The fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua has been off after Joshua failed to sign contract.

The expected fight between British boxers Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua has been officially off after the Joshua failed to sign the contract.

Fury has become frustrated with what he perceives to be a lack of movement from Joshua’s camp and set the take-it-or-leave-it 5pm deadline to the Watford-born fighter.

But the Gypsy King posted a video on Instagram just minutes after the cut-off passed and revealed he was yet to receive Joshua’s signature, and will be moving on to fight somebody else.

“Well guys, it’s official: D-Day has come and gone,” Fury said on social media.

“It’s gone past 5 o’clock [on] Monday, no contract has been signed. It’s officially over for Joshua. He is now out in the cold with the wolfpack. Forget about it.

“Idiot, coward, s*** house bodybuilder. Always knew it, always knew you didn’t have the minerals to fight the Gypsy King.

“Regardless of what the f*** you say now, I don’t really care. Good luck with your career and your life. End of.”

Earlier in the day, Fury’s promoter Frank Warren was still confident that Joshua would meet Fury’s deadline and agree to the terms of their blockbuster fight as he felt that negotiations were on the right track, but it now seems that Fury will seek an alternative opponent.

“The only person who can stop this fight from happening, to be quite honest, is Anthony Joshua,” Warren told talkSPORT.

“We’ve given them nearly everything they wanted, over and above for a guy who is coming off of two losses. So, let’s just get it on. Or if you don’t want the fight, just say so and we can move on. We want it.

“On Monday, I think we’re going to have a meeting and see where it goes from there. We want the fight. I want the fight. I desperately want to get that fight on. Tyson wants it, that’s why such a generous offer was made.”
