After achieving the feat of beating Andy Ruiz on Saturday night, two-time world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua may have his next UK fight staged at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
As Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, is working on the development, there are prospects of the plans becoming a reality in N17.
According to Standard Sport the possibility of AJ fight at Tottenham’s new state-of-the-art ground started back in March 2019, with Hearn telling us exclusively that he would “love to emulate the old man and put on a fight at the new Spurs ground.”
Hearn speaking said, “Tottenham’s new stadium looks magnificent. Its ultra-modern and state-of-the art,”
“I don’t know what Spurs’ plans are but it could be another option among several in London.
“With no roof you’d be limited to dates between April and September. But it looks perfect.
Hearn’s father, Barry, staged his first boxing promotion at the old White Hart Lane when Frank Bruno beat Joe Bugner in 1987.
Joshua regained the WBO, IBF and WBA (Super) titles with a unanimous points decision victory over Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia, on December 7, 2019.
