Anthony Joshua beat Kubrat Pulev to set up the showdown with Tyson Fury

The fight is likely to place at prime time in the UK – but a date is yet to be decided.

Arum told Barbershop Conversations: “We have a location, that’s true.

“We have a location and, as far as the date is confirmed, we haven’t zeroed in on a date.

“It could be as late as June because it would give more time to solve the coronavirus problem. By June, most people will be vaccinated, so it’s possible.

“And then we would do the fight, pay-per-view in the UK and pay-per-view early evening in the United States.”

Arum then revealed that both fighters are set to rake in around £100m (£73m) each from the fight.

He said: “The Joshua vs Fury fight will earn each of the guys close to $100million. Each of the guys.

“It is the biggest fight in history in the UK, not even close.

Hearn identified Saudi Arabia as an option as they could make twice the money.

He told iFL TV: “The government here don’t invest in bringing mega-events to the UK – they don’t necessarily need to.

“They’ve got a Premier League football game every weekend, selling 50,000-80,000 [tickets].”

Joshua beat Kubrat Pulev in December to set up the historic undisputed title decider with Fury.

Fury, 30-0-1, has predicted he will beat the Watford-born bruiser inside two rounds.

But Joshua, 24-1, is on a mission to take the 32-year-old’s head clean off his shoulders.
