Former world champion Amir Khan has tabbed WBC world champion Tyson Fury to defeat WBO, IBO, WBA, IBF champion Anthony Joshua, if the two British heavyweights ever collided in a unification.

Eddie Hearn has hinted at a possible venue for the long-awaited heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.

Joshua’s promoter believes the contract for a two-fight deal between the two world champions is all-but signed.

Aside from a location, TV rights and the purse split also need to be resolved, but Hearn believes the fight is a step closer to being announced.

“The deal is done, really – without being signed,” Hearn was quoted as saying by The Times.

“The financial elements of the deal are done. We’re talking through the broadcast situation, the only thing really now is to paper it.

“And when you paper a deal like that, it does go back and forwards 15 times before every single letter is approved on the document.”


Joshua has already fought in Saudi Arabia, winning back his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles from Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019 following his shock defeat to the American six months earlier.

“We’ve had over half a dozen offers from different countries and interest from another three or four,” said Matchroom MD Hearn.

“We’ve had one from Australia, we’ve had conversations in Singapore and Saudi, Qatar, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, in Eastern Europe, in America.

“The Middle East will be aggressive and will be front-runners in this. To stage this fight, you need significant government support. You need someone who is staging this fight as a statement for their country.

“I’d like it (the rematch) to be (in the UK). Where? Millennium Stadium.”

The two fighters are expected to finally do battle in a clash to unify all the current world titles.
