Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury fight location CONFIRMED with boxers to earn almost £73million each, claims Bob Arum

A LOCATION for Anthony Joshua's showdown with Tyson Fury has been confirmed.

That is according to promoter Bob Arum, who claimed both fighters will earn around £73million each.

The fight is likely to place at prime time in the UK - but a date is yet to be decided.

Arum told Barbershop Conversations: “We have a location, that’s true.

“We have a location and, as far as the date is confirmed, we haven’t zeroed in on a date.

“It could be as late as June because it would give more time to solve the coronavirus problem. By June, most people will be vaccinated, so it’s possible.

“And then we would do the fight, pay-per-view in the UK and pay-per-view early evening in the United States.”

Arum then revealed that both fighters are set to rake in around £100m (£73m) each from the fight.

He said: “The Joshua vs Fury fight will earn each of the guys close to $100million. Each of the guys.

“It is the biggest fight in history in the UK, not even close.


“Around the world it is the biggest fight that people wanna see.”

Negotiations over the 'Battle of Britain' are understood to have progressed smoothly

Arum, 89, expects the deal to be signed and agreed within the next fortnight.

AJ's promoter Eddie Hearn has already revealed the fight is not expected to take place in the UK.

Hearn identified Saudi Arabia as an option as they could make twice the money.

He told iFL TV: “The government here don’t invest in bringing mega-events to the UK - they don’t necessarily need to.

“They’ve got a Premier League football game every weekend, selling 50,000-80,000 [tickets]."

Joshua beat Kubrat Pulev in December to set up the historic undisputed title decider with Fury.

Fury, 30-0-1, has predicted he will beat the Watford-born bruiser inside two rounds.

But Joshua, 24-1, is on a mission to take the 32-year-old's head clean off his shoulders.
