By Kalu Nwokoro Idika
Eddie Hearn, boxing promoter and chairman of Matchroom Sports, has officially declared that the highly anticipated heavyweight bout between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury will hold in Saudi Arabia on either dates of August 7th or 14th.
The bout which would ultimately decide the undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion has four belts for contention.
The unification bout will see Anthony Joshua risk his four belts he reclaimed from former heavy weight champion, Andy Ruiz Junior while Tyson Fury will also be putting his unbeaten record with the WBC belt on the line.
Eddie Hearn told Skysports in an interview that the date of the Tokyo Olympics will influence the Tyson-Fury fight to avoid clashing with important events at the Olympics.
The match will produce the first Undisputed Heavyweight Champion in 21 years.
The British-Nigerian boxing maestro Joshua has a viable record of 24 wins and just one loss with 22 being knockouts while Tyson Fury has 30 wins with 21 being knockouts.
Anthony Joshua suffered his first career defeat against Andy Ruiz Junior who was more or less an under dog while he staged a victorious comeback in the return fight in December 2019.
