Fury Vs Joshua is without a doubt, one of the biggest sporting events of 2021. Promoter Eddie Hearn is taking charge of the event. Previously, he revealed that both fighters have already signed their contracts.

However, he remained tight-lipped on the date and venue of the fight. Hearn also spoke about the possibility of keeping the first fight at Wembley Stadium. After all, it is one of the biggest fights of this generation.

Plans for the fight have received a major boost after the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, entered discussions. Apparently, the Mayor is a big fan of the proposed combat and a fan of Hearn as well. He has since agreed to discuss the ambitious plans with Hearn.

Khan is enthusiastic about the event and is more than happy to help Hearn make it happen.” Eddie Hearn can do anything,” he told SNTV. “I mean this guy is amazing. I call Eddie a friend, I’m a fan of his.”

Khan is keen to watch the Joshua-Fury fight unfold just like every other fan. Although, with him now on board with Hearn’s plans, a lot of progress and concrete information can also be expected soon. “If Eddie and the teams want to have the fight in London, we’re ready,” he said.

All Systems Go for Fury Vs Joshua

Fury Vs Joshua is now being speculated to take place around July 24th, which is the end of the Euro period. Prior to that, the clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City on April 25 could serve to be a ‘test event’. 8,000 people will witness the event live.

As we move towards the Euros in June-July, Wembley is expected to operate at 25 percent capacity. That is one-fourth of the expected capacity for the Joshua-Fury fight. Eddie Hearn wants the fight to be in front of a full crowd.

“This is massive. This is something the whole world will stop to watch,” Hearn said. Whilst it appears that Hearn and Co. will want to keep the fight at full capacity, they have a very limited time to make the jump from twenty-five to a hundred percent. If all goes well, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will take the stage in front of a full capacity Wembley Stadium.
