Top Rank CEO Bob Arum does not see the United States as a possible venue for the first of two proposed heavyweight bouts between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.
According to Arum, Joshua is not popular enough in the US, unlike the same Fury, who, according to the promoter, is already half American thanks to his performances and interactions with the public and the media.
“Absolutely not. I don’t want to say anything like that so as not to upset anyone. But Anthony Joshua has no weight in the United States,” said Bob Arum.
“Fury has already partially made himself an American, people like his behavior, they are in awe of him … So I don’t think the USA is the right place for this fight. The Joshua-Fury fight should take place either in the United Kingdom or in some some other place that will bring high income. “
We will remind, earlier Arum also said that Vasily Lomachenko wants to have a revenge with Teofimo Lopez.
