The current record is 4.6 million buys, which was set in May 2015 when Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao finally squared off.
Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs) last fought in December when he notched a ninth-round knockout over Kubrat Pulev to retain the IBF, WBA (super), and WBO heavyweight titles.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) hasn't competed since February 2020, stopping Deontay Wilder in the seventh round to capture the WBC strap.
