English sports fanatics are in for a bumper day of action on December 3 after Anthony Joshua’s team accepted the terms presented to them by rival Tyson Fury. The highly-anticipated bout is due to take place at the Principality Stadium, Wales, on the third day of December and could follow a huge World Cup tie. 

Should England finish third in Group B in Qatar, Gareth Southgate’s side will play their crunch last-16 clash earlier in the day. The Three Lions are expected to top a group consisting of Wales, USA and Iran, but any slip-up will see them playing just before Fury and Joshua exchange blows. 

It comes after Joshua’s team accepted the terms for the all-British fight, for which Fury claims to have already booked the Principality Stadium. A joint-statement by 258 Management – Joshua’s representatives – and Matchroom Boxing said on Tuesday: “258 and @MatchroomBoxing can confirm, on behalf of @anthonyjoshua, that we accepted all terms presented to us by Fury’s team for a fight Dec 3rd last Friday. 

“Due to the Queen’s passing, it was agreed to halt all communication. We are awaiting a response.”

Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, soon responded: “Contract will be with you very soon.”
