We will stage a number of shows.“It’s definitely a unique project. There is a lot of work to be done and don’t want to give too much away to competitors.“It will be a unique environment that will focus on the safety of the boxers, focus on delivering fights for the boxers and delivering unique TV content for our broadcasters.“We don’t want to take any chances though. For the sake of a few months we are not going to put people at risk of contracting an illness which could potentially be fatal so we won’t do it unless it is safe.”Joshua versus Pulev is not believed to be part of that schedule.SunSport reported how AJ will fight Tyson Fury behind closed doors, taking a hit of around £6.5million, if it means catching the Gypsy King before he retires.If Joshua can placate mandatory challenger Pulev and undefeated Fury can avoid the Wilder trilogy dance, AJ will happily take a hit in the pocket to land one on his real rival, who claims to have an eye on retiring.When his US broadcaster DAZN asked about fighting without the huge ticket sales windfall, AJ said: “100 per cent I would fight for $8m less, 100 per cent I would take the opportunity to fight at the drop of a hat.”CORONAVIRUS CRISIS – BE IN THE KNOWGet the latest coronavirus news, facts and figures from around the world – plus essential advice for you and your family.To receive our Covid-19 newsletter in your inbox every tea time, sign up here.To follow us on Facebook, simply ‘Like’ our Coronavirus page.Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn talks about future fights after coronavirus lockdown Top 5 Best Budget Hotels In Dubai under AED 400 a night.
