Nothing can stop Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua in 2021, says Bob Arum, as AJ shows off devastating power in the gym

There is nothing that can stop the fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury in 2021, according to Fury’s co-promoter Bob Arum.

Talks have been progressing for some time for a British heavyweight showdown between the pair this summer with AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn saying a verbal agreement is in place.

One potential stumbling block was the situation with Deontay Wilder.

Fury was due to fight the Bronze Bomber at the end of 2020 but that was called off amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The British fighter’s camp believe they are under no legal obligation to fight Wilder for a third time.

The Alabama-based boxer thinks differently, though, and both parties are currently going through mediation to come to a conclusion.

Arum insisted the Gypsy King would never fight Wilder again.

He told to Barbershop Conversations: “There’s no mediation. I mean, there has been over Christmas, and New Year, there was mediation.

“I don’t know, maybe the mediator will be able to solve the situation, but we got a real problem because Tyson Fury has said to me and the mediator, ‘Not today, not tomorrow, and not ever’ will he ever fight Wilder after what Wilder said to him.

“He [Fury] regards is not only as a slur against him but against the Gypsy nation.”

Arum also added that Fury would not have to relinquish the WBC belt in order to fight AJ.

He added: “Why would he have to release the [WBC] belt?

“I don’t want to get into any legalities, but the idea of anyone stopping the Fury – Joshua fight, it just can’t happen. The WBC belt isn’t an issue.”

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua has posted a video on his Instagram account showing his work in the gym ahead of any fight with Fury later this year.
