Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua: Eddie Hearn claims Fury did not provide a contract for the September fight.
Tyson Fury, the British world heavyweight champion, has not submitted a contract to Anthony Joshua, who is planning a fight in September.
Fury, 34, stated on Friday that he would like to meet Joshua at Wembley Stadium and had already provided a draft contract.
However, promoter Eddie Hearn stated that Fury’s team had simply “reached out” and that no contract had been sent.
Queensberry promoter George Warren subsequently explained that a “formal offer” had been emailed to Team Joshua.
Hearn went on to say that he was trying to set up a fight for Joshua in August, followed by one with Deontay Wilder in December, and that he was “not willing to change those plans.”
Fury hasn’t fought since retaining his WBC belt against Derek Chisora in December at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

On Instagram, he stated that a battle with Joshua, the 33-year-old two-time world champion, is “a fight everyone wants to see, including myself.”
Fury set a deadline in September that was not met, and at the time stated, “It’s officially over for Joshua.” He’s out in the cold with the wolfpack now.”
A bout with Oleksandr Usyk, the IBF, IBO, WBO, and WBA champion, was planned for 2023 but fell through.
Fury has 33 victories and one draw from 34 fights, while Joshua has 25 wins and three loses in his 28-fight professional record after winning Olympic gold as an amateur in 2012.
