TYSON FURY and Anthony Joshua have finally AGREED on a venue for their all-British heavyweight unification fight, according to Eddie Hearn.

Fans have been growing increasingly concerned the showdown would collapse after their 28-day deadline to find a venue expired.

AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn revealed the exciting update on Thursday evening

Joshua, 31, and Fury, 32, signed a two-fight deal in March, and promoters gave themselves a four-week period to have a venue and date set in stone.

But AJ’s promoter, Hearn, has all-but confirmed the clash WILL happen with the venue now agreed upon.

Hearn added the venue and date will be announced shortly and the fight wil definitely take place this summer.

He told BehindTheGloves: “I don’t want to talk too much about it.

“All I will say, which I haven’t said to anyone yet, is that both sides have approved the site offer they want to go with.

“Now we’re just finalising the site deal. We’re in a great place.

“We’re moving forward now, we’re good.

“You’ll get the date soon and the official announcement.”

In another positive update, Hearn revealed he’d met with Fury in Las Vegas – where the Gypsy King is currently training – with the Morecambe star completely focused on fighting Joshua.

Hearn said: “I saw Tyson yesterday. It was good.

“We just had five or ten minutes together and it was good.

“I don’t represent Fury so I don’t know what’s in his mind.

“And what he basically cemented in my mind was, this is the only fight he wants.

“And I know that’s the same with AJ.”

Hearn refused to confirm where the agreed upon venue was based.

However, both Hearn and Fury appeared to hint the monster fight would take place at the £1.6billion ‘Death Star’ arena in Las Vegas.

The pair both posted images of the stunning Allegiant Stadium onto their Instagram stories earlier this week.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar, China, and Singapore have all expressed an interest in hosting Joshua vs Fury, with Wembley also being considered.

And when asked if the fight would definitely go ahead, Hearn confidently roared: “Oh definitely. 100 per cent, yes.

“Both guys want two fights. One will be in the summer, one will be in December.”

Meanwhile, Joshua was in confident mood as his training continues as he predicted he’d ‘kick Fury’s a**e”.

AJ roared: “We’re expecting me to be a week better with my skills, a week stronger with my mentality, a week wiser and I’m gonna be a week closer to the date where I get to kick Tyson Fury’s a**e.”
