Boxing stars Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have apparently agreed to multiple fights.

It’s been widely believed that Fury would eventually fight Joshua after he pummeled Deontay Wilder, against whom he still has a third fight. Now it sounds like the two superstars have reached an agreement. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“It’s fair to say [Joshua and Fury] are in agreement regarding the financial terms of the fight … We’re in a good place. It’s fair to say that, in principle, both guys have agreed to that fight. Two fights,” Joshua’s manager Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports during a Wednesday interview.

Fury is the WBC heavyweight champion, and Joshua is the current holder of the IBF, WBA and WBO titles.

To say these would be the biggest boxing matches in the coming years would be an understatement.

I’m definitely not a boxing expert by any stretch of the imagination. Not at all. Not even a little bit. I enjoy the sport and follow the stars.

That’s about the extent of my knowledge of the sport, and I have no problem admitting it.

What I do know for sure is that nobody in the sport moves the needle like Fury does. The man talks trash and wins.

He’s almost certainly going to beat Wilder again, and then he’ll move forward to take out Joshua. In case you were wondering who I’m pulling for, it’s 100% Tyson.

He’s a friend of the program!

There’s no set dates for these fights, but I’m sure they’re still a very far way out. Wilder/Fury 3.0 might not happen until Christmas, so we might be waiting awhile.

Still, it’s a reason to get pumped. Go, Fury, go!
