The long-awaited Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua fight has been confirmed and will take place on August 14th in Saudi Arabia.
While promoters are yet to officially confirm, due to a legal technicality from Deontay Wilder being next to fight Anthony Joshua, Wilder is expected to be offered a payment to step aside in order for the fight to commence.
There has been years of trash talk and fight rumours between Fury and Joshua for years.
Fury and AJ are both two-time British World Heavyweight champions.
Fury remains undefeated (30-0-1) and is the current WBC champion. Joshua (24-1-0) holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts.
While AJ has fewer matches and a loss on his boxing record, Joshua has a 91.6% knockout ratio and managed to beat his only loss, Andy Ruiz, in a rematch in 2019.
