Joshua’s update on Fury fight: “No place to hide now! I’m Coming”

By Matt Lieberman: Anthony Joshua just posted an update on social media saying that Matchroom Boxing has received their “first official offer to host the undisputed heavyweight championship” between him and Tyson Fury.

Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs) says he’s “lacing up his running boots” right now, and he’s saying “I will be victorious. No place to hide now! I’m Coming.”

One can interpret Joshua’s comment about lacing up his boots to meet that they’re agreed on a date and location for his Fury fight. In other words, Joshua is starting training camp now.

The comment by Joshua about Fury not having a “place to hide” is aimed at his complaints about his inactivity. Some fans believe Fury is trying to weasel out of the fight.

AJ sounds pretty excited about the news of the site offers, and it sounds like the Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn will have an announcement potentially by next week.

“I’ve done 99% of the work here, and I’m desperate for it to come off, and if it doesn’t come off, you can blame me,” said Eddie Hearn to iFL TV on the negotiations for the Joshua vs. Fury fight.

“I don’t care, I get blamed for loads of stuff. It’s no problem, but I can’t have done any more, and if can’t have done any more, I can look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘You, Eduardo, couldn’t have done any more, then I’m a happy man.’

It’s the small matter of sending the details to the terms for the relevant offers on the table.

“One call I had today was just to say, ‘We’re good. We’re in for what we,’ I’ll shut up now. Maybe nothing,” said Hearn when asked what we’ll find out next week on the Joshua vs. Fury deal.

If you haven’t heard any bad news by the middle or end of next week, we’re in a good place,” said Hearn.

It sounds good what Hearn says about the work that he’s been doing to get the Joshua-Fury fight done. We need to cross our fingers and hope Eddie can get it across the line this week.

Unfortunately, the fight could end up in Saudi Arabia rather than the UK or the U.S, but it’s down to economics. Matchroom and the other promoters and management groups aren’t going to stage the fight where it can’t make the most money.

“Public service announcement. More official news to follow, stay tuned,” said Joshua.
