Tyson Fury Insists Deal For Showdown With Anthony Joshua Is Not “Imminent”, Despite Claims By His Camp


(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Tyson Fury is not confident over fight with Anthony Joshua taking place soon as negotiations surrounding the mouth-watering all-British unification bouts drag on.

It was revealed in the summer of last year that the Gypsy King is set to take on Joshua in two 2021 fights that are likely to bring all the heavyweight belts together.

But Fury has revealed that the talks involving the date are the terms are a long way from being resolved, though believes the fight has to happen ‘sooner or later’.

Fury told iFL TV: ‘Until I have a date, a fight and a hell of a lot of money in my pocket, there’s no fight. There are a lot of things that people don’t know that can scupper a fight.

‘Nothing’s actually on until you’re in the ring, we’re nowhere near that at the moment. 

‘Do I think the fight will eventually happen sooner or later? Yes, it has to happen. Do I think it’s imminent? No.’

Fury has also hinted that American rival Deontay Wilder could be his next opponent in what would be a trilogy fight between the pair.
