Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua now have a date and a place to square up. SkySports is reporting the fight will take place on August 14 in Saudi Arabia in a custom built stadium.

Promoter Eddie Hearn mentioned that there were indoor options but the fighters and the Saudi’s want this to be something special.

“They want to create something very, very special. Last time they built a stadium for the Andy Ruiz Jr. fight in just seven weeks and it held 18,000. This will be a similar set up.”
