Tottenham‘s magnificient new stadium could be the venue of Anthony Joshua‘s next fight in the UK, promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed.
Joshua’s upcoming fight, against Jarrell Miller on 1 June, will be staged at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
His previous fights in his home country, UK, had been at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium and Wembley.
Hearn’s father, Barry, staged his first boxing promotion at the old White Hart Lane when Frank Bruno beat Joe Bugner in 1987.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, the younger Hearn now says he’d “love to emulate the old man and put on a fight at the new Spurs ground.”
“The big stadium shows are quite rare but you’re always looking out for places. And Joshua had outgrown the indoor arenas here.
“Tottenham’s new stadium looks magnificent. Its ultra-modern and state-of-the art.
“I don’t know what Spurs’ plans are but it could be another option among several in London.
“With no roof you’d be limited to dates between April and September. But it looks perfect.
“It’s got to be on the radar for future big boxing events.”
Spurs’ new stadium can seat 61,000 people and is billed to stage its first senior football match against Crystal Palace tomorrow night – April 3, 2019.
