Anthony Joshua has received contracts for Tyson Fury fight, Frank Warren reveals



“The next step was sending over the contracts which we promised Joshua would arrive soon. I don’t anticipate there will be any problems. We all want this fight to happen.”

Fury made the offer to Joshua in a social media video earlier this month after Oleksandr Usyk, who beat Joshua for a second time last month, indicated he will not fight again this year.

Joshua’s management team, 258, responded in a statement that they accepted all the terms and looked forward to future developments.

For years we’ve wanted this to happen and we were close before but now seems to be the time it will finally happen

Some may argue that the two consecutive defeats suffered by Joshua make the bout slightly less appealing than at various points when it has been close in previous years.

But Warren said: “The WBC title will be on the line but this will be as much about the bragging rights between the pair.

“For years we’ve wanted this to happen and we were close before but now seems to be the time it will finally happen.”
