Super-Fight Tentatively Set



The undefeated and current unified World Champion Anthony Joshua (19-0) has a divine date with destiny after defeating Ukrainian powerhouse Wladimir Klitschko (64-4) in an epic and high-profile confrontation inside a sold-out 90,000 Wembley Stadium on April 29 in what was undoubtedly the most highly hyped heavyweight boxing clash of the titans of the decade.

Anthony Joshua has now set his sight on Tyson Fury (25-0) with professional boxing promoter Eddie Hearn publicly suggesting that the heavyweight boxing super fight between both talented British fighters will effectively determine the true heavyweight champion.


The Joshua-Klitschko main event Pay-Per-View encounter witnessed Joshua retaining the IBF Title, whilst claiming the coveted WBA Super Title and of course the IBO Heavyweight Title.


Over 80,000 tickets were sold for the Joshua-Klitschko fight at Wembley Stadium in London, United Kingdom on April 29, which officially surpassed the previous record of the Carl Froch-George Groves II bout at Wembley Stadium on May 31, 2014.


Furthermore, London Mayor Sadiq Khan officially cleared the way for a Wembley Stadium crowd record of 90,000 which in turn equaled the Joshua-Klitschko attendance record of Len Harvey‘s match against Jock McAvoy in 1939.



Anthony Joshuawho claimed gold at the London 2012 Olympics – holds professional boxing victories that have frequently arrived early inside of three rounds notwithstanding the exception of the bouts against Wladimir Klitschko (64-5), Dominic Breazeale (18-1) and Dillian Whyte (20-1), all of whom pushed Joshua to seven rounds or more; Eric Molina – who previously challenged for the WBC title – witnessed the 6″6 Anthony Joshua disposing of the Texan in three rounds via TKO.


Throughout Tyson Fury’s widely accomplished professional boxing career, the very talented 28-year-old – who is nicknamed “The Furious One” – has claimed triumphant victories over Wladimir Klitschko, Dereck Chisora, Kevin Johnson, Christian Hammer and Vinny Maddalone to name a few.


The winner of the tentative and high-profile Joshua-Fury extravaganza will invariably solidify their status as the champion of champions; the winner of the Joshua-Klitschko super fight was initially subject to go on to face Kubrat Pulev thereafter an official announcement from WBA President Gilberto J. Mendoza was made regarding contenders.


However, Anthony Joshua called out Tyson Fury thereafter defeating Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium much to the delight of die-hard boxing aficionados around the world.


With Tyson Fury’s scheduled meeting at a UK Anti-Doping hearing currently in jeopardy for July, the million dollar question on the lips of avid boxing fans around the world is when will the super fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury be officially confirmed?
