Talks between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have been going on for a month or so. The two men hope they can fight each other over the mega-money unification title. But all this may amount to little more than wishful thinking, seeing that Joshua’s mandatory challenger for the IBF title, Kubrat Pulev, isn’t willing to step aside to let Joshua take on Fury.


Pulev insists that Joshua must face him next rather than take on Fury. In the past, Pulev has accepted money to step aside and make way for Joshua. But this time around, he won’t accept any step-aside money to let Joshua take part in the heavyweight title unification challenge against Fury. But who knows? Pulev may be enticed to give way if he’s offered a large enough sum.

Big Names

Fury and Joshua are prominent names in the realm of boxing. Any bout between them is certain to fetch a lot of money. Ultimately, both men know they will attract huge numbers of viewers, both in the UK and from across Europe. The bout would be as exciting as renewing your domain with and taking to your site to a whole new level. And Joshua is adamant that any fight between him and Tyson would receive heavy coverage and attract numerous sponsors. Tyson may also be of the opinion that Pulev should step aside to make way for Joshua. That is why he has allowed his management team to reach out to Joshua’s camp.

Boxing KO’d by COVID-19

The COVID-19 crisis has seen the suspension of travel in almost every part of the world. And many boxing matches have also been postponed due to the pandemic. The three fighters’ management teams may have to sit down in order to find a solution. It remains to be seen whether Pulev will accept a hefty payment and step aside so that Joshua can fight Fury, his arch-nemesis.
