Joshua on verge of breaking Fury record

Published

Anthony Joshua is on track to break Tyson Fury’s British attendance record with his upcoming world title fight against Daniel Dubois.

Joshua will challenge Dubois for the IBF belt on September 21 at Wembley Stadium, with promoters expecting over 100,000 fans to attend.

Fury set the British attendance record in April 2023 when 94,000 spectators packed into Wembley to see him knock out Dillian Whyte. Promoter Frank Warren, speaking on talkSPORT, expressed confidence that the upcoming bout will surpass that figure.

“Oh, it’s massive. I mean, we will be applying to increase the capacity like we did last time when Tyson Fury fought against Dillian Whyte. And I think we’ve got it, I think we will probably break that record. So, it’s really looking good,” he said.

 

 

Joshua, 34, is no stranger to huge sell-out stadium shows, having drawn over 90,000 fans at Wembley in 2017 when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko. He has also attracted 75,000 at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium and another 62,000 at Tottenham’s football ground.

 

 

However, his last two bouts took place in Saudi Arabia, where he secured knockout wins over Otto Wallin and ex-UFC champion Francis Ngannou.

Warren acknowledged the challenge Joshua posed but remained optimistic about Dubois’ chances.

 

 

 

“A lot of people are making Joshua a favourite, and they’re saying AJ is a big puncher and so forth and I hope he comes out and comes to fight because if he lets those big punches go I know that will leave him exposed. If Daniel clips him, it will knock him out. I think Daniel is the bigger puncher,” Warren said.

“I genuinely think that Daniel can win this, he’s a young man, he’s fought better opposition in his last three fights than AJ has. And by the way, AJ has looked good in his last few fights but not against as good opposition as what Daniel has been in with.”
