By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The biggest fight in British boxing history isn’t as close as it seems, according to John Fury, who has questioned the deal signed by Anthony Joshua and his son Tyson.
Eddie Hearn confirmed earlier this month that ‘all sides have put pen to paper’ on a bumper two-fight deal, ramping up anticipation of a heavyweight unification scrap this summer.
However, no dates nor a venue have been decided – though Saudi Arabia is the favourite – and Fury Snr has voiced his doubts over the Battle of Britain taking place any time soon.
‘We need to get him (Tyson) out, whether these cowboys get the job sorted, which I don’t think they’re going to do,’ the WBC champion’s father told BT Sport.
‘What have they signed? They’ve signed nothing in my eyes. They’ve got no date, no venue, no nothing.
‘It’s all about someone coming forward and saying, “Right, I’ll pay for the fight, I’ll stage the fight.” Where are these people?
‘That’s the position it’s in and I don’t think they can get it together. It’s too big for what’s happening and the climate the world is in at the moment.
