Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury: We will make fight happen, says Frank Warren –
Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren says if fans want to see a unification fight with Anthony Joshua “we will make it happen”.
The British heavyweights now hold all of the division’s belts between them, after Fury, 31, beat Deontay Wilder, 34, on Sunday to claim the WBC title.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said on Monday that “this fight will happen”.
“Of course we want to see the fight,” Warren told BBC Sport. “We’ve been trying to make it for two years.”
“Hearn kept saying was it’s got to be 70/30 [the purse] in favour of AJ and so on and so fourth.
“The tables have turned now. I have no problem with 50/50. I think Tyson would deserve more but 50/50, no problem.
“This is about the boxers and more importantly the fans. If they want to see the fight we will make it happen.
“In the meantime Eddie Hearn is acting like the guy standing outside your house with his nose pressed up against the window and keeps spouting off about Tyson.”
