UKAD have came to a resolution with Fury that will see him eligible to apply for a professional boxing license again with the British Boxing Board of Control.

A Fury vs Joshua fight would no doubt be absolutely massive if it can be made in the future.

The earliest one would have thought it could be done though is the end of 2018.

Given Fury will need at least one comeback fight and Joshua is currently on course to face Joseph Parker next up.
