SPORTS: ALL OPTIONS ARE OPEN

ANTHONY JOSHUA HAS  INSISTED THAT  “ALL OPTIONS ARE OPEN” FOR THE LOCATION OF HIS FIGHT WITH TYSON FURY, AND HAS DESCRIBED HIMSELF AS “THE BOSS” AS TALKS INTENSIFY

JOSHUA AND FURY’S TEAMS ARE LOCKED IN NEGOTIATIONS TO FINALIZE THE GENERATION-DEFINING HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHT THAT WOULD CROWN AN UNDISPUTED CHAMPION.

IBF, WBA AND WBO TITLEHOLDER JOSHUA TOLD NEWS MEN THAT THE PANDEMIC  IS GETTING CLOSE TO THINGS BEING NORMAL, AND THEY ARE  WORKING ON A DATE FOR AROUND JUNE.

JOSHUA’S PROMOTER EDDIE HEARN RECENTLY SAID  SAUDI ARABIA, AMERICA, QATAR, DUBAI, SINGAPORE AND CHINA WERE ALL INTERESTED IN HOSTING THE FIGHT.

HOWEVER,  THE WBC HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION TYSON FURY SAID HIS HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED FIGHT WITH BRITISH RIVAL ANTHONY JOSHUA IS NO CLOSER TO BEING FINALIZED.

          FURY AND JOSHUA ARE EAGER TO FACE EACH OTHER BUT THE ADDED COMPLICATION OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC HAS MADE NEGOTIATIONS EVEN MORE DIFFICULT. EVEN IF THE FIGHT DOES GET ARRANGED FOR THIS YEAR, FURY ADMITS HIS LONG PERIOD OF INACTIVITY IS A CAUSE FOR CONCERN.
