The heavyweight rematch between Alexander Povetkin and Dillian Whyte has been officially confirmed for March 6.

Povetkin knocked out Whyte in the fifth round of their WBC interim title bout last August and the pair were originally set to meet again in late November at Wembley Arena.

However, the fight was postponed after the Russian was admitted to hospital with COVID-19.

Promoters Matchroom Boxing has announced a new date has now been set, with the rematch now scheduled for around seven weeks' time.

The card will take place behind closed doors at a venue that has yet to be confirmed.

After being laid low by coronavirus last year, Povetkin recently stepped up his training regime as he looks to retain the WBC interim heavyweight title with another victory over Whyte.

World of Boxing Promotions Company, who represent the 41-year-old, posted on Twitter on Friday: "Alexander has fully recovered and started his training camp on January 12. 

"He is progressing well in the first stage of his preparation. We hope the second fight will live up to everyone's expectations and that Povetkin will deliver another spectacular finish."

The winner of the rematch will be in line to face either Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua later in 2021 for the heavyweight world title.

Meanwhile, it was also confirmed on Friday that Josh Warrington, who has not been in action since October 2019, will defend his IBF featherweight belt against Mauricio Lara on February 13.

Anthony Joshua would love his blockbuster bout with Tyson Fury to happen at Wembley Stadium but insisted he will face his domestic rival "wherever it is, whatever time it is".

IBF, WBA and WBO champion Joshua is finally set to face off against WBC champion Fury in 2021 after clearing the hurdle of Kubrat Pulev at England's national stadium last month.

It remains to be seen where the huge heavyweight showdown between the British foes will take place due to continued uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Boxing events in Britain are suspended in January due to the rise in COVID-19 cases and Joshua insists fans would need to be allowed to attend if the fight with Fury takes place at Wembley. 

"I would welcome Tyson Fury to that. I would welcome him to that all day," Joshua told Sky Sports News.

"It's brilliant for the kids of the local areas to come down. It's like half an hour drive, a couple of hours' drive for some of them.

"It's a brilliant opportunity to have it here as well, but the government have got to do right by the people and protect us from this virus. I understand the situation that the country is in.

"I think the possibilities of it being in this country are down to the pandemic, and how that shapes up.

"I feel, for me, I'm not too fussed where it is. I just want to get the fight, because there's so much variables, and so much for me to look at. Where is it going to be? Is he going to take the fight? Have I got a mandatory?

"I've just stripped it all back now and stopped dealing with that stuff. I've just said, 'Let me just fight Tyson Fury wherever it is, whatever time it is.'"

No specific date has yet been rubber-stamped for a fight that would see an undisputed heavyweight champion crowned, but Joshua is targeting a meeting by the middle of the year.

"I think maybe June, end of June," said Joshua.

"It needs a bit of time, because the pandemic is unpredictable at the minute. We don't know what's happening, but with a little more time, it gives us more time to prepare and plan.

"Right now, I said to the team, let's get ahead of the curve, let's start putting things in place now. They are doing a great job.

"I promise you, conversations and face-to-face meetings are happening with representations of my team and Tyson Fury's team."

Tyson Fury doubts Anthony Joshua's knockout power and claims his heavyweight rival has a confidence issue, having avoided fighting him "for a long time". 

The two British boxers appear on course to finally face each other after Joshua was victorious over Kubrat Pulev in December, stopping the Bulgarian in the ninth round of their bout at Wembley Arena. 

Both sides agreed in principle to a two-fight deal for 2021, though details over a date and venue for an initial bout are still being discussed.

After seeing off Pulev, IBF, WBA and WBO champion Joshua vowed to beat Fury when they finally go toe to toe, insisting he will take his "head off his shoulders" in the long-awaited showdown. 

However, in an interview with Fox Miami, the holder of the WBC title questioned Joshua's ability to back up his words. 

 "I don't think he's as good as people crack him up to be, or he doesn't believe he is, his own self. He's got a confidence issue," Fury said. 

"The fight has been brewing for a long time. They've been avoiding me for a long time. Now it's finally got to happen. 

"I've never seen him take anybody's head off anybody's shoulders in all of his 22 fights. It's probably a lie, another lie. We'll see if he's got the guts to try and do it." 

