Joshua took to social media to accept the idea, saying he would be willing to drop his plans for comeback fights after his losses to Oleksandr Usyk if Fury is serious.

AJ promoter Eddie Hearn joined talkSPORT on Tuesday morning and expressed his doubts but insisted they would fight if a serious and acceptable offer was received.

Warren has now told talkSPORT that’s exactly what he’ll be sending them over the next few hours.

“We are sending them a written offer today,” Warren told White and Jordan on talkSPORT, “My son George spoke with Eddie Hearn yesterday.

“We were the ones who made the approach to give AJ a great opportunity to get back to the top level against world champion Tyson.

“He’s prepared to make that voluntary defense, so we’ll send the offer out today and then they’ll have to look at it and decide if they want to take this with both hands.”

Asked when that fight will be, Warren replied, “In the UK and hopefully in November, that’s what we’re looking at.”

Regarding the terms of the financial purse allocation of the offer, he added: “I could tell you, but I’m not going to tell you.

“They haven’t even seen the terms yet, so I’m definitely not going to discuss it publicly…

“The terms that we are going to offer are, I think, very, very fair.

“We will put it in writing and then they can make their decision.

“We’re talking about being very, very fair.

“Tyson is extremely fair and if and when they come out, if they want to publicize them, you’ll all be shocked.”

Warren concluded, “I think now is the perfect time for AJ to accept it.

“For him to get back into a mandatory position or fight for a world title is going to take a long time for him, so he should grab that with both hands in my opinion.

“But to his credit, he came out saying he was in.

“I’m not saying anything bad about them or the other side, all we care about is making this fight.”
