Tyson Fury has confirmed that the fight against Anthony Joshua will go ahead; agreement has been made but Joshua is yet to sign.

British boxer Tyson Fury has confirmed that the fight against former heavyweight Champions Anthony Joshua is now alive.

Fury took to his social media to confirm that talk is ongoing and the final decision rest on Joshua as they wait for him to sign the contract.

Days back Fury stated that the expected match between him and Joshua was dead after the deadline he set was not met.

Fury then insisted he was planning to take on Manuel Charr on the proposed date of December 3 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

However, now hopes of an all-British showdown have been reignited by Fury’s lengthy video on social media on Thursday in which he reveals talks with Joshua’s representatives are still very much alive.

Speaking on Twitter, he said: “Right, Anthony Joshua, where do we start?

“So, the deadline was Monday. Frank Warren asked me and convinced me to let it carry on for a couple of days – and today’s Thursday.

“And even though I knew you weren’t going to sign this contract, I allowed Frank to continue doing meetings with your team and your broadcasters and all that.

“Now we have BT, DAZN and ESPN all on the same page. They are happy with everything. They are ready to rock and roll.

“You guys asked for a lot of stuff. You want to be co-promoters when you’re a voluntary challenger. Guess what? I said ‘give it them’.

“You wanted full transparency even though you’re not an equal shareholder in this party. Do you know what I said? ‘Give them full transparency’. I’ve got nothing to hide, I’m not trying to rob anybody.”

Fury and Joshua have already agreed on a 60/40 percentage which is in favour of the WBC champion.

He feels there are no more issues to be sorted, with his team simply waiting for Joshua to sign.

He continued: “So now you’ve got full transparency, everything is clean and fair.

“Now Joshua, the ball is really in your court, son. Everybody is done. If you’re a man, and if you’ve got any dignity or pride about you, you’ll get this contract signed today.

“This is it. There’s no more days, weeks, months. You’ve had the contract now for over two weeks and you still haven’t signed it.

“Show the public that you’re really the big coward that I know you are and don’t sign it. I don’t care either way if you sign it or you don’t – it makes no difference to me at all.

“You’re a beaten man and I’m a world champion. I’m chucking you a massive bone, but I know I can punch your face in so I’m willing to give you an opportunity.

“There’s nothing more to do. Everyone is happy. Get your team onto mine. They will be available all day like they’ve been available the last two weeks.

“Get this contract signed today, you big p**** and let the British fans have what they want.

“There’s no more running, you have to fight me. You cannot escape. The Fury is coming, b****.”

Fury and Joshua have been linked with a fight for several years, but it never finalized.

Since then, Fury has beaten Wilder and Dillian Whyte, while Joshua has lost twice to Oleksandr Usyk.
