Before the Anthony Joshua fight is announced, Tyson Fury congratulates Eddie Hearn on the deal.
On August 7, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will fight in Saudi Arabia.
Upon arriving in Dallas for Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders’ super-middleweight unification, Tyson Fury congratulated Eddie Hearn on finalizing the agreement for his undisputed heavyweight bout with Anthony Joshua this summer. The Gypsy King arrived in Texas on Saturday to support a close friend and fellow gypsy, and he and trainer SugarHill Steward checked into the fight week hotel yesterday.
He was greeted by Hearn upon his arrival, who had been the target of multiple insults from Fury in recent weeks.
“The champion has arrived!” During a video caught by ESPN’s Salvador Rodriguez, Fury stated as he climbed the stairs into the foyer and put on his sunglasses.
Fury added, “You got it done then mush,” to which Hearn replied, “Told ya!” It was actually rather simple.”
“Then show some authority!” Fury answered with a witty remark as the two exchanged a handshake.

Hearn then shook hands with trainer Steward, who inquired about his well-being before the two parties parted awkwardly.
A reporter then questioned the Matchroom boss if a big announcement was on the way.
“No, not yet, we’ll see, we’ll see,” says the narrator. “Perhaps,” he responded.
After Saturday’s main event, Hearn is expected to announce that the biggest bout in boxing will take place on August 7 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Fury’s promoter, Bob Arum, claimed last week that the bout was “dead in the water,” but Hearn denied this.
Due to the large number of lawyers engaged, the contractual agreement has taken significantly longer than intended.
Hearn said that legal teams from the United Kingdom, the Middle East, and the United States’ west coast had been working on the final document, which must be authorized by all parties.
Meanwhile, Fury is confident that Saunders would defeat Canelo in what would be one of the most memorable upsets by a British fighter on foreign soil.
“I’m 100 percent convinced he [Saunders] will destroy this mother f*****,” he told Matchroom Boxing in the hotel lobby.
“Without a doubt. I believe he’ll give him a boxing lesson before slamming him around the 11th or 12th round.
“Honestly, I’ve never felt this certain about anything.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
