Tyson Fury gives ultimatum to Anthony Joshua

WBC champion, Tyson Fury, has asked Anthony Joshua to sign the contract for their all-British heavyweight battle by Monday or the fight is off.

Fury who appears to be running out of patience wondered why it is taking so long for the contract to be signed

“I’m not waiting around for some guy who’s lost three of his last five fights. He’s lucky that I’m giving him a world title shot. If not he’ll have to wait a long time to get another one. We’ll know by Monday anyway [if the super-fight is on] because if it’s not done by Monday I’m moving on,” Fury said in a video posted on the Twitter feed of Queensberry Promotions.

Last week, Joshua’s camp received a contract based upon a 60-40 split in Fury’s favour.

But time is of the essence if a major fight is to take place by early December.
