Tyson Fury has taken to social media to confirm that he will consider several offers relating to the venue that will potentially host his giant unification showdown with Anthony Joshua.

Speculation has intensified this week that a fight between the heavyweight rulers could be in doubt due to a host not being found but Fury has told his Twitter followers that he will use the weekend to make his decision. 

"Just got some big news, three or four big offers on the table,” said Fury. “Interest from Saudi Arabia, my gypsy brothers in Qatar, Uzbekistan, Russia, America, England — there's some big, big offers on the table. I'm going to go through them on Sunday and hopefully we'll get the big fight on and let me smash this big dosser." 

Fury’s update followed previous statements from both Joshua and Eddie Hearn who empathically declared that they’re doing all they can to make one of the sport’s biggest events a reality.  

With contracts signed by the fighters, the location of the fight remains the biggest stumbling block. These next few days will be crucial in ensuring that the fight of 2021 takes place.
