Tyson Fury And Anthony Joshua Finally Agree Date For £150m Mega-fight

Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will clash in Saudi Arabia on August 14 – only if Fury is happy with his contract.

Fury had cast doubt over the fight taking place at all earlier this week when his promoter Frank Warren revealed he was unhappy with the terms of the deal.

That forced Joshua to speak out and demand a resolution – and although negotiations are continuing, Warren is now confident an agreement will be reached.

He told talkSPORT: “It definitely won’t be on August 7 because that’s when the Olympic games are on and that’s gonna be a problem for TV.

Besides that, you’ve got a UFC PPV in the States and UK so if it goes on, it’ll be on August 14.

“I don’t think the date is the problem at all, I think everyone’s agreed that can be moved to August 14.”

Fury and Joshua agreed financial terms for a two-fight deal last summer but subsequent negotiations have dragged on for several months since they began earlier this year.

Warren has sought assurances over the finances of the deal – but is confident the rivals will meet this summer to crown the first undisputed heavyweight world champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999.

What we’re all trying to do is get this over the line, but the only way we’ll get it over the line is by the fighter, Tyson, getting certain assurances,” he added.

“If he gets them, he’ll put pen to paper, but as it is now, he’s waiting for the other side’s lawyers to confirm what he wants.

“We want the fight, everybody wants the fight, for once Eddie Hearn and I agree that we have a common aim here.

“But it hasn’t been signed, I don’t know why he’s saying it has been signed…

“There have to be assurances given and confirmation given that Tyson is happy with.

“It’s no different to if it were a footballer going to a football club, he would want certain assurances.
