Tyson Fury has confirmed that his world heavyweight title bout with Anthony Joshua, will take place August 14.

The 31-year-old Joshua holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts, while Fury, 32, is WBC champion.

The fight will see all four belts on the line in a heavyweight bout for the first time in history.

The last undisputed heavyweight champion was Lennox Lewis from 1999 to 2000, before a boxer had to also hold the WBO belt to be recognised as undisputed champion.

In announcing the fight date in a video on Twitter, Fury said: “All eyes of the world will be on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and I cannot wait to smash Anthony Joshua on the biggest stage of all times.

“This is going to be the biggest sporting event ever to grace the planet earth. Do not miss it.”
