“I’m not waiting around for some guy who’s lost three of his last five fights” – Tyson Fury

“I’m not waiting around for some guy who’s lost three of his last five fights” – Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, has given Anthony Joshua an ultimatum to agree to the terms of their bout, or it will not take place.

Despite Joshua’s recent loss to Oleksandr Usyk, Fury, the unbeaten lineal world heavyweight champion, offered Joshua the chance to fight him in December of this year with the possibility of winning championship belts.

Given that Joshua is competing without any belts, Fury generously offered Joshua a 60-40% money share in Fury’s favour in the contract.

Although it is understood that the talks between the competing promoters have gone smoothly so far, Fury insists that time is of the importance if a significant fight is to take place by early December.

“We’ll know by Monday anyway [if the super-fight is on] because if it’s not done by Monday I’m moving on,” Fury told Queensberry promotions on Saturday night, September 24..

“I was optimistic about three weeks ago but it shouldn’t be taking this long to sign a contract.

“I’m not waiting around for some guy who’s lost three of his last five fights. He’s lucky that I’m giving him a world title shot. If not he’ll have to wait a long time to get another one,” Fury added.
