Tottenham Hotspur may not have won at the weekend, but they have just received one up on their north London rivals after it was announced that boxer Anthony Joshua’s next bout will be held at Spurs’ ground.
The Sun have revealed that the Englishman will fight Kubrat Pulev for his world titles on July 20th at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium despite a late bid from Arsenal to hold the battle at the Emirates.
Spurs were beaten by Chelsea in Saturday’s early kickoff, and it is clear to see that some are still reeling as they have chosen to unleash at the board as well as the chairman in reaction to this latest news.
Here’s what has been said…
Good for Levy 💷 no real advantage for fans watching a team without an attack.

It´s all very good we are getting succesful off the pitch, but I would rather see investment and succes on the pitch. I know Levy will say they go hand in hand, but right now it looks like Levy is gonna miss CL revenue next season due to lack of focus on the team………….SAD

Levy won the right not Spurs unfortunately we won’t see the money on the field I just don’t believe so. We need some transparency!!

One supporter was far from pleased with the news, claiming that Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy were probably dancing on a yacht whilst another believes the money they’ll receive from hosting such an event will not be reinvested in the playing squad.
Plenty of others offered up sarcastic responses as they see it as ENIC lining their pockets rather than benefitting the club as a whole.
A big issue that has been highlighted in recent weeks is their failure to secure a striker following the injury suffered to Harry Kane as Heung-min Son has since joined him on the treatment table, thus leaving manager Jose Mourinho without an out-and-out senior forward.
Which has led to some fans wondering if they could now buy one ahead of the summer transfer window and even if Joshua could play upfront for them…
But we couldnt possibly afford a striker… pic.twitter.com/PtCzBGfqUu

Does that mean we can buy a striker now 🤣🤣

Can AJ play up top 🤔

Can he play upfront?

Several more members of the Spurs fanbase were past the point of caring with one joking that they had finally won something as their last piece of silverware came in the 2007/08 season with the League Cup.
At least we won something… https://t.co/vfQP4lCCTB