Fury had hoped to get in a bout before the end of 2020 - a year in which the boxing schedule was badly hampered due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic - only to shelve that plan.

The 32-year-old has not fought since February of last year, when he sensationally stopped the previously unbeaten Deontay Wilder in their rematch in Las Vegas.

Promoter Frank Warren has revealed talks are ongoing over a date and venue for Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua to meet in a fight that will be "one of the biggest in British boxing history".

The two heavyweights have both made clear they are keen for a lucrative unification showdown, with a two-fight deal previously agreed between both sides for 2021.

However, there are still details to be sorted out, including over exactly where a first bout will be staged, particularly with the continuing impact of the coronavirus pandemic on major sporting events.

Outlining his plans for the coming year in his column for the Daily Star, Warren - whose Queensberry Promotions work with Fury - has no doubts over who will prevail, whenever the event takes place.

"The big one that everyone wants to see is Tyson Fury against Anthony Joshua to decide the undisputed heavyweight champion," Warren wrote.

"Talks are continuing as we plan when and where to stage one of the biggest fights in British boxing history.

"Of course, I'm backing Fury to come out on top in that and prove what I believe that he is the best heavyweight in the world right now."

Joshua retained the IBF, WBA and WBO titles in December when he stopped Kubrat Pulev in front of a limited crowd of 1,000 at Wembley Arena.

Fury, meanwhile, holds the WBC belt, having dethroned Deontay Wilder in their rematch last February. He had hoped to fight again before the end of 2020, but was forced to shelve those plans.

Warren confirmed the continued COVID-19 health crisis makes it unclear exactly when fans will be able to be present in big numbers inside venues, but made clear "the planning and plotting continues".

That includes trying to fix a date for Carl Frampton's bid to win a world title a third different weight, 'The Jackal' set to take on WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring as early as February.

Anthony Joshua has denied claims he is scared to face Tyson Fury and is eager to finalise a contract for a much-anticipated unification fight between the heavyweights. 

Promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed on Saturday a verbal agreement is in place for Joshua to take on Fury next year, most likely in the Middle East due to coronavirus restrictions.

IBF, WBA and WBO title holder Joshua knocked out Kubrat Pulev earlier this month to clear another potential hurdle standing between himself and a lucrative clash with Fury.

He appeared reluctant to call out the WBC champion in the aftermath of the fight at Wembley Arena, saying only that his focus was on securing the fourth heavyweight belt.

Fury accused his fellow Briton of running scared but Joshua is determined to put everything on the line by finalising a date for a money-spinning bout in 2021.

"Whether he really wants it or not, I'm keen," Joshua told Sky Sports. "I basically said, 'If Tyson Fury is the man with the belts, Tyson Fury is the man I want.' 

"That basically says, 'I'll fight anyone who has that belt, there's no problem with the person'. I just want to go for the undisputed championship. 

"That's what I was trying to say that night. He took it how he wanted to take it. I've never turned away from a fight. I've never announced a fight and not showed up. 

"I've fought six to seven champions, in my short career. Tyson Fury is another one of them.

"There's no reason as to why I see him any different to any other. If Fury is down, I'm ready, I'm keen. I've got four of the major belts, he's got one. I'll take that one from him."

Fury has not stepped in the ring since beating Deontay Wilder to reclaim the WBC heavyweight belt in February, with plans for a trilogy fight halted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Joshua's mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk has suggested he is happy to step aside for now, meanwhile, clearing another obstacle.

"I'm speaking to my management team, and I'm ready. I'm keen," Joshua said. "I've got past my mandatory. Right now, I'm about less talk, more action.

"But the ultimate thing coming from me, I'm ready. The next fight, I want Tyson Fury, the next fight I want the WBC champion, the next fight I want to be for the undisputed championship of the world.

"That being said, they are in conversations now – my management team, my promotional outfit – of the best way to put a package together that can lead us into 2021.

"Hopefully, the pandemic will be done and we can bring someone unity, a good energy to Britain, if we can announce this fight."

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez recognised the damage to Callum Smith's left arm as early as the fourth round after dominating the Briton, who Eddie Hearn says may have a detached bicep or triceps.

