the two boxers, but a deal has now been reached, with time and date to be fixed.
Confirming the development, Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports, “All parties have now put pen to paper and we will be working hard over the next few weeks to confirm the site and date for the biggest fight in boxing.”
