Cannot wait to smash Joshua: Fury drops the big news on Twitter

Last week, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn had already hinted that the heavyweight bout will be heading to Saudi Arabia on either 7th or 14th August. And now, Fury himself has dropped the bombshell, confirming the latter as the official date.

On Sunday, Fury made the big reveal via a Twitter post, where he claimed that he even had a conversation with Prince Khalid of Saudia Arabia regarding “the worlds biggest sporting event all eyes on us.”

“Hey there, Tyson Fury the Gypsy King. I’ve just got massive news for all of you guys. I’ve just got off the phone with Prince Khalid of Saudia Arabia. He told me this fight’s 100% on. August 14, 2021, summertime,” Fury said in the clip.

All eyes of the world will be on the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. And I cannot wait, repeat, cannot wait to smash Anthony Joshua on the biggest stage of all times. This is going to be the biggest sporting event ever to grace the planet Earth. Do not miss it. All eyes on. Peace out, God bless. See you all in Saudi,” the Gypsy King added.

While this will be the first time in Fury’s boxing career that he heads for Saudi, Joshua has already had experience in the heart of the Arabian peninsula, back in December 2019 when he thrashed Andy Ruiz in the rematch to regain his unified titles.
