Fury ultimatum: Joshua contract ready on Monday? Hearn’s answer


The other day promoter Frank Warren (queensberry promotions) said that ex-heavyweight champion British Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) will have to give a final answer on Monday – he is offered to accept in early December in Cardiff (Wales) a fight for the WBC title against compatriot Tyson Fury (32-0- 1, 23 KO).

According to Warren, in which case they will switch to another possible opponent on Monday. Promoter Joshua Eddie Hearn (Matchroom Boxing)
explains, what is the delay: “This is a very controversial statement from Frank, as we are currently negotiating with his team. And they are doing great, but there is still a lot of work ahead. It seems to me that the problem is elsewhere. It’s just that Fury doesn’t really want to fight Joshua, but Manuel Charr. To me, this is obvious. They just understand that the fan will not understand this. So they’re looking for excuses.”

“Sign a contract on Monday? I tell it like it is, it is a priori impossible. There really is still a lot of work to be done. Yes, we are moving in the right direction, we have held a number of meetings, we have a preliminary date. But no more. When the contract is ready, then we will sign it. All these deadlines and talk about Monday… So what’s the point of all this? They are well aware that there will be no deal on Monday. If you want to disrupt negotiations, do it openly. And so, it looks like an attempt to disrupt the fight at a time when both teams are desperately trying to agree, ”says Hearn.

Yesterday, Fury and Chisora ​​grappled in front of the camera lenses, cursed terribly. Apparently, Derek is also on the list of candidates for the fight. Meanwhile, Tyson’s brother named the most likely next opponent.
