Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury’s Historic Fight Now Slated For August 14
After much discussions and negotiations over the location and date for the fight between Nigerian-British professional boxer, Anthony Joshua and British professional boxer, Tyson Fury, the fight is now slated for August 14 and will be hosted by Saudi Arabia.
Fury, while confirming the fight to his followers, wrote:
“Got some massive news for you all.
“I’ve just got off the phone from Prince Khalid of Saudi Arabia, he’s told me this fight is 100 per cent on. August 14, in the summertime.
“And I cannot wait, repeat: cannot wait to smash Anthony Joshua on the biggest stage of all time.
“This is going to be the biggest sporting event ever to grace the planet earth. Do not miss it. All eyes on us.
“Peace out, God bless, see you all in Saudi! Yes, get in!”
Eddie Hearn said earlier in the week: “You will get a different AJ in this build-up.
“He’s excited because he’s never really, apart from the Dillian Whyte fight, been in a trash-talk environment. He will enjoy it. AJ has got the bit between his teeth, goading him a bit. I’m sure these two DM each other, goading each other.
“I get DMs from Fury – sometimes pleasant, sometimes unpleasant!”
Before adding: “AJ will go to war with Fury.
“He has plans to absolutely demolish him. That’s what I believe he will do. In the meantime we will go through the build-up, which will be a lot of fun, before the biggest event of 2021.”
Saudi officials are hoping to build an outdoor stadium in Jeddah for the fight.
Boxing fans can finally rejoice now that the announcement has been made for one of the biggest fights in boxing history as many are already anticipating and predicting how the fight will go down.
