Possible Roadblocks in Fury vs AJ Happening in 2021
While it’s been reported – Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have agreed financial terms to face each other twice in 2021.
The financial terms state that the first bout will be a 50/50 purse split, while the rematch will be a 60/40 split in favour of whomever wins the first.
There are still a number of hurdles that stand in the way. First off, Oleksandr Usyk has been stated as a mandatory WBO challenger to fight Anthony Joshua. On the other side of the pond, there are mixed feedback on whether Deontay Wilder’s contract has expired. The ‘Bronze Bomber’ intends to take the issue to mediation/arbitration.
This all means more fights could be scheduled in the meantime, pushing the timeline for Fury vs Joshua further ahead. Joshua will also have his hands full against Usyk, and if he losses the Fury fight could slip from his hands.
