Promoter Frank Warren calls for Joshua vs Fury fight amid the heavyweight landscape going through its most exciting time for many years.
Promoter Frank Warren today confirmed a new five-year deal with BT Sport to show his boxers on a long-term deal.
Further good news for the sport of boxing.
Warren recently signed his now biggest fighter to his stable – former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Fury’s comeback is penciled in for June 9th at the Manchester Arena against an opponent to be confirmed but the plan is to get Fury in there with the likes of Joshua and Deontay Wilder after that.
Speaking today on the potential Fury vs Joshua fight in particular, Warren said to Kugan Cassius of IFL TV:
“We’d love to do that (Joshua) fight. Of course we’d love to do it. We’ve got to do whatever it takes to make it happen. Make the fight happen. It’s the biggest fight in my life time in the sport and I think it is one of – if not the biggest British sporting event when it happens.”
The main bone of contention to making the fight happening would be two factors at this point in time.
Both fighters fight on rival TV networks and both fighters are signed with rival promoters – who traditionally seldom make fights together.
However if boxing history is anything to go by, if a fight is big enough – it will get made.
