Joshua Versus Fury: UK’s Wembley Is A Possible Venue – Eddie Hearn

(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Eddie Hearn has once again raised hopes of the prospect of Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury’s world heavyweight unification bout taking place at Wembley. 

It was confirmed earlier this month that the pair have finally signed terms on a two-fight deal worth a reported £200million, with the first face-off due to take place in either June or July of this year. 

Billed as the biggest fight in British boxing history, the venue for the first event has been a hot topic, with locations such as the Middle East and the United States as possible destinations.

In fact, due to the ongoing pandemic and the lack of clarity on the rules behind fans being allowed back in, the UK was rated at a whopping 16/1 by bookies as the setting for fight number one. 

However, Hearn has insisted that the national stadium in London remains on the agenda, and would be the venue of choice – should they be allowed to fill it to capacity. 

‘All things being equal, we wouldn’t even be having conversations with anywhere else in the world to be honest with you, we’d just be straight into Wembley,’ he said on talkSPORT.

‘Obviously it is the biggest fight of our generation. It’s the moment of both fighters’ careers.
