There’s something for fight fans to look forward to after heavyweight world champions Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury put pen to paper.
The pair agreed on terms and signed contracts to face-off this year with all versions of the heavyweight championship belts on the line. Both camps are happy with the terms of the deal and are desperate to begin preparing for what will be a fight for the ages.
On paper, this looks like a 50/50 match-up. Joshua has a professional boxing record of 24 wins against one defeat, with 22 of his victories coming through knockout.
Let battle commence
Fury has 30 wins and one draw with 21 knockouts. Both men have the skill and power to hurt the other, and when the first bell sounds to signal the start of this battle, it’ll be exciting.
Heavyweight fights can change with a single punch, and this one will be no different. The Fury vs Joshua fight will hang on a knife-edge throughout.
AJ won his most recent outing with the ninth-round stoppage of Kubrat Pulev at Wembley in December. The Gypsy King was also in knockout form last time, getting rid of American Deontay Wilder in seven rounds, but that was over a year ago. The perfect warmup for Tyson Fury vs Joshua.
Traders have their say
The AJ vs Fury date may be open, but that certainly has not affected the current betting. Fury is the odds-on favourite to claim the win. That will encourage supporters of Joshua to back their man for victory at attractive odds.
The Fury vs Joshua fight outcome may be up for debate, but one thing’s for sure. The build-up to this one will be almost as entertaining as the contest itself, promising a few twists and turns along the way.
