Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed he had sent the first draft of the contract to Bob Arum and Frank Warren for the heavyweight blockbuster with Tyson Fury. Fury holds WBC belt, while his compatriot Joshua holds IBF, WBA and WBO titles.
“The first draft of the contract has now gone out to Bob Arum, which is obviously a good thing,” Hearn told the Daily Mail. “The contract reflects the positive nature of the discussions we have had so far around this fight.
“We now await their comments before we all move on to agreeing a location. We hope to have something signed within the next two weeks.”
The fighters reportedly have agreed to a 50/50 split for the first meeting with a 60/40 one for a return clash. Saudi Arabia remains the favourite to host the clash. The UK has been ruled out as there is little chance of a full stadium in time for a June fight date.
