Tyson Fury’s promoter Bob Arum is confident about agreeing on a fight with Anthony Joshua. The US promoter hopes to sign a contract within two weeks. 

Fury, who is a WBC Champion, has been in talks with Joshua the WBA, IBF and WBO belt holder. Arum is hopeful that the Joshua fight will soon be confirmed.

Arum told Sky Sports News: “I don’t want to make a deadline, but I just can report that everything so far has been going splendidly, and we hope to have a signed document within the next couple of weeks.

“That might not provide for a site, because again, we can have a document that the fighters would have signed, and everything, and then have a mutual agreement clause of the site.

“We’re all on the same page, as far as I can see. I’m 95 per cent confident the fight happens, and I’m 100 per cent confident that my guy wins, and wins by knockout.”
