Joshua and Fury both have title defences against Kubrat Pulev and Deontay Wilder respectively and should they emerge victorious, the two Brits will go at it next year.

The publication report 'a fee of between £29.95 and £49.95 will be considered' by providers Sky Sports and BT Sport Box Office.

It means that fans could be forced to spend over double the amount the pair's last fights cost.

The fight is being billed as one of British boxing's biggest ever fights and that tag will impact the show cost.

World Boxing News go on to explain fans should 'get used to the fact they will be asked to pay at least £29.95'.

Both competitors will earn huge purses for the fight and multiple titles being on the line make it a lucrative contest.

Fury vs Joshua is one of the most anticipated fights in boxing and it's fair to say it will be treated as such.

Both men could earn up to £55 million from the heavyweight clash.

Promoter Frank Warren claims the pair of world heavyweight title holders could earn purses of $60 million-$70 million (£47 million-£55 million).

Fury and Joshua's purses could then double if they have an immediate rematch.

It would also be the first all-British match to generate nine figures in total revenue.

"It was always going to be a 50-50 deal and a rematch," Warren told ESPN. "Other than that, nothing has been agreed, no contract. It's looking like Wilder [as Fury's next fight] toward the end of the year, unless something comes up.

"I hope the Joshua fight happens, and I would like it this year if we can. These guys [Fury, Joshua] could get between $60 [million] to $70 million each from one fight against each other, double that if there's a rematch, in one year."

Eddie Hearn added: "We're making great progress. There is still a lot to overcome. We are looking at venues and dates."
