Frank Warren is enraged by the Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury bout announcement, stating that he is “not delighted.”
Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua have agreed to a two-fight contract.
After Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn claimed that a deal had been signed for Fury to face Joshua, Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren slammed him. Warren is “not happy” since the two parties had agreed on a joint announcement, according to Warren, who stated on Monday that both boxers had signed a two-fight pact.
“We’d like to get a site contract confirmed in the next month,” Hearn told ESPN.
“Getting everyone to put pen to paper is often the most difficult aspect. However, all parties put in a lot of work to get this done. There were rival promoters, networks, and fighters.
Warren now claims that Hearn’s declaration was “very unexpected,” but admits that “there is nothing we can do.”
Warren told talkSPORT: “Everyone signed an agreement that no announcements would be made unless they were joint announcements, and it came out of nowhere yesterday.”
“We’re all upset, but it’s out there now, and there’s nothing we can do about it.”
“However, we still have a long way to go in terms of venue selection.
“We’re looking at a few of sites, and that’s where we’re at right now.
“When they get in the ring, I believe it will happen. We still have a long way to go. But, in order for this to function, everyone must be on the same page.
“Right now, we’re all working together to find a venue.”
For the first time, the WBA, WBO, IBF, and WBC heavyweight belts will all be on the line in the same fight.
“It is, without a doubt, the biggest bout in British boxing history,” Warren remarked.
“It doesn’t get any better than two guys who hold every world title between them, both Brits, and it doesn’t get any better than that. It’s enormous. Nothing comes close.
“I’ve been in a lot of big battles over the years, but nothing compares to the magnitude of this one. The same is true in world boxing.
“Everyone talks about when the fight is going to be on when you talk to them.
“Hopefully, everything will happen today, and everyone’s dream will be granted.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
