The most prominent heavyweight fight in many years is approaching and that will define the absolute champion of the Queen’s class, something that has not happened since 1999, when Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield fought their second match with the undisputed at stake, after a first draw.
It has yet to be decided whether Gypsy King and AJ will sign two matches, but what has become clear is that both will face each other in Saudi Arabia, as Joshua did against Andy Ruiz in the rematch. According to American Fury promoter Bob Arum, “He wouldn’t be in the United States because without wanting to offend anyone, Anthony Joshua doesn’t matter much in this country.”
“We already have the location and the date need to be confirmed. It could be in June because it will allow us to solve the Coronavirus problems because by that time there will be many people who have been vaccinated,” added Arum.
In this sense, Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, noted that Saudi Arabia is the most viable option to fight, because “the UK government does not invest in bringing in mega events.” He said on ITV, “They have premier matches every week to sell tickets.”
Arum spoke of the boxer bag, in the face of the so-called “Battle of Britain,” which would almost certainly make the “Gypsy King” and AJ the highest-paid athletes by the end of 2021, at the expense of its completion. Also Pacquiao-McGregor. “Each one will earn about $ 100 million from the fight. Talking about the biggest fight in UK history is an understatement. We hope to announce it in two weeks.” The 89-year-old promoter confirmed that the event will be PPV on both UK and US soil.
