Frank Warren confirms target date for Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury super fight


Frank Warren has said he is confident that the heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will happen this year in either May or June. However, Warren has also warned that the bout may not take place in the UK, despite the pair both being British. Fury, who holds the WBC belt could face his compatriot Joshua, who holds IBF, WBA and WBO titles. Warren spoke in an interview on talkSPORT about the fight, saying: “Everybody wants the fight between Tyson and Anthony Joshua. That is what the agenda of everybody who is concerned is and we will do all we have got between us all to make sure it happens”. Warren continued, highlighting that this is the fight everyone wants: “That’s the fight everybody wants to see and, whatever the result of the arbitration, if and when we get some result we will deal with it as and when. I honestly believe the next fight will be the two guys, nobody can predict anything at the moment, can they?”. In the interview, Warren talked about where will host the heavyweight clash, as UK venues are not looking possible. “So it is wherever the best offer comes from; there have been a few offers made, I’m not going to go into where they have come from, but everybody will collectively look at them and collectively the decisions will be made. But the fight, we are hoping to get it on and, if we are being realistic, it will be some time in May or June. “I hope that in the next few weeks it is over the line. We are supposed to be getting some sort of draft agreement this week and it will be a two-fight deal.”
