ANTHONY JOSHUA has agreed to fight Tyson Fury on December 3rd in the UK, with the ‘Gypsy King’ yet to respond. Possibly the biggest fight in British boxing history seems to be edging closer and closer as the days pass by.
AJ Accepts Fury Clash
It seems like one of the biggest fights in the history of the sport of boxing could be on the cards before the end of the year.
Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua look set to do battle on December 3rd, with the former two-time heavyweight champion of the world accepting all of the terms Team Fury put to Team Joshua last week.
Here is what Joshua’s management team, 258MGT, tweeted this morning:
Due to the Queen’s passing, it was agreed to halt all communication.
We are awaiting a response.

It looks like the prospect of this fight happening is getting serious now. ‘AJ’ himself also retweeted the tweet from his management team, so it looks like everyone on Joshua’s side is ready to go and up for the fight.
The British promotor of Tyson Fury, Frank Warren, also replied to this tweet saying that the contract will be sent over soon and a deal can be struck between Joshua and Fury for this mammoth heavyweight showdown.
Contract will be with you very soon 🥊

It seems a date has been agreed, as well as a purse split for this mega-fight. All that’s left now to sort is the TV broadcasting rights and finding a venue. Once that is sorted, Fury vs Joshua could actually be on!
Will The Fight Actually Happen?
There is still a lot of speculation that the fight perhaps won’t actually happen for one reason or another.
Boxing fans are sick of hearing Tyson Fury coming out with different statements day after day, saying he is retired, before then calling out Joshua, with a WWE cameo performance thrown in there somewhere too.
However, there is something about these negotiations and the talking that seems deadly serious. Joshua has accepted everything thrown at him, now the ball is in Fury’s court as to whether the fight will go ahead.
Of course, the fight Fury wants is the Oleksandr Usyk fight, for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world, but a huge all-British showdown with Joshua is perhaps the next best thing for the heavyweight division before a unification next year, if the ‘Gypsy King’ does indeed overcome ‘AJ’ on December 3rd.
Who knows what will happen between now and the fight, but one thing is for sure, we’re closer than we have ever been for this Joshua vs Fury super-fight.
