Frank Warren has told talkSPORT that a necessary agreement for the Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury site deal is still yet to come through. Contracts are signed for the fight deal but the date and venue are yet to be officially confirmed.
Warren told talkSPORT Fight Night: “Look, every day I’m being told – it’s like, ‘It’s in the post.’ It’s not arrived and that’s where we are. I’ll believe it when I see it.
“We’re being told it’ll be here. I know Tyson’s had enough of hanging around. He wants to fight in June or July and that’s what will happen if this thing doesn’t get resolved very quickly.
“We all want the fight. We’re all working, moving heaven and Earth to get it over the line, but at the moment the offer hasn’t come through. Maybe the two guys have gotta look – if the offer doesn’t come through – to look at how we make this fight viable. Everyone’s expectation levels maybe have to reassess.”
When asked about reports that the deal is upward of $150m, Warren replied: “Until I see it, it’s not there. Until something’s signed, confirmed, whatever the number’s gonna be, it’s not there.
“We can talk all day long, it’s not there. It’s not gonna take place in June or July, that’s not happening and the only way we can only be realistic about this, saying it’s happening, is if we actually get a binding agreement. That’s what we want, a binding agreement.”
