Tyson Fury ‘signs contract for Anthony Joshua fight in unnamed country’ but Frank Warren says AJ doesn’t want it – The Sun

FRANK WARREN claimed Tyson Fury has signed his side of the deal to fight Anthony Joshua in a unification bout in an unnamed country.

But Fury’s promoter admitted his fears that the Brit, 30, does not want to face the Gypsy King, 31, anytime soon.

When asked about the possibility of Fury fighting AJ, Warren said on Good Morning Britain: “Look we’ve got no problem with it.

“We’ve signed an NDA with a country that are hopefully about to make the fight happen.

“I don’t think the other side want it. I’ve got a feeling in my bones that they do not want the fight.”

When asked the same question by GMB host Piers Morgan, Fury admitted he expects to fight Deontay Wilder first.

The Gypsy King snatched the WBC belt from the American in February after he beat him in their rematch.

He replied: “Deontay Wilder has still got that third fight he’s got take.”

When asked if he thinks the Bronze Bomber will go ahead with the trilogy fight, the 31-year-old said: “He will do and he will take the fight for one reason – money.

“There’s a hell of a lot of money on the table. He’s got eight or nine kids to feed.”

Warren has previously insisted that the unification fight between Fury and Joshua is “not a difficult fight to make.”

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “It’s not a difficult fight to make. Whatever is on the table is 50-50.

“Fury is the No1 heavyweight but we don’t say 60-40. 50-50 down the middle.

“Once we get the offer that we’re supposed to be getting, we’ll be in a position to sit around a table and knock it into shape.”

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has admitted he is very confident of landing a deal to secure back-to-back Joshua versus Fury fights next year.
