Boxer Anthony Joshua's camp has agreed to terms for a fight against World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Tyson Fury on December 3 in Cardiff, NL. Wales.
This was reported by various sources, including ESPN, on Tuesday. The belt holder will thus be entitled to 60% of the purse.
Former monarch of the World Boxing Association, the International Boxing Federation and the World Boxing Organization, Joshua (24-3 -0, 22 KOs) has suffered two consecutive loss by decision at the hands of Oleksandr Usyk, including that of August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
For his part, Fury (32 -0-1, 23 K.-O.) lost by K.-O. in the sixth round Dillian Whyte in his last encounter, in April. It was the second defense of his title obtained at the expense of Deontay Wilder on February 22, 2020; he won the rematch against the American on October 9, 2021.
