By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – John Fury has urged Eddie Hearn to agree a fight between his son Tyson and British heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua in an expletive-laden rant against the Matchroom promoter.
Sportsmail reported earlier this month that the first draft of contracts for the highly-anticipated unification fight has been exchanged between the two parties, with only minor issues left to resolve.
But Fury Senior looked a frustrated figure when asked about the progress of the fight and called out Hearn for taking too much time to go through the details of the fight deal.In a message to Joshua’s promoter Hearn, Tyson father said via IFL TV: ‘I don’t take your b******* mate. Sign the document! You’ve got it in front of you, sign it. Because we know where you’re coming from.
‘Sign the f****** paper, and I don’t swear. The contracts are there, sign it. We are ready to go.’
Tyson claimed earlier this week that the fight is no closer to being finalised and blamed the coronavirus pandemic for the delay in an agreement being reached.
‘They’ve had a full year to make something happen, and it hasn’t happened as of yet. We’re no further forward today than we were a year ago,’ he told ESPN
