The final location is yet to be confirmed, but Hearn has claimed everything is now ‘virtually agreed’.
“We’ve been drafting contracts, it’s not signed but the deal has been agreed for a long time, we’ve confirmed that in writing.
“I feel like the fight is virtually there, to be honest with you. We’re in the final stages of everything that’s got to be worked out.
“There have been meetings taking place on where this fight is going to be held.
“There’s various countries. I’ve visited a few of them in the last few weeks and days and I think we’re in a good position. There’s some wacky stuff.
“There’s some stuff you’d expect and again, I know everyone wants it in the UK but at the moment they aren’t even allowing boxing so we’ve got a long way to go.”
