Boxing champions Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have finally signed a two-fight world title deal after months of speculation.
Joshua’s promoter Hearn told Sky Sports: “All parties have now put pen to paper and we will be working hard over the next few weeks to confirm the site and date for the biggest fight in boxing.”
When they meet, all four belts will be on the line in a heavyweight bout for the first time.
And Dubai could be the venue for the biggest heavyweight clash of the century due to take place this summer.
Joshua recently told Sky News: “Any option. Home turf, Middle East, my back garden, your back garden. I don’t mind where it is.

Dubai and Saudi Arabia are amongst the favourite destinations for the Joshua and Fury fight, with Singapore, China, America and the UK also in with a shout.
“I’m just ready to fight. I want that belt. I want to compete with Fury so all options are open to me.”
“[The pandemic] is getting close to things being normal. We’re working on a date for around June,” he said.
