Tyson Fury created polls across his social media accounts on Friday afternoon, asking his fans whether they believe Anthony Joshua will sign to face him next. The fight between the two heavyweight titans appears to be closing in on a done deal.

Fury tweeted: “Does AJ have the balls to fight me?”

There were two options on the poll for his fans – “Yes he does and will,” or, “No he will find a way out.”

A slight majority voted for the negative option on each platform.

Regardless, AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn has said that the fight will happen. Hearn told the Boxing News Podcast: “There will be some [minor issues] when you go down to the changing rooms and that. But that’s stuff that you work through to resolve it. When you talk about Deontay Wilder vs Joshua [negotiations], we never even had a draft contact.

“With this it’s – all the points have been discussed, the contract’s been drafted, it’s been received, it’s going backwards and forwards with minor points. I actually don’t see any way this fight falls apart. Subject to the world just falling on its a***, which can happen! But we have no Plan B, which is quite unusual.

“Normally you’d go, ‘If this don’t go through, we’ll take this fight or we’ll do that.’ We are just like, ‘This is happening.’ And he is in exactly the same boat. Fury ain’t looking at any other fight, nor are Top Rank and we’re not either.”
