Tyson Fury confirms new Anthony Joshua talks, sends AJ draft contract for September fight at Wembley
Tyson Fury has revealed he has sent Anthony Joshua a draft contract as they are once again in talks for a fight.
The fight is said to take place at Wembley Stadium in September and follows earlier talk that collapsed of a clash late last year.
Fury was last in action in December when he beat Derek Chisora, with Joshua winning his comeback fight against Jermaine Franklin in April.
However, the boxing giants could come face to face later this year.
On Instagram, Fury said: “A few days ago I sent a draft contract to @anthonyjoshua for a fight in September @wembleystadium this is a fight everyone wants to see including myself.
“Come on from AJ, let’s give the world what it wants to see. This time I’m not going to make a million videos and keep putting the pressure on. The ball is on your side now.
Fury and Joshua had in fact signed contracts to fight in August 2021 in Saudi Arabia for the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles.
However, the fight could not take place due to Deontay Wilder’s legal arbitration victory, with him and Fury ultimately having a trilogy clash instead.
Following his win over Chisora five months ago, the Gypsy King held talks with Oleksandr Usyk for a fight that would take place in April.
However, they fell apart in March, so Fury has yet to fight in 2023.
Usyk’s promoter Alex Krassyuk told talkSPORT: “The fight is off.
“The reason for that is that it went too far. There was a feeling that after Usyk went 70-30, Tyson Fury started thinking he could put a saddle around his neck and start to ride Usyk as much as he could.
“That’s not true. I mean, Usyk accepted the 70-30 split out of courtesy. He was so loyal and he was so willing to make this fight happen. But the fight isn’t about Tyson Fury , the fight is for the WBC belt which is pending in his collection.
