The Daily Starthat this week Joshua said that he supposedly does not like that Fury has the last word on controversial topics.

“We said, ‘OK, let’s put in someone independent to have the final say on any issues that are controversial.’ But they didn’t respond to the offer, ”says Frank.

“At the time of this writing, there is still silence on the radio from them, no return calls or emails (except that Eddie spoke to the press on Thursday, saying they will send the contract on Thursday; it has not yet arrived!) . I thought everyone wanted to have a fight, but now I’m not sure. I remember Shelly Finkel sent us a contract for Tyson’s first fight with Wilder. The contract was revised several times and was signed in 48 hours, ”Warren laments.

According to him, Tyson “turned heaven and earth to make the fight happen.”

Warren explains Tyson’s mysterious fickleness

“Actions mean more than words. Eddie saying something about how Tyson sets deadlines may look cute on camera, but the reality is that when they tell you “We’re sending you something” and nothing comes up, what reaction do they expected from Tyson?” — wrote the promoter.

On September 29, Tyson went live and stated that negotiations with the Joshua team, at the insistence of promoter Frank Warren, would continue.
