Fury’s promoter explained the reason for the deadline for Joshua – all because of Usyk


Promoter Frank Warrenqueensberry promotions) explained to fans and media representatives about the deadline that they, together with the WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs), set for compatriot Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs).

It is today that he must give a final answer about whether he accepts the fight with Fury on the proposed conditions.

I decided dot the i’s: “We offered Joshua two dates, November 26th and December 3rd. They offered a choice. In my opinion, everything is extremely simple here – accept or refuse. Remember that this is not mandatory protection. It’s the generosity of Tyson who offered Joshua the quickest way to get back to the top. And the distribution of the fee in the ratio of 60/40 is a very generous and worthy offer. Yes, there is a clause on immediate revenge with the distribution of money equally. Everything. These are all conditions. There is nothing to argue or discuss here. There are two options here – accept or not.

“About the deadline,” Warren continued. We need an immediate response. Tyson told me so: “If they do not accept, then we move on.” Why this particular date? Because (the owner of all other heavyweight belts) Oleksandr Usyk said clearly that he is not available until February-March of next year. Tyson does not want to sit idle. He wants to fight. And since he needs a decent preparation for this fight, he offered Joshua a fight. It is for this reason that there can be no question of postponing the fight with him to the end of December. We start from the situation with Usyk. We will not make any compromises on the date.”

Earlier, a British expert said Fury should agree to Joshua’s terms. And the manager of the Ukrainian Egis Klimas called Tyson a laughingstock.
