Tyson Fury took to Twitter to reveal an iteration of the cover for the upcoming WBC Main Event. He will be taking on Anthony Joshua in one of the highly anticipated fights of the year.
Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, has recently revealed that contracts for the two-fight deal have been signed. However, he remained tight-lipped on the date and venue of the fight.
Hearn previously called the event, “one of the biggest fights of our generation.” He added, it is also the biggest fight of Fury and Joshua’s careers. At that time, Hearn was working on acquiring the Wembley Stadium for the event.

Evidently, progress has been made since then. Fury has revealed a ‘Gladiator’ themed poster for the event as well. The poster includes himself, Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte, and Alexander Usyk.
As of now, there are no confirmed fights for the other three fighters. Whilst Joe Joyce has made an offer to fight Usyk, there are no updates regarding Deontay Wilder and Dillian Whyte.
A Definitive Fight for Tyson Fury
Fury has also been working on his shape for the upcoming fight. After posting an image of him looking blown out of proportion, he followed it up with a shot of him looking fitter than ever. Anthony Joshua anticipated he would be going up against the ‘best ever’ version of Tyson Fury.
The Gypsy King is coming into the fight with a perfect 30-0 undefeated record. Joshua on the other hand has 1 loss to Andy Ruiz Jr in his 24-1 record. Joshua currently holds the IBF, WBA, and WBO titles whilst Fury holds the WBC title. After the first fight, the WBO belt will be vacated.
The second fight, however, will be even more interesting as it will pave the way for the contenders. Although they will have to wait for about 12 months, it will make the upcoming year (2022) all the more exciting for them. For us fans, the wait will surely be long yet rewarding as we await these title fights.
