After sending documents to Joshua’s camp, Fury then set a deadline of 5 p.m. Monday night for the return of the completed contract, a deadline missed by AJ.

As a result, Fury took to social media and declared the fight over.

He said, “Well guys, it’s official, D-Day is over. It passed 5 p.m. Monday, no contract was signed.

“It’s officially over for Joshua, he’s now out in the cold with the wolf pack.

“Forget it, idiot, coward, s*** house, bodybuilder. He always knew it, he always knew he didn’t have the minerals to fight the Gypsy King.

“No matter what you say now, I don’t care. Good luck in your career and in your life, end of peace.

Warren revealed on Monday night that there is still hope that Fury and Joshua will fight.

But he sounded more optimistic when asked on talkSPORT Drive on Tuesday night for an update on the negotiations.

Speaking to Andy Goldstein and Darren Bent, Warren said: “This is the last word from Tyson and this is where we are.

“I haven’t even spoken to him today, he’s very, very disappointed, so we’ll see.

“For me, he set a deadline of ten days after the contract was sent and a few people said it didn’t make sense, but it’s ten days.

“You have a transfer deadline in football and sometimes there’s a last-minute scramble to get players and get it through, that’s what should have happened.

“We’ll see where it goes, but at the moment I feel like we’re where we are.”

Joshua had more than enough time to collect the paperwork, according to Warren
