Late last night (UK time) three-belt heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua gave what seemed to be an exciting update to his millions of followers on social media.
The WBA, IBF and WBO belt holder is seemingly in the news every day with websites running story after story regarding his potential undisputed fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury.
While this past weekend seemed to be a deadline to get the fight across the line, the tone of conversation has changed following Fury’s positive social media post that offers were on the table from various countries. “I’m gonna go through them on Sunday (yesterday) and hopefully we get this big fight on and let me smash this big dosser, big useless dosser!”
Joshua then took to his social media accounts to declare a ‘Public service announcement’.
“Positive news this evening! I’m lacing up my running boots!!! @258MGT and @Matchroomboxing have received the first OFFICIAL offer to host the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Of The WORLD! I will be victorious GOD willing! No place to hide now! IM COMING.”
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn who has been prolific with his own updates posted from his own account ten minutes later, “Busy day today and a long night ahead!”
The tweets, the videos, the updates will continue until there is an official announcement and long after that. And while some boxing fans are growing somewhat tired of the daily news it does seem that inch by inch this super-fight is close to happening.
