. Read More Why is Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia? How money and Covid-19 decided the fight venue “And we’ve got a contract at the moment that all the parties don’t agree on. We’ve got a contract at the moment that Tyson Fury will not sign.“One of the things in that contract that will enable us to get over the hump is the guarantees. If the guarantees are there, then it’s not a problem.“That’s where it is. I’m not going down the road of where the fight’s going to take place, who those negotiations are with because it’s all moot at the moment.”Joshua, who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts, posted a rare tweet aimed directly at Fury last Monday, referring to his rival’s assertion in a podcast that he was a “Spartan” devoted to fighting and little else.“I’m tired,” Joshua wrote, tagging Fury himself.“My fans are tired. Your fans are tired. We’re all tired of the talk. Less talk. More action!”Fury was quick to respond in kind by asking Joshua to “come get some then you big ugly Dosser????”He added: “YOUR [sic] NO TALK NO ACTION.”Last weekend in Texas, where Eddie Hearn welcomed 70,000 into the AT&T Stadium to watch Canelo Alvarez stop Billy Joe Saunders, the Matchroom promoter confidently asserted that an announcement on “the date, the venue and the confirmation” would follow this week, with news certainly broken before his next card in Manchester on Saturday.While that deadline passed with no official confirmation, Fury’s announcement at least appears to have moved things one step closer.
