Joshua, Fury agree to two-fight to unify heavyweight titles

The IBF, WBA,WBO and WBC belts will be on the line

Anthony Joshua and Tysom Fury have reportedly agreed to a two-way fight that will see the biggest belts in boxing unified.

The British boxers will go head-to-head in dates yet to be announced in 2021 as all four heavyweight belts would be on the line.

Anthony Joshua currently holds three of the belts after beating Andy Ruiz to recover his lost belts.

Tyson Fury who also defeated American Deontay Wilder holds one of the belts.

This means Joshua’s IBF, WBA, and WBO belts, plus Fury’s WBC belt would be on the line in a winner take all fight.

According to ESPN, the plan is for both fights to take place in 2021 — the first in June or July and the rematch ideally in November or December
