The fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua could take place in December this year, and the amount of the contract is 30 million pounds.
Fight Wladimir Klitschko vs Anthony Joshua in the near future should be officially confirmed, but so far, the media pop up different details of the upcoming megafit.
Negotiations on the Klitschko vs Joshua began shortly after Tyson fury for the second time declared their unwillingness to have a rematch with the Ukrainian, which was won last year by decision. It was expected that the promoter, Eddie Hearn, representing the company Matchroom Sport and K2 Promotions announced the signing of an agreement on the fight this week, however, new circumstances arose under which the negotiations dragged on.
The reason for the delay was the decision by fury to abandon the championship belts, with the result that the teams Klitschko and Joshua has the opportunity to gamble more they belt to the IBF, which is owned by Anthony. “The refusal of Tyson fury from the zone opened the way to the titles WBO, IBO and WBA. Now all you need to bring to a common denominator,” commented Hearn.
As reported ad battle is worth waiting for in the beginning of next week. Also reporter Gareth Davies reports that the match fee will be £ 30 million.
However, Eddie Hearn in an interview with BBC Radio 5 stated that “the agreement between the fighters already concluded,” making it clear that officially, the deal will be announced shortly.
In addition to the question about what belt boxers will fight, is still not fully understand the situation with the venue. Another stumbling block is the agreement between the translators, as Klitschko has, as before, has a contract with HBO, while Joshua entered into an agreement with a direct competitor of the company on the American market — Showtime.
As for the site, then it is unlikely to be the O2 arena in London. Planned date of the battle — 10 Dec. On the same day the arena may take a concert band Madness, and on 17 December it also planned the Fat Boy Slim concert, which is also the obstacle of the box.
It is expected that the fight Klitschko and Joshua, which is already being called the most intriguing in the heavyweight division over the last decade will beat the record for number of sales broadcasts on the system of pay-per-view, established in 2007 to fight Ricky Hatton against Floyd Mayweather.
It sold 1.2 million PPV.
