Again, there is no concrete indication as to where the fight will take place.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, promoter Eddie Hearn said: “All parties have now put pen to paper and we will be working hard over the next few weeks to confirm the site and date for the biggest fight in boxing."

In terms of the bookies’ opinion on which country it will be held, Saudi Arabia is a clear favourite at odds of 1/2

With regards to a specific venue the KASC Sports Hall in Jeddah is being touted at 4/7, while the Allegiant Stadium is priced at 5/1.

How can I watch Fury vs Joshua?

This is another big question that is still yet to be answered.

Both fighters are understood to have current agreements in place with different broadcast partners in the United Kingdom.

Fury reportedly has a deal with BT Sport Boxing. All of his fights since 2018 have aired on the network.

Joshua has an exclusive deal with Sky Sports, and his rematch win over Andy Ruiz Jr in December 2019 netted a domestic record of 1.6 million pay-per-view purchases at a cost of £24.95 each.

One likely scenario in the UK is a joint pay-per-view production with both Sky Sports Box Office and BT Sport Box Office airing the bout.

How much will Fury vs Joshua cost?

As yet, the pay-per-view cost of the fight has not been confirmed.

Previous reports suggested that Sky might charge as much as £49.99, but that remains speculation, and Hearn has claimed that he believes £29.95 would be the likely price point.
