Tyson Fury says he is expecting his heavyweight unification fight with Anthony Joshua to be announced this week. Representatives from Fury and Joshua’s teams have been in talks for several weeks.

“I’m waiting,” Fury told Behind The Gloves on Monday. “I’ve been told there’s a few good offers on the table from a few different counties, which is exciting news.

“I’ve always been quite sceptical about it all. But I’ve been told there’s a few good offers on the table from a few major players. I’m interested and excited to see if they’re feasible and if we can make it happen. If I don’t know anything by Tuesday, I’m just going to move on, because it’s been a long time in the making.

“I think it will 100 per cent happen, a million per cent. I think we will know where and when over the next few days. I’m confident it will be made. I want the fight to be announced this week.”

Fury also slammed former rival, Deontay Wilder, over his ‘excuses’ and ‘cheating’ accusations since they last fought.

“It’s a hurtful and resentful what he’s been saying, it’s not anything I’d say without concrete evidence,” Fury said. “It’s disrespectful and dishonourable. As a champion, he’s let himself down. He couldn’t accept defeat as a champion would or a real man of honour would. He’s had to make a million excuses and then accused me of cheating. It’s absolutely ridiculous.”
