Tottenham Hotspur has already hosted Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, and NFL matches, as well as a Champions League Final viewing party, but could it be the venue for one of the biggest all-British fights in recent history?
After reclaiming his belts against Andy Ruiz Jr in December, Anthony Joshua will now likely fight Kubrat Pulev, who is the IBF title mandatory challenger. WBO challenger Oleksandr Usyk could then follow (Mirror).
Meanwhile, Tyson Fury is set for a showdown with Deontay Wilder, with AJ already looking ahead to a match against the winner.
The WBA, WBO, and IBF world heavyweight Champion has made it clear that he is supporting fellow Brit Tyson Fury for the fight.
Joshua also claimed that a fight against Fury at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would be phenomenal, as the local kids would be able to watch an undisputed championship fight on their own doorstep in London.
Joshua said (Mirror): “I’m supporting Fury [against Wilder] because imagine the local kids being able to watch the undisputed championship fight on their doorstep. I’d love it to be here in the UK.
“The doors are open. I’m wishing him well in February.
“Imagine having that fight, at Tottenham? That would be phenomenal.”
