Joshua to fight Fury come Dec 3
Ahead of a prospective all-British superfight on December 3, Anthony Joshua's management has stated that they have accepted the conditions presented by Tyson Fury's side.
On Tuesday, Joshua's 258 Management and Matchroom posted on social media that they had suspended communication as a because of Queen Elizabeth II's demise and were now waiting for a response.
"258 and @MatchroomBoxing can confirm, on behalf of @anthonyjoshua, that we accepted all terms provided to us by Fury's camp for a fight on December 3rd last Friday," the statement stated.
“Due to the Queen’s passing, it was agreed to halt all communication.
“We are awaiting a response.”
Joshua then retweeted the post on Twitter with his official account.
Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, has since replied, “Contract will be with you very soon.”
After learning that a potential undisputed fight against Oleksandr Usyk would likely have to wait until 2023, Fury recently challenged Joshua to a long-awaited confrontation and offered the two-time world champion a 60-40 payout.
The battle might perhaps take place on November 26 at Wembley or December 3 at Cardiff, according to the 34-year-old at first.
The Gypsy King celebrated his return to the UK by knocking out Dillian Whyte in the sixth round at Wembley in April. He then reiterated his intention to retire before announcing to the WBC at the end of the previous month that he would be picking up boxing again.
