£200m mega-fight: Anthony Joshua working on plan to beat Tyson Fury

Anthony Joshua is in the process of perfecting a tailor-made strategy to beat Tyson Fury, according to his promoter Eddie Hearn.

Joshua, 31, and Fury, 32, are set to finally meet in the ring this summer after terms for the lucrative mega-fight were agreed last week.

The two heavyweight champions will share the projected £200million purse for the fight which is likely to take place in Saudi Arabia, where Joshua beat Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019.

The winner of the bout will then earn 60 per cent of the purse of the rematch which could take place in Cardiff later in the year.

The fight is yet to be officially announced but Joshua’s preparations are well underway as he looks to add Fury’s WBC belt to his WBA, WBO and IBF titles to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

“He would say that he’s tailoring his training for his career,” Hearn told Sky Sports of Joshua’s planning. “He is training, sleeping, resting. I want to rein him in for a rest.

“He is so focused. Although he’d tell you that he’s training just to improve as a fighter, I know that all he’s thinking about is Fury.

“He’s working on the plan to beat this guy and become undisputed. I love the work he’s doing, the improvements he’s making, the mind-set.

“He has the mind-set of a winner, of a champion. Fury is a fantastic fighter but AJ will do a job on him.
