Frank Warren, promoter of Tyson fury, said he will believe that the fight against Anthony Joshua it will take place when it is formally announced, after months of intense negotiations.
“Look, the newspaper tells me like, ‘It’s already published,” he said in an interview with talkSPORT. “(The offer) has not arrived and there we are. I will believe it when I see it.

Eddie hearn, President of Matchroom and promoter of AJ, He assured in previous days that the only thing missing was to specify the headquarters, but that everything else had already been resolved.
“We all want the fight,” he considered Warren. “We are all working, moving heaven and earth to achieve it on the line, but so far the offer has not arrived. Perhaps the two of you will have to review, if the offer does not arrive, see how to make it viable. Perhaps it is necessary to reevaluate the level of expectation of all ”.
Regarding the report that emerged in which he affirmed that the agreement that was signed was for 150 million dollars, Frank he was skeptical.
“Until you see it, it is not there,” he said. “Until something is signed, confirmed, whatever the number is, it’s not there. We can talk all day, it’s not there.
