Promoter Arum says fight between Fury and Joshua agreed

Joshua beat Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in December to maintain his IBF, WBO and WBA titles and his promoter Eddie Hearn stated last month that the offer for a clash with fellow Briton Fury – who holds the WBC belt – was done. Nevertheless, Fury recently soft-pedaled the possibilities of the bout occurring this year, stating that no development has actually been made in repairing the battle due to hold-ups triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic and logistical concerns.
