Anthony Joshua criticizes Tyson Fury amid new £150 million fight postponements, saying he is “tired of the chatter.”
Anthony Joshua has instructed Tyson Fury to sign the contract for their £150 million fight in Saudi Arabia.
Tyson Fury has been warned by Anthony Joshua that he is tired of waiting for the 32-year-old to sign the deal for their heavyweight unification fight. Despite Fury purportedly pausing over concerns over the amount of money he would be guaranteed, Eddie Hearn has vowed that the fight will go ahead.
Fury, a two-time heavyweight champion, already agreed a two-fight deal with Joshua, the first of which will take place in Saudi Arabia in July or August this year.
Organizing the £150 million bout, however, has been challenging amid the pandemic. The contract has yet to be signed by Fury.
Fans have been waiting months for an official announcement, and the ongoing delays are threatening to prevent the first fight from taking place this summer.
Joshua, a two-division heavyweight champion, has now turned to Twitter to ensure that the fight takes place, informing Fury that he and his fans are sick of waiting.
On social media, Fury has lately mocked Joshua. He claimed in a video that if Joshua lasted more than three rounds, he would resign on his stool.
“Spartan. I’m exhausted. My admirers have had enough of me. Joshua said on social media, “Your fans are tired.”
“We’re all sick of hearing about it. There will be less talking. “There must be more action!”
Joshua hasn’t fought since his December victory against Kubrat Pulev. To defend his WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles, he knocked out the Bulgarian in round nine.
My admirers have had enough of me.
Your fans are fed up with you.
We’re all sick of hearing about it.
There will be less talking. More action, please! @Tyson Fury.
Fury’s most recent fight was a win against Deontay Wilder in February.
The latest spat erupted after Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, slammed a claim made by Fury’s promoter, Bob Arum, that the bout was off.
“Fury is here, and he wants to fight. Hearn stated, “Fury’s counsel is well aware that this agreement is done.”
“Don’t get me wrong: if we were having this conversation next week, I’d be concerned, but we’ve been here before, so I’m not.
“We’ve made a pledge. For me, it’s a foregone conclusion.
“A lot of it is him putting the strain on himself because he is under pressure to provide a fight for Fury, and the other element is ego.
“He made an attempt.” Brinkwire Summary News.
