Date, country for Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury fight fixed

The day and country for the much awaited boxing showdown between Nigerian born, UK based Anthony Joshua and British Tyson Fury has been fixed.

According to show promoter, Eddie Hearn, when he was asked about the date for Joshua-Fury fight, he said, "August 7 or August 14. It's a very bad secret that the fight is happening in Saudi Arabia... We're very comfortable. Anthony is comfortable. He knows those people..."

He also stated that it has not been easy to secure a country and date that is comfortable with the two boxers but that everything is working out perfectly and progressing.

He further stated that August 14 might be a better option to avoid a clash with the Olympics which is slated to end six days earlier.

Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are heavyweight champions who hold all the four major titles in the division. They have been saying how eager they are to take on each other according to their social media posts.
