A massive fight between heavyweight world champions Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua could occur in 2021 if their promoters can get the two-deal across the finish line. The first Fury-Joshua fight will be a 50/50 split of the revenue and the second 60/40 with the winner of the first contest getting the more significant cut.
The situation with the pandemic is something that could in the way of the Joshua vs. Fury fight. The promoters for the events need the two contests to take place in front of live audiences because of the money they can make. They want the two Joshua-Fury fights to take place in the U.K. under ideal circumstances, but the pandemic foils those plans.
According to promoter Frank Warren, Joshua (23-1, 21 K.O.s) and Fury (30-0-1, 21 K.O.s) could get from $60 million to $70 million each for one fight. That’s good money, even for these two heavyweights. Fury’s net worth will effectively triple for the first fight if those numbers hold.
Fury is so over the moon about the Joshua fight that he’s ultimately looking past the Deontay Wilder fight, which could be a bad omen. We saw how Joshua overlooked Andy Ruiz Jr. last year in June and paid it for it in getting knocked out in the seventh round.
“Nothing has been agreed, no contract,” Warren said to ESPN.com on the negotiations for the Joshua vs. Fury fight. “These guys could get between $60 to $70 million each from one fight against each other, double that if there’s a rematch, in one year.”Pls SUBSCRIBE below to our Youtube channel and mailing list to get fresh updates on money making and inspiring videos and articles.
