Tyson Fury sends ‘draft contract’ to Anthony Joshua for UK fight in September
Tyson Fury has confirmed that he has sent a ‘draft contract’ to Anthony Joshua for a blockbuster showdown in September in the UK.
Fury vs. Joshua is back in talks as promoters George Warren and Eddie Hearn have revisited the discussion after the all-British clash collapsed last year.
The self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ has told his team to push for a fight against Joshua, who returned to the win column following his victory over Jermaine Franklin in April.
The WBC world heavyweight champion has confirmed a ‘draft contract’ has been sent to Joshua’s camp ahead of a September fight at Wembley Stadium.
“A few days ago i sent a draft contract to @anthonyjoshua for a fight in September @wembleystadium its a fight that everyone wants to see including myself. Come of AJ lets give the world,” he wrote on Instagram.
“What they want to see. This time im not gonna make a million vids & keep putting pressure on. the ball is now on your side…”
Fury hasn’t fought since his TKO victory over Derek Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last December.
He had been in talks to face WBA (super), WBO and IBF title holder Oleksandr Usyk until negotiations broke down.
The 34-year-old Brit is eager to return to action as he eyes a bout against his domestic rival.
Joshua, meanwhile, has been linked with a fight against former foe Dillian Whyte, which is being explored for August 12 in the UK.
The former unified world champion already boasts a victory over Whyte, having stopped him in their December 2015 meeting. Whyte has a victory over Joshua in the amateur ranks.
