The bout for the title of the absolute heavyweight champion of the world will become the first one since 1999. The fight is to take place in London.
"I got 99 percent of the job done, and now I just hope it's not in vain. I'm used to being blamed for everything. No problem. But I'm glad when I can easily take a look at myself in the mirror and say: "Eduardo, you did everything you could". My forecast? I'll tell you what, if there is no bad news about the fight by the middle of the week, it all goes according to plan", Hearn said.
Anthony Joshua already commented on the news from his promoter. "Great news! We received the official contract for the fight for the title of the absolute heavyweight champion of the world. And with God's help, I'll prevail. Now there is no avoiding the fight. I'm coming!", Joshua said.
Currently, Joshua owns IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO belts of heavyweight champion of the world. Fury holds the remaining WBC title.
