Eddie Hearn, the promoter of World heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has said that a deal for his client to fight WBC champion, Tyson Fury in an undisputed world heavyweight title bout this year is all but done.

Hearn explained that Joshua and Fury would face each other in two fights, with the first expected to be in the Middle East in 2021, and he hoped to bring the rematch back to the United Kingdom.

Joshua defeated Bulgarian boxer, Kubrat Pulev last December to retain his IBF, WBO and WBA titles, while Fury currently holds the WBC belt.

“The deal is done, really— without being signed,” Hearn told the Times.

“The financial elements of the deal are done. We are talking through the broadcast situation, the only thing really now is to paper it.

“And when you papered a deal like that, it does go back and forwards fifteen times before every single letter is approved on the document.”

Hearn added, “The Middle East will be aggressive and will be front-runners in this. To stage this fight, you need significant government support. You need someone who is staging this fight as a statement for their country.

“I would like it [the rematch] to be [in the United Kingdom]. Where? Millennium Stadium.”

Big Brother Naija Season 6 housemate, Cross has expressed fears that Saga might want to take a voluntary exit if Nini doesn’t come back to the house.

Cross made this known during a conversation with Pere on Wednesday.

Pere had opined that he felt some type of altercation might have happened between Saga and Nini which led to her sudden exit.

He further went on to state that whatever it was that happened, Nini’s sudden exit from the show wasn’t called for.

In response, Cross said that whatever it was that happened can only be explained better by the duo.

According to him, Nini is the only one that knows what Saga might have said to her which made her take the decision she took.

“Nobody was there with them when they had whatever conversation or altercation they might have had.

“Its only Nini that knows what Saga said to her. And from his behavior I feel like he’s feeling bad probably for something he might have said. Whatever it is they are the only ones that know.

“But that guy isn’t in a good state so I fear he might want to take a voluntary exit if she doesn’t come back,” he said.
