Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have agreed for two fight contract first of which will take place in June or July 2021. While the second fight is also likely to take place towards the end of 2021. Fury vs Joshua is the biggest boxing fight available at the moment and it will certainly be the biggest British boxing fight of all times.
The date and venue will be confirmed by the end of March 2021 considering UK government pandemic restrictions which are expected to ease before June 2021. If government confirms that crowd is allowed for sports even by end of June we can expect the fight to take place on the Saturday, 26th June 2021.
|FURY VS JOSHUA||DATAILS|
|Possible Date||June or July 2021 (to be confirmed by end of March 2021)|
|Possible Venue||Depend on UK crowd restrictions. If UK still have lockdown by June, Saudi Arabia and Las Vegas as possible venues|

|Is there any Rematch clause ?||Yes, both parties agreed for two fight contract second of which will take place at the end of 2021 or early 2022.|
|TV Coverage ?||IF the fight is in the UK or USA, BT Sports and Sky Sports will share the rights. If fight is in Saudi Arabia only Sky Sports will be exclusive rights holders|
However if UK government wont allow the fans back in the stadium, there are some international venues like Saudi Arabia and Las Vegas in the US. Eddie Hearn revealed that they have concrete offers from Saudi Arabia and they are looking at all the possible venues before finalizing the date.
All four heavyweight belts will be on the line where Joshua bring his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles while Fury holds the WBC title. Both fighters are expected to clear in excess of $100 million each from the fight and since there is a second fight clause 2021 might turn out to be absolute huge for boxing fans.
