Anthony Joshua’s team have finally accepted terms proposed by Tyson Fury ahead of a potential fight on December 3.
Joshua’s 258 Management and Matchroom revealed this on Tuesday claiming that communication had been halted due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and that they were waiting for a response from Fury’s team.
In his response,Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, simply replied: “Contract will be with you very soon.”
Fury recently challenged Joshua to a long-awaited all-British showdown and offered the two-time world champion a 60-40 purse, after it emerged a prospective undisputed clash against Oleksandr Usyk would likely have to wait until 2023.
The 34-year-old chose November 26 at Wembley or December 3 at Cardiff as potential dates for the fight.
The fight is expected to hold at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
Joshua lost his belts to Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk in 2021, and failed in his attempt to reclaim them last month, as Uysk outboxed him.
