“We’ve all agreed to announce any news simultaneously, so I can’t break a confidence I’ve agreed to. It’s absolutely moving in the right direction and everybody is on the same page. Nobody is more frustrated than the fighters and us, we’ve worked like you cannot believe to get this over the line.

I think Tyson is a bit peed off about it because it’s dragging on and on and on. Hopefully, everybody will be getting the good news soon, they’ll be happy and everyone can more onto the next stage of this, which is to get this site sorted out,” said Warren.

The fight date still concerns a lot of fans, but Warren has an update for that too.