Alvarez (54-1-2) inflicted a first career defeat on Smith (27-1) in Texas on Saturday to clinch the WBA and WBC super-middleweight titles by unanimous decision. 

Following the fight, which the judges scored 119-109, 119-109, 117-111 in favour of Alvarez, Smith refused to make any excuses for the one-sided loss but pictures showed gruesome damage to his arm.

Asked about the injury to his opponent, Alvarez replied: "It was the fourth or fifth round that I obviously saw it was hurting, I have much faith in those type of punches.

"It was the 12th round I saw it was really hurt, we know he has a really good left punch that's what we worked on at the gym."

Matchroom promoter Hearn offered an update on Smith, who will undergo further examination to ascertain the extent of the injury.

"I saw it I think in the 11th round, Canelo looked at it and pointed at it, it was getting bigger and bigger," Hearn said. 

"It's not diagnosed yet, some people in the dressing room think he broke his arm, it makes sense he took a lot on it. 

"I think it looks like a detached bicep or triceps. He has a lump on the outside of his arm, the doctor said it's a torn bicep or triceps so he's going to need a scan. 

"I think it happened as early as the second or third round, but he didn't for one second say 'I couldn't do this or I couldn't do that' it just got progressively worse. 

"He's a very humble guy he just held his hands up and said Canelo was the better man."

Shortly after the bout, WBO super-middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders tweeted to call out Alvarez, a fight Hearn says that, in theory, is easy to put on.

"[I could make that fight] tonight," he added.

"I mean the big problem is when you talk about the revenue for any show is that gate. Tonight we were blessed with 12,000 people, it felt like my first ever show I went to as a kid. 

"We already had a deal for Billy Joe Saunders to fight Canelo Alvarez in May, he's tweeted tonight that he wants a shot. 

"Canelo walked past me after and said that's three who's next? We tried with Rocky Fielding, Daniel Jacobs - we've got two more in Billy Joe Saunders and Gennady Golovkin [who Alvarez has faced twice, drawing the first fight and winning the second]. 

"He loves the belts, he wants to face the champions."

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez is open to another fight against Gennady Golovkin after winning the WBA and WBC super-middleweight titles.

Alvarez dominated Callum Smith in Texas on Saturday, beating the Brit by unanimous decision after being in control throughout.

The Mexican's win came a day after rival Gennady Golovkin beat Kamil Szeremeta to retain the IBF and IBO middleweight titles.

Alvarez drew with Golovkin in September 2017 before winning by majority decision a year later.

Asked if he wanted to face the Kazakh again, Alvarez told DAZN: "I don't run from nobody.

"I just showed that I fought against the best."

Smith was no match for Alvarez, handed a first professional defeat after struggling to impose himself as the 30-year-old produced an impressive performance.

Both fighters were in action for the first time since November last year, and Alvarez was pleased with his showing.

"I did a great job after 13 months out. Smith is a greater fighter, as you can see I did a great job," he said.

"Thanks to everybody for coming and supporting me. I'm so happy."

Alvarez added: "I'm the best in the world. In the first round I tried to see what he brings, the skills, whatever.

"Like you saw, I showed what I am."

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez dominated Callum Smith, winning the WBA and WBC super-middleweight titles by unanimous decision on Saturday.

Alvarez, returning to super-middleweight, was in control throughout at the Alamodome in San Antonio, handing Smith his first professional defeat.

Such was his dominance, the judges scored the fight 119-109, 119-109 and 117-111 in Alvarez's favour.

Smith (27-1) towered over Alvarez (54-1-2), but the Mexican walked him down throughout in an impressive performance.

While the first round was cagey, Alvarez took control as the more assertive fighter.

Alvarez was walking Smith down, and a big right seemed to hurt the Brit in the fourth round before an uppercut also landed.

Smith had started to slightly free up, but Alvarez was untroubled as he continued to dictate.

Alvarez remained in control and he had Smith on the ropes after a flurry of punches in the seventh round.

Smith finally started to make some inroads in the eighth, landing a big uppercut, but Alvarez responded in the ninth and a huge right hurt the Brit.

Alvarez's body shots appeared to hurt his opponent in the 10th and he was never in any real danger, Smith managing to go the distance.

Callum Smith will aim to become just the second fighter to beat Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez when he defends his super-middleweight titles on Saturday.

