Boxing: The Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury bout is in jeopardy: Here’s what we know so far

Eeven though both sides have already agreed to fight, the Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury bout might not happen at all. Indications that the fight could end up crumbling down are very real and many experts think some petty stuff will prevent this event from taking place. For starters, all indications point to Eddie Hearn not liking the idea of Tyson Fury fighting one of his biggest cash cows.

Coming fresh out of two consecutive defeats against Oleksandr Usyk, Joshua’s pride has been affected on a deeper level than previously anticipated. Losing a third straight time won’t be good for business and Eddie Hearn knows this. The British promoter needs to protect one of his biggest investments from the last decade.

Frank Warren wanrs nothing is signed yet

Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren recently spoke to the folks at TalkSport and revealed that the verbal agreement is in place. However, he also confirmed that nothing has been signed yet and the fight can still be canceled. Here’s what he said: “No. It’s not signed yet. We’re waiting for them to come back to us. But I don’t see any reason why it shouldn’t be signed.

“The main crux of the negotiations are the splits which are agreed – 60/40. There’s a rematch clause which is agreed – 50/50. The big problem was when the fight would take place, it’s December. To give everybody comfort we’ve even said that they can be involved in all the broadcast contracts, sponsorships and everything, so they can see that everything’s above board.”

These statements left many boxing experts puzzled despite Eddie Hearn’s recent update where he tells the press that the fight is still on. But former Cruiserweight Johnny Nelson is not convinced, this is what he told Subway about the possible fight: “I’m not confident if I’m honest. My feeling is, we have heard it from both fighters now, we have heard things from both camps.

Tyson put the offer out there, we don’t know whether it was a bluff or not, and Anthony Joshua took it. They have agreed to it. It could be petty stuff like ticket allocation, whose name is first, who is allowed to post what on social media. Petty stuff. And when it comes to that sort of stuff, these can be deal breakers.”
