COVID-19 may delay Joshua, Fury unification bout

Published by The Nation on Fri, 27 Mar 2020

Anthony Joshuas promoter Eddie Hearn has once again claimed that a serious delay to the unified heavyweight champions scheduled title defence against Kubrat Pulev could pave the way for an end-of-year unification fight with Tyson Fury.The most-anticipated fight in the history of British boxing is within touching distance following Furys demolition of Deontay Wilder last month, which saw him claim the WBC heavyweight title.Shortly after The Gypsy King ended Wilders five-year reign atop of the WBC heavyweight rankings, a unification bout with Joshua became the talk of the boxing world.Should Joshua and Fury win their respective bouts against Pulev and Wilder, an end-of-year showdown will likely come to fruition.