However, several British boxers have tried and failed in the past to get the better of the Mexican superstar, who will be taking part in his 57th career bout and is still only 30.

Canelo told Stats Perform News this week Smith is "absolutely different to the other fighters I have faced", and the WBA champion will hope for a different result, too.

Take a trip down memory lane as we look back at the previous times Alvarez has come up against Brits in the ring.

Matthew Hatton - March 2011 (won by unanimous decision)

Canelo, already with 36 fights to his name (35-0-1), earned his breakthrough world title shot aged just 20 and took on Ricky Hatton's brother in California for the vacant WBC light-middleweight belt. It was also Hatton's first - and last - championship chance, though, and he was outclassed.

The beaten opponent reflected on "a long night" earlier this year as he told Sky Sports: "I left the ring that night believing that I'd been in with someone special who would go on to have a brilliant career." He was not wrong.

Ryan Rhodes - June 2011 (won by technical knockout)

Just three months on from the Hatton fight, in his very next bout, Alvarez defended his title back in Mexico against Rhodes, another Brit. It was an impressive display from the champion as he stayed patient after Rhodes recovered from a no-count knockdown in the fourth, decisively ending the contest against a staggering opponent in the final round.

Rhodes said he was "beaten up by a superstar of boxing", although he acknowledged he "probably underestimated him, underestimated his power". It was a mistake no man can afford to make against Canelo, who declared himself "ready for anybody".

Amir Khan - May 2016 (won by knockout)

Alvarez backed up that big talk in the aftermath of the Rhodes win but had tasted his sole career defeat - against Floyd Mayweather in September 2013 - by the time he next faced a Brit. Khan moved up two weight divisions to challenge for the WBC middleweight strap, yet it proved several steps too far.

A brutal right hand downed Khan in round six, before Canelo called out Gennady Golovkin, setting in motion their epic rivalry. Khan told Sky Sports his opponent was "a beast" and would now back him to beat Mayweather in a rematch.

Liam Smith - September 2016 (won by knockout)

The Mexican did not immediately move on to GGG and instead next tackled Smith, returning to light-middleweight to take the WBO crown. It was another devastating, dominant showing against a champion Alvarez had described as having "real knockout power". Smith went to the canvas in the seventh, eighth and, finally, ninth rounds.

"There are world champions, then there are elite fighters," Smith told Sky Sports, feeling his opponent had fallen firmly into the latter camp.

Rocky Fielding - December 2018 (won by technical knockout)

Smith's assessment was echoed by the fifth Brit to come up short against Canelo. "I tried my best but that's what elite fighters are like," Fielding told Sky Sports, saying he "dared to be great" by taking the fight. By that point, Alvarez had twice faced Golovkin, winning a rematch after a controversial initial draw.

There was nothing contentious about the defeat of Fielding, who was knocked down four times inside three rounds before the Madison Square Garden bout was halted. "The better man won," said Fielding.

It is now up to Callum Smith to upset the odds and prove he can be the better man.

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez believes fighting Callum Smith for the WBA and WBC super-middleweight titles is a "risk".

Alvarez (53-1-2) returns to super-middleweight for the bout against WBA holder Smith in Texas on Saturday.

It will be the Mexican's first bout since November last year as he takes on the unbeaten Smith (27-0).

Alvarez, a four-division world champion, said he was taking a risk with the fight, but it is one he is embracing.

"I like risk, I like taking risk, taking this fight is a risk," he told DAZN on Thursday.

"I'm fighting the number one at 168 pounds so these are challenges for me and I continue to bring challenges forward and I like the risk of it. I like challenges to continue making history."

While he is the top-ranked super-middleweight in the world, Smith enters the fight at the Alamodome in San Antonio as the underdog.

But the Brit, whose last fight was also in November last year, said he was confident of an upset.

"For me obviously I like my chances in this fight, I wouldn't call for a fight that I believed I would lose. I've been asking for this fight because I believe I'll win it," he said.

"I understand I'm the underdog, you look at social media, a lot of people don't really give me a chance in this fight but I've been here before, I was the underdog in my world title fight. If anything, it gives me a little bit more motivation, a little bit of a point to prove to prove my worth.

