By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Eddie Hearn has confirmed that Anthony Joshua’s training camp for his fight with Tyson Fury is in full swing.
It has been revealed that the British heavyweights have signed a two-fight deal, with the first expected to be held this summer, but other details such as a venue are still unknown given the constant changing situation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The highly-anticipated bout will unify the heavyweight division – with Joshua holding the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles and Fury holding the WBC belt.
Joshua has been ticking over since his dominant victory over Kubrat Pulev back in December with lighter training at his old amateur club Finchley ABC. But now he’s turning it up a notch ahead of the biggest fight of his career.
He is planning on heading to the EIS in Sheffield along with trainer Rob McCracken to continue his training camp.
And Eddie Hearn is optimistic that all the remaining details of their deal can be ironed out by the end of next week, with both fighters having to agree on a venue.
‘We can’t wait. AJ has started his training camp and Fury has been training very hard. They all want the fight,’ he told reporters.
