Eddie Hearn Reveals Potential Two-Fight Deal Between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, Including Wembley Stadium Bout

British boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has unveiled plans for a blockbuster showdown between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, hinting at the possibility of a two-fight deal.

Hearn also suggested that one of the bouts could take place at the iconic Wembley Stadium.

Background on Joshua and Fury

Both Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have recently fought in Saudi Arabia, with Joshua dispatching Francis Ngannou in two rounds and Fury set to face Oleksandr Usyk in May.

These victories have set the stage for a potential matchup between the two British heavyweights.

Hope for a UK Bout

Despite concerns that Joshua and Fury might not meet on British soil due to lucrative offers from Saudi Arabia, Eddie Hearn has raised hopes for a UK showdown.

He indicated that Turki Alalshikh, a prominent figure in Saudi sports and entertainment, is exploring the possibility of staging one of the fights at Wembley Stadium.

Wembley’s Boxing Legacy

Wembley Stadium holds significant boxing history, with Joshua defeating Wladimir Klitschko and Alexander Povetkin in front of massive crowds.

Fury also secured a victory at Wembley, defeating Dillian Whyte in 2022, adding to the allure of hosting a Joshua-Fury bout at the iconic venue.

Global Vision in Boxing

While acknowledging the appeal of Saudi Arabia for hosting major fights, Hearn emphasizes the importance of a global vision in boxing.

He believes that Alalshikh recognizes the desire for a Joshua-Fury fight in the UK and has the financial capability to make it happen, underscoring the potential for a historic matchup on British soil.