"I believe I deserve to be in this fight. I'm the number one in the world, I worked very hard to be in the position I'm at and now I'm enjoying the luxury of being world champion and being involved in these big fights, which like I said before I dreamed of being in since I was a little boy."

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez acknowledged Callum Smith poses a "different" and "hard" challenge but vowed his own skills and experience will be enough to defeat the Englishman.

Canelo and Smith do battle at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday night for the WBC world super-middleweight title.

The Mexican will drop back down to the 168-pound limit to take on WBA champion Smith, who boasts a 27-0 record.

Canelo, the four-division world champion, and Smith needed no extra incentive to win, but they were informed last week the vacant WBC strap is there for the taking.

Both Smith and Canelo have won WBC straps previously, the latter holding the super-welterweight and middleweight straps and the former the diamond belt at 168lbs.

Canelo has not fought this year, his previous appearance in the ring seeing him stop Sergey Kovalev to become WBO light-heavyweight champion in November 2019, but he insists he is in the best condition of his career.

"I feel I am in the best time of my career," he told Stats Perform News. "I feel strong. I am more mature and experienced. So, the truth is I feel better than ever.

"He [Smith] is absolutely different to the other fighters I have faced. He is a tall guy and has a big range. He likes to get into the fight, punching the body, great counter-attack, so it is going to be absolutely different and it will be hard to beat him.

"However, we are ready and I believe my experience and skills will give me the strength to win it."

Asked what it would take to overcome Smith, Canelo said: "Managing my position in the ring and knowing when to keep my distance.

"Don't waste my punches and use them when I know they will be useful. So, my experience and skills are vital to win this fight. All the fights I did already have given me experience for this kind of fight."

Around 12,000 supporters will be allowed into the vast Alamodome following an easing of coronavirus restrictions and Canelo hopes to put on a show for them.

"I believe 2020, with the pandemic, has been very tough for everyone," he added. "We had to learn to manage it and get adapted to this time, but thankfully we will be closing up 2020 after 13 months with no fights.

"I feel very happy and motivated. This is a venue for 70,000 people and there will be 12,000 there in order to keep social distance and spread them around. Hopefully they can enjoy a big event."

As the mandatory challenger, Avni Yildirim will be in line to face the winner of the bout between Canelo and Smith within 90 days of their bout.

Tyson Fury has urged Anthony Joshua to "grow a pair and sign the contract" for a much-anticipated unification fight between the heavyweights. 

Joshua knocked out Kubrat Pulev at Wembley Arena on Saturday to retain his IBF, WBA and WBO belts, in the process clearing another potential hurdle standing between himself and a lucrative showdown with Fury. 

Promoter Eddie Hearn revealed on Sunday that an agreement could be in place for a 'Battle of Britain' clash in May 2021 in the next "couple of days". 

Fury, who has not stepped in the ring since reclaiming the WBC heavyweight belt with victory over Deontay Wilder in February, has now ramped up the stakes by suggesting the deal hinges on Joshua. 

"I'm willing to take the fight, I don't know if they are," he told ITV's Good Morning Britain. 

"I've been willing to take the fight for the last five years, it's not happened so far but I'm very optimistic it will happen in 2021."

Asked if he had a message for Joshua, he replied: "Grow a pair and sign the contract, big boy." 

Plans for a trilogy fight between Fury and Wilder in July were put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, while Joshua may yet be told by the WBO that he has to face mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk next. 

Should an agreement finally be reached between Fury and Joshua for a two-fight deal, it will reportedly be worth $500million (£372.47m). 

"Well, that doesn't sound too bad, but then again I don't believe anything I see in the paper," Fury said. 

"So yeah, we'll see what's going go on, but let's hope this fight happens." 

He added: "All of these organisations will allow this fight - it's the biggest one since Muhammad Ali fought George Foreman and the Rumble in the Jungle. it's a massive fight. 

"Oleksandr Usyk is a mandatory - but if that belt has to be vacated then I'm sure they’re going to do it to make the biggest fight of our generation. 

"I'm willing, I hope he's willing and let's give the fans the fight they really want to see." 

Joshua finished Pulev with a brutal right in the ninth round, but Fury was not that impressed by his rival's performance and vowed to get the job done inside four rounds. 

