Frank Warren Confirms Tyson Fury HAS Received Contract For Summer Mega-Fight With Anthony Joshua, Assures Unification Clash Is On Course


By vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The clash between the heavyweight champions appeared to be on the verge of collapse this week after Fury’s team expressed their frustrations with Joshua’s promotor, Eddie Hearn, consistently failing to meet deadlines.

Bob Arum, Fury’s US promotor, said that the unification bout was ‘dead in the water’ and that the WBC champion would pursue other opponents, namely arch rival Deontay Wilder.

However, Frank Warren, who also promotes Fury, has revealed that the Gypsy King’s camp have finally received a copy of the contract and are forensically reviewing the details of the agreement.

What Eddie Hearn says on AJ fight is absurd, Tyson Fury is fuming!"

‘We’ve had something come through from the other side,’ Warren told Seconds Out. ‘A contract which we’re all reviewing, a proposal.

‘A proposed contract which we’re reviewing. And obviously we’ll look at it and hopefully we can agree terms. That’s what we all want.’

Hearn has always insisted that £108m deal for a mid-summer battle between Joshua and Fury remains in the Saudi Arabia pipeline, saying: ‘It is definitely, 100 per cent, going to happen. A little support would be nice.’

And Warren has stressed that all sides want to get the deal over the line, maintaining that hard work is being done to finalise the mega-fight. 

‘We all want this fight, everyone wants this fight,’ he said. ‘It’s not about being negative, you can only respond to an offer when you’ve got an offer and try and get it over the line.
