Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua will be finalised by the end of December, as long as both men win their fights that month, according to Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum.

In fact, the details of the monumental world heavyweight title fight will take just three hours to agree on, with both teams entirely on the same page, believes the veteran American promoter.

Fury is no longer fighting Deontay Wilder next and is looking for an opponent for a 5 December bout in London.

Possible opponents include Oscar Rivas, Agit Kabayel and Efe Ajagba with Fury looking for someone in the top 15 of the WBC rankings who does not have a fight scheduled in the coming months.

Joshua is set to take on Kubrat Pulev on 12 December, defending his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO world titles in a bout that was due to happen in the summer but was delayed due to the pandemic.

Clearly both world champions must win their fights in December, but if they do Arum believes things will be signed, sealed and delivered for Joshua vs Fury extremely quickly, thanks to the pair agreeing on a 50-50 financial split.

‘We’re all set with that,’ Arum told Boxing Social. ‘It’s a 50-50 deal, we’ll iron out details.

‘Let the two guys have their fights in December. Tyson against whomever he fights on 5 December. Joshua against Pulev on 12 December.

‘They both win, we know pretty well where we’re going with the fight.

‘I think within three hours we can finalise any details that are outstanding, it’s not rocket science, particularly when you make a 50-50 deal.’

Joshua’s promoter has been bullish on the all-British world title fight, even confident that there will be two scraps between the two behemoths in 2021.

‘Don’t slip up on the banana skin that we saw and get these fights made next year,’ Hearn told talkSPORT. ‘Fury against AJ, I really believe you’ll see two of those.

‘One in spring/summer, one at the end of the year, and it’s a must.’