"I'm not just saying it because he's going to be a rival of mine and he's going to be one of my opponents, but I've always said for a long time that I do believe Anthony Joshua's tailor-made for somebody with my style," he said. 

"I think it's going be one of the most explosive, quickest fights you're going to see. I'm aiming to take him out inside four rounds." 

A deal for the long-awaited world heavyweight unification title fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury could be agreed within days, according to promoter Eddie Hearn.

Joshua knocked out Kubrat Pulev at Wembley Arena on Saturday to retain his IBF, WBA and WBO belts and clear another potential hurdle standing between himself and a lucrative showdown with Fury.

Hearn confirmed in the aftermath of the fight that talks over a 'Battle of Britain' clash in 2021 will ramp up on Monday and has now revealed he expects a contract to be signed imminently.

Asked how long it will realistically take to complete a deal between both camps, Hearn was quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "A couple of days. There is no reason we cannot complete the deal and then move on and solve the other problems.

"We need to write to the governing bodies and say yes we have a deal and we will now talk to the various sites and confirm the dates shortly for what I suppose will be the end of May."

Fury reclaimed the WBC heavyweight belt by ending Deontay Wilder's unbeaten streak in February with a sensational seventh-road stoppage in their much-anticipated rematch in Las Vegas.

However, he has not been in action since as plans for a trilogy between the pair in July were put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, while a possible return to the ring in December against another opponent was ruled out last month.

Joshua may be told by the WBO that he has to face mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk, meanwhile, but Matchroom promoter Hearn remains confident of getting the bout on in 2021.

"The only hitch I can think of is Wilder. If the court order the Fury rematch, and it doesn't sound as though they will, then it is out of our hands," he said. "That is the only way it falls through is if something stops their side. 

"That isn't me saying they don't want it, they do, but if the court orders it then we will have to fight Usyk.

"The WBO probably on Monday will email to say you have 30 days to start negotiations with Usyk. [Bob] Arum seems very confident that the fight (Wilder-Fury) is not on. Unless he has made complete balls up, it sounds like the fight is dead."

There is no doubting Fury's eagerness for the fight, with the 32-year-old having posted a video to his official Twitter account on Saturday promising a quick win in a meeting with Joshua. 

"He got asked if he wants the fight and he went around the bushes," Fury said in the video.

"I want the fight. I want the fight next – I will knock him out inside three rounds. He's a big bum dosser, I can't wait to knock him out."

Eddie Hearn promised "less talk" and "more action" as the promoter plans to get a deal done for Anthony Joshua to fight Tyson Fury next. 

Joshua cleared a potential hurdle in the way of the lucrative heavyweight showdown by beating Kubrat Pulev on Saturday, in the process retaining his IBF, WBA and WBO belts. 

Fury is the reigning WBC champion, and the two British boxers now appear on a collision course for 2021. 

Hearn believes it will be a historical occasion when the pair do finally meet in the ring, as he plans to begin negotiations with Fury's team immediately. 

"Since he [Joshua] came into my office, he's wanted to be undisputed heavyweight champion of the world," Hearn told Sky Sports Boxing. 

"Less talk from us, more action. We're going to be friendly, we're going to be nice. We know what we have to do, starting from tomorrow, we make the Tyson Fury fight straight away. 

"It's the only fight to be made in boxing – and it's the biggest fight in boxing. It's the biggest fight in British boxing history, too. 

"I know he [Joshua] wants it. He's the best heavyweight in the world, I promise you. He will break him down and knock him out. 

"We know what we have to do, we know what we want to do. It's about legacy – and we will get it done."

Top Rank's Bob Arum, who works with Fury, also made clear that his priority is to get the fight signed and sealed, insisting it will be as big as Muhammad Ali against Joe Frazier, which is known as the 'Fight of the Century'.

"It looks like the stage is set for the biggest heavyweight championship fight since Ali-Frazier in 1971, when Tyson Fury meets Anthony Joshua for the undisputed crown," Arum posted on Twitter.

"We at Top Rank will start on Monday working to put that fight together."

Fury shelved plans to fight before the end of 2020, while he and Joshua – who stopped Pulev in the ninth round at Wembley Arena – agreed a two-fight deal earlier this year.
