Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua: Wembley to host ‘Battle of Britain’ heavyweight clash

Wembley Stadium appears to be the chosen venue for the highly anticipated all-British heavyweight showdown between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua. The much-discussed bout is likely to proceed, contingent on Fury’s victory against Oleksandr Usyk on May 18 in Riyadh.

Bob Arum, Fury’s co-promoter, expresses confidence that the super fight will take place in London rather than Saudi Arabia. Arum believes that the Saudis, despite their substantial financial influence and ability to determine the location, would prefer to host the event at Wembley Stadium with a capacity crowd of 95,000, where they could act as promoters. He suggests that this choice would enhance their image more than holding the fight in Saudi Arabia.

However, Joshua may have to wait before facing Fury, as the latter might engage in a doubleheader against his Ukrainian opponent. Arum acknowledges that if Fury defeats Usyk and secures another victory in a potential rematch, it would be ideal for him to culminate his career with a significant fight in the UK at Wembley Stadium. Arum emphasizes the competitiveness of the upcoming match on May 18, recognizing Usyk as a formidable challenger who will push Fury to his limits. He also notes Fury’s dedication to training diligently for the upcoming bout.
