Warren Confirms: Joshua vs Fury Bout Scheduled For 2025

Africa Today News, New York, has learned through sources close to Tyson Fury’s camp that Frank Warren, the renowned promoter, is eyeing a potential showdown between the Gypsy King and Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia next year.

According to Warren, there’s a strategic plan in motion: Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are slated for two encounters this year, potentially pushing Joshua’s aspirations to 2025. The staggering financial incentives, rumored to reach £100m for the victor, necessitate a rematch clause for the loser.

“Next March, if Tyson does what I believe he’ll do and AJ continues to win, I’m sure that’ll set up a big fight,” Warren told Sky Sports.

“It’s like going back to the late 60s, 70s, that’s what’s happening now. These guys are all fighting each other.”

There’s a strong possibility of Fury and Joshua crossing paths twice. Eddie Hearn disclosed earlier this week the potential signing of a two-fight agreement, indicating that one of the matchups might unfold at Wembley Stadium.

Warren contends that, for purely financial motives, they’ll inevitably collide at least once in the Middle East, stating that frankly, that will be the direction it will be heading. He say that Naturally, he would prefer to see them square off in the UK.

“I look back when I was younger – all those many, many, many years ago – I look at all those really great fighters like Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, where did they put their big fight on? The Rumble in the Jungle [in what was then Zaire]. Where did George Foreman fight Frazier? In Jamaica. The Thriller in Manila. That’s what happens. Because they went where the money is.

“Those fights I mentioned took place in places you’d never dream of boxing taking place. Traditionally it would have either gone to New York, then it became Vegas with the casinos.

“They’re professional sportsmen. And boxers, unlike most sportsmen their career is very limited. One on your block and it can be all over. So you’ve got to make hay while the sun shines.’

In preparation for his encounter with Fury, Joshua must line up a worthy opponent to keep himself sharp. Following his victory over Francis Ngannou, contenders such as Filip Hrgovic, Deontay Wilder, and Joseph Parker stand out as potential adversaries.
