Warren sees no reason why Fury vs Joshua won’t happen

Eddie Hearn, who has overseen AJ’s career since turning pro in 2013, insists there is “zero chance” the fight will be over by this deadline.

However, his longtime rival disagrees and believes their next meeting should be enough to resolve any minor issues that have delayed the ‘Battle of Britain’ formalization on December 3 at the Principality Stadium. from Cardiff.

“To be completely honest, the only person who can stop this fight from happening is Anthony Joshua,” Warren told talkSPORT in Manchester during Joe Joyce v Joseph Parker.

“We gave them almost everything they wanted, plus for a guy coming off of two losses. So let’s go. Or if you don’t want the fight, just say so and we can move on. We want it!

“On Monday, I think we’ll have a meeting and see where it goes from there. We want the fight. I want the fight. I desperately want to continue this fight. Tyson wants it, which is why such a generous offer was made.

Hearn said the contract sent to him for the fight nine days ago was “all over the place,” but Warren is confident his team has ironed out any issues with the deal.

“I hope we get him over the line. I’m optimistic at the moment because we’ve satisfied every single thing they’ve raised,” he added.

“For me, these are trivial things. All this, for example, the budget for the undercard or the review of contracts. They can be involved in all aspects of the show, we have no problem with that.

“Like I said, there’s a meeting on Monday and hopefully we can get it through.”

If fight talks between the two teams break down, it looks like Fury already has a backup opponent ready to go.

Manuel Charr has been loudly calling for a fight with Fury on social media and many believe he’ll be the one to get the next WBC title shot later this year.
