Eddie Hearn, promoter for IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, believes a deal is nearly finalized for the highly anticipated unification with WBC champion Tyson Fury.
Both sides will discuss the site offers tomorrow.
The financial terms and most of the other items have been agreed upon, for a two fight series that will play out in 2021.
The first bout of the series has yet to receive a finalized date or location.
Hearn has mentioned a tentative working date of July 24 - with the hope that everything will be wrapped up by next week.
“It’s good to hear some positivity from the team, we’re close, both fighters will be presented with offers for this summer,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
“He talks when things are close, you can feel the excitement building. We’ve got several offers on the table. I’m quietly confident. The teams will get together, I’ll see Bob Arum on Tuesday, we’re nearly there. I don’t want to get too excited, but we’ve worked really hard to get this done.
“He had a dream to become undisputed, and we’re in a good place, we’re nice and close. All I can tell you is I can’t do more than I’m doing, we’re on the verge now. It won’t be long.
“I don’t think it will take a lot of decisions, both fighters want to get moving. He’s virtually in camp already, it’s the biggest fight of all time, the biggest sporting fight this year. The build-up will be something you’ve never seen before. It doesn’t get any bigger than this. It will never get bigger than this in our generation. We’re n the verge, on the top of the hill, hopefully we can scream and shout in the future.
“It [London] will be presented, but financially it’s not at the races. Speaking to DCMS, can we get 100,000 on 24 July, the answer is ‘we hope so’. We’re in the middle of a global pandemic, it’s difficult to secure the logistics. It’s now, not at the end of the year. It happens this summer, we may not get this opportunity again. Never ideal to make a sporting event like this in the middle of a global pandemic.”
