The storyline centering on the probable clash between Britain’s biggest rivals, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, was floating for a few weeks. But the recent move by the WBC heavyweight champion, has again created chaos in the division.

Michael Benson of talkSPORT, reported it on Twitter.

He wrote, “Tyson Fury has now declared that he will move on from the Anthony Joshua fight if AJ does not sign the contract by Monday.”

After Anthony Joshua’s defeat in the rematch, Fury gave an opportunity to him. He offered AJ to square off with him at the Wembley Stadium, for the WBC title in December. In return, Joshua asked ‘The Gypsy King’ to bring the deal to the table.

No one knows what happened backstage, but a few days later, another update informed AJ has agreed to the terms of Fury.

Now again, Fury is moving ahead of this fight. He has given an ultimatum to the former unified heavyweight champion. As soon as this update circulated on social media, it captured fans’ attention. They criticized Fury’s move because since announcing his comeback, Joshua would be the third fighter. Fury called and now move away from him.

How did fans react to Tyson Fury?

A fan wrote, “Absolute fraud this bloke. The contract was sent about a week ago. When have you have heard of a super fight being made in the space of a week. He did this to make the public think he wanted it.”

No doubt, Fury wants everything on his terms without understanding the other person. He needs to give some more time to Joshua to introspect over it.

Another fan wrote, “Never wanted the fight. All smoke and mirrors from Fury again. AJ called his bluff.”

Another fan added, “One guy is out on social media calling him out and the other guy is posting about Waze. But you AJ fanboy’s are still believing your boy? Unbelievable.”

Another fan tried to guess the problem in purse distribution. He wrote, “Already agreed to a 60/40 split. So what’s your next excuse.”
