Tyson Fury is saying that IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has already set aside April 2018 for a fight between the two giant heavyweights next year. The only things that needs to happen before that fight can materialize is for Fury to get his boxing license boxing with the BBBofC and he needs to be cleared with the UK Anti-Doping people.

Rarely in life does the point of execution surpass the moment of expectation. The prospect of something spectacular can so often become something so instantly forgettable. Hype, hyperbole and hubris are the common staples of the 21st century diet, so overused so overplayed that it becomes nigh on impossible to distinguish genuine importance from genuinely good marketing and so when Anthony Joshua stepped into the ring this past Saturday in front of 90000 supporters at a packed Wembley stadium, a crescendo of expectation and anticipation was weighing more heavily on his relatively inexperienced shoulders than any other fighter in British boxing history.
