The Queensberry promoter continued, “I just want to get the fight on. It’s a fight you know I really fancy Tyson to win and we just want to get it as soon as possible and there’s no resistance from Arum. He is just making sure that everybody gets their contractual commitments agreed.”

Although Tyson Fury still has a relevant opponent in former WBC champion Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua remains as his most preferred opponent.
