This will be Fury’s first fight since his history-making night against Deontay Wilder in February 2020, where he demolished Wilder. He let it loose after his win, and went back to his partying self. But over the last couple of months, he has been training pretty hard and is set to go.
Anthony Joshua on the other hand is coming off a win against Kubrat Pulev, only as recently as the 4th of December 2020. He has been training like “a madman” since that win, according to his promoter Eddie Hearn.
