Anthony Joshua has officially accepted Tyson Fury’s offer for their ‘Battle of Britain’ showdown and with this, has now paved the way for the biggest fight in British boxing history.
Joshua was on the surprising end of a callout from Fury, who is not willing to wait till 2023 for an undisputed clash with Ukrainian, Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua was offered a 40 per cent split of what would be a record-breaking haul to fight the Gypsy King.
The news comes after Fury’s promoter Frank Warren confirmed on Tuesday that he would be sending Joshua an official written offer for a fight against Fury.
A date in early November was initially put on the table, but Joshua can only return by December at the earliest following last month’s defeat to Usyk.
