Arsenal and Tottenham usually battle it out on the pitch but now they are competing off the field to host Anthony Joshua’s next fight.
Promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed he has offers on the table from both sides to host Joshua’s summer fight with Kubrat Pulev at the Emirates Stadium or Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Joshua will look to retain his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight belts when he takes on Bulgaria’s Pulev with the bout set to go ahead in June.
Reports suggest staff at the Emirates have been told they will have to work at a major event in the summer but it seems Tottenham are winning the race to host Joshua’s upcoming showdown.
Hearn told the Mirror: “Terms are, I’d not say agreed, but we’re in a good position.
“We have an agreement in principle for a June fight. (Text courtesy of The Nation)
