Sunny Saudi Arabia has been confirmed as the location of the Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury fight this august.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said during an interview with Sky Sports today (May 11) that the heavyweight battle will take place on “August 7th” or “August 14th”.

“I think it’s a very bad secret that the fight is happening in Saudi Arabia. To be honest with you, I don’t mind giving you that information. Bob Arum has already done it” he added.

Hearn who announced that a two-fight deal between Joshua and Fury, had been agreed in March denied claims from Fury’s co-promoter Bob Arum who said the fight was “dead in the water”.

The two are now set for the fight of the year with the winner set to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Britain’s Lennox Lewis in 1999.
