Tyson Fury hints Anthony Joshua showdown will be in UK as he shares SunSport tale of the tape in cryptic Insta post

TYSON FURY has dropped a huge hint that he will fight Anthony Joshua in the UK.

Both fighters hope to sign their £200million fight deal within the next month - even without a confirmed venue.

But the Gypsy King has fuelled speculation that the Battle of Britain could take place on home soil.

WBC champion Fury shared SunSport's tale of the tape to Instagram as he called AJ a 'big stiff idiot'.

Alongside it, he wrote: "Coming soon somewhere near you. 2021 #BIGSTIFFIDIOT #BIGDOSSER."

Eddie Hearn has suggested that the location could be final detail of the deal to be decided.

But the promoter previously hinted that the fight is not expected to take place in the UK.

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

Hearn 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]."


Fury has predicted that he will beat Joshua inside 'one or two rounds' when they finally meet in the ring.

He told Sky Sports: "I don't think he is as good as people talk him up to be.

"And I don't believe he believes it himself, I think he has a confidence issue after two shaky performances and boxing is all about form.

"On his last two fights he is not in form and, on my last two, I am.

"Momentum is with me and, because of that, I believe I take him out early, very early, maybe inside one or two rounds."

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