Boxing fans have weighed in on Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury’s collapsed fight talks, as there are speculations that Tyson may decide to fight other boxers.
Current Heavyweight champion Fury announced plans to end his retirement by offering Joshua a fight on December 3 at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
Anthony Joshua accepted the fight but missed Fury’s proposed deadline to sign a contract. Without a contract, there is no fight.
George Warren, who is Fury’s chief negotiator for the fight, and Matchroom Boxing boss Hearn have both since expressed their doubts about the fight taking place.
Weighing in, some boxing fans have blamed Joshua’s team and others are accusing Fury of never being serious about the fight.
A fan wrote:
“Hearn is the master salesman, convincing AJ it’s not the right time, that they don’t need it, that the deals not right. All so he can milk a 3 fight run on DAZN against nobodies. AJ signed into a lifetime deal as well.”
“AJ’s team playing games this whole time. They had the contract for weeks and were still talking up to last week about commercial deals and having the final say. You’re the B-side. Fury can have a warm-up December and undisputed next year. AJ is finished now, he has no belts.”
“Fury told everyone it was off on multiple occasions before meetings to clarify things could even take place. He was causing problems and confusion from the get go. You can’t have proper discussions when your client obviously is thinking about other fights.”
