“Positive news this evening! I’m lacing up my running boots rn!!! @258MGT and @Matchroomboxing have received the first OFFICIAL offer to host the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Of The World! I will be victorious God willing! No place to hide now! IM COMING!”
Back in January, Joshua had the following to say on a potential meeting with his fellow countryman.
“When it was Deontay Wilder in my way, that was my focus and he admitted we gave him lucrative offers that he turned down,” Joshua continued. “Now it’s Tyson Fury that’s my pure focus. The offers will be made, substantial offers.
“I’ve fought many champions before so it’s obvious to see we’ve done business with world champions before. It’s no different with Fury, he should take this fight with both hands. The money will be split down the middle.”
The big hold-up right now seems to be the venue, but once that’s all been resolved, fans can begin to look ahead to the future and a fight at some point in 2021.
