ICYMI: Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua agree to terms

October 17, 2016

It’s so very close!

Heavyweights Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua have not yet signed for the fight, but the terms have been agreed on.  Eddie Hearn said to Boxing News, “I would say the terms are agreed for Joshua-Klitschko but there are things that have got to fall into place to make sure that it gets signed. It’s not signed.”

“We had a simple plan, probably IBF and WBA. Then he [Tyson Fury] vacated all the belts and you’ve got WBO, IBO. Other organisations have come on and said can we do Joshua-Klitschko as well. I just want to make sure when we do the announcement we know exactly what belts are on the line, they’ve been legally sanctioned and we can actually do a poster that exists,” the promoter continued. “I’m just making sure we’re meticulous in that and [when they say] contracts are signed, broadcast deals are done, belts on the line are X rather than just jumping on it.”

The fight should be in December in Manchester.  What do you think about this fight?
