Tyson Fury's promoter Frank Warren claims, Anthony Joshua not truly keen on a heavyweight unification fight with "The Gypsy King". The long-awaited meeting between the boxers moved a step closer when Fury beat Deontay Wilder to claim the WBC heavyweight title.
COVID-19, however, has led to fights between Fury-Wilder and Joshua-Kubrat Pulev being delayed. And both bouts are currently up in the air.
That uncertainty has prompted Fury's representatives, MTK Global, to field offers from the Middle East for a lucrative showdown with Joshua.
“Should a pathway eventually clear towards making Tyson v AJ actually become a reality, it will be very interesting to see if both parties truly want the fight,” Warren wrote in his Metro column.
“I know Tyson does and we do. With Team Joshua I am just not so sure they are as keen as they make out. We’ll have to wait and see.”
Warren was also quick to dismiss the notion of both camps being in negotiations. He said: “There has been some discussions going on with various sites interested in staging the fight, but no concrete offers have been submitted. In the absence of this, there have been no negotiations regarding the potential fight.”
