Warren: Fury-Joshua's location will depend on the pandemic
Frank Warren thinks it is difficult to predict right now where a possible heavyweight title fight of Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) and Anthony Joshua (24-1, 21 KOs) will take place. “No one can predict how the Covid situation will develop,” the promoter of King of the Gypsies explained in an interview to talkSPORT.
“Look what is happening in recent days, the number of cases is growing. Winter is coming, and apart from the indoor stadium in Cardiff there is nowhere else to fight [in the UK]. They say that in winter, Covid will gain momentum, the situation is changing and developing. Half of Australia is now closed. Israel coped well with the pandemic, but now more and more people are sick there again,” the head of Queensberry Promotions said.
“It happens everywhere, you just have to go with the flow and use what you have when it comes to fights. I hope that by then we can defeat Covid and more options will be available,” Warren said.
In the meantime, Fury and Joshua will face other mandatory opponents this fall - "King of the Gypsies" will fight Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) on October 9, and AJ will face Alexander Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs) on September 25.
