Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury fought each other on social media after their superfight seemingly fell through. For months now, fans have been waiting for the official announcement of Joshua vs. Fury, a fight that has been preparing for years. It will be the largest heavyweight boxing match of this generation and the largest ever in the United Kingdom.
Unfortunately, after the arbitral tribunal ruled that Fury should fight Deontay Wilder in the third fight, Joshua and Fury’s plans to confront in August seem to have fallen apart.
While the Wilder plans may now throw a spanner into the works, the overwhelming hope – and expectation – is that these two men will finally clash at some point in the future. It may not be this year but so long as Fury can get past Wilder, it’s a fight that’s just too big not to make.
Some fans hope this delay will now mean the fight won’t take place in Saudi Arabia but will go down at Wembley Stadium in London, England. That’s an optimistic point of view considering the money that’s going to be involved here but when we look back on this saga in 20 years time, the majority will want to say they saw it happen on British soil.
As for Wilder, it’ll be interesting to see whether he pushes for this fight to happen or if he instead opts to go down the route of asking for money to step aside.
