Tyson Fury’s British promoter Frank Warren insisted that “our door is open” to agree on the “fight he wants” against Anthony Joshua.

Fury (WBC) and Joshua (IBF, WBA and WBO) hold each major belt between them and Warren is in “talks in progress” with promoter Eddie Hearn to organize a fight that would crown the undisputed champion of the glamorous boxing division.

“It is not a difficult fight to do. Everything on the table is 50-50, “said Warren exclusively. Sky Sports.

“Fury is the No. 1 heavyweight, but we don’t say 60-40. 50-50 in the middle.

“Once we receive the offer we are supposed to receive, we will be able to sit around the table and get it in shape. It’s not about me or [Joshua’s promoter Hearn’s company] Matchroom. It’s about making this fight.

“If we can’t make it happen between us, then we have to point the finger at the one who doesn’t. “

Joshua first looks for a UK location to defend the mandatory title against Kubrat Pulev, while Fury is engaged in a third bout with Deontay Wilder.

Fury had already said Sky Sports: “All is well, God willing, we are starting the big fight with me and Joshua, the all-British showdown and I can give the fans what they want to see. “

Warren said, “I’m very excited about this fight. But the two fighters have contracts at the moment – AJ against Pulev and Fury against Wilder.

“If an offer appeared, that the Pulev fight was to be avoided, or our contracted Wilder fight was to be avoided, then we have to get there.” Let’s go.

“We were waiting for various offers. Nothing has happened yet. Discussions are ongoing.

“Fury? I know I speak for him – he wants the fight. More than anything, he wants the fight.

“I don’t think Matchroom wants the fight.

“All day long, Tyson Fury beats AJ.

“I had this conversation 18 months ago when Tyson returned. This is not a problem. This is the fight he wants.

“This is the first time that four belts have been contested in the heavyweight ring between two Britons. The # 1 heavyweight champion, undefeated, Tyson Fury is the most popular sportsman in the country right now. “

Bob Arum of Top Rank, who promotes Fury in the United States, Sky Sports: “If Fury beats Wilder and Joshua beats Pulev, which I don’t want because [I promote] Pulev, then we would go ahead and do Fury vs Joshua next year.

“I don’t think the negotiations would be difficult. We could negotiate the deal, if we met in person, over the course of a day.

“We are not known to play games. We understand Eddie. I worked for many years with his father Barry.

“My prediction would be: we will reach an agreement in one day. “

Joshua “would sign now” for two fights against Fury in 2021, Hearn previously said Sky Sports.

Warren replied, “There will have to be a rematch. But this is not an obstacle. There is no obstacle to stopping this fight. “

“Our door is open. We have all signed a confidentiality agreement. We are awaiting an offer.

“On our side, it’s not a problem. “

Joshua had already said Sky Sports: “Logically to prove yourself as No. 1, I have to fight Tyson Fury. He has to fight Anthony Joshua.

“What will it prove, me and him fighting? There will be a dominant figure in the heavyweight division who will have all the belts and become undisputed. “

Eddie Hearn: “Two combat agreements for next year? “

Warren insists that their dream encounter would be one-sided in favor of the WBC champion.

Said, “Does AJ have a better shot than Fury?” No.

“Is AJ a bigger puncher?” I do not think so.

“Does he have a better chin?” I do not think so.

“Does he have hand speed or Fury’s footwork?” I do not think so.

“Tyson is so good in all departments. When you saw him come out of the ground with this Wilder punch, that tells you what he’s talking about. “

Dillian Whyte, who faces Alexander Povetkin in a closed-door British location this summer, retains his status as a mandatory Fury challenger and should receive his belt shot by February 2021.

Whyte said Sky Sports: “If I was such an easy fight, why isn’t he in a hurry to fight? “
