AJ vs Fury Fight

Mega Fight Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury: Sky Sports, BT Sport, ESPN and DAZN

Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury could be broadcast by two different networks in both the UK and USA as organisers look to work out a compromise which ensures the fight gets over the line.

Representatives for both sides are currently continuing talks to try and finalise all aspects of a deal after agreeing financial terms several months ago.

The latest subject in negotiations, according to Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, is the TV broadcaster situation.

Hearn told reporters: “I don’t think it will be difficult. There’s a solution for everybody.

“The two broadcast issues are DAZN and ESPN in America – AJ has a matching rights deal with DAZN and Fury has an exclusive deal with ESPN.

“When you flip that in the UK, AJ has an exclusive deal with Sky and Fury has matching rights with BT.

“Is there a deal where all four of those parties can carry broadcast of the fight? Yeah, I believe there is.

Never before in British boxing history have two major PPV broadcasters worked together on a fight.

However, the precedent has been set in America with HBO and Showtime previously collaborating on the PPVs for Lennox Lewis vs Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao.

AJ vs Fury could be the first fight to have dual broadcasters on both sides of the pond.
