Multiple reports suggesting August 14th is the likely date for Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia, with fight set to be officially announced this coming week. That date would be after the conclusion of the Olympics and so allow Rob McCracken to be present for both.— Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) May 9, 2021
