Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury: Date, Tickets, Venue, Odds, Stats And Everything You Need To Know

Anthony Joshua to fight Tyson Fury in June this year

The countdown for the biggest boxing fight of 2021 has begun...Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury is happening this year.

Heavyweight boxing always produces outstanding encounters; the likes of Deontay Wilder and Dillian Whyte have been more recent contenders to both Joshua and Fury, but neither could be beaten on said occasions.

Fury has endured a remarkable resurrection back into the ring. The Gypsy King has been through several physical and mental battles in recent years and a brutal knockout display against Wilder in 2020 completed the perfect comeback story.

But Joshua has been on a path of his own. Losing to Andy Ruiz Jr in June 2019 was a devastating blow, but AJ has since recovered and remains a deadly weapon in the heavyweight division.

So...Joshua holds the IBF, WBA and WBO belts while Fury has the green and gold WBC strap; it will be an entertaining bout and one the entire boxing world will be tuning in for.
