Tyson Fury’s US Boxing promoter was talking on TalkSport during the week and reckons the fight is very near to competition
“I talked to Eddie yesterday. Eddie, with the Joshua people, will have the first draft of the contract to us on Tuesday.
“And then I will circulate it to Frank [Warren], to Tyson and to the various lawyers.
“We’ll then get back to Eddie with our comments and I really believe that this is pretty much a no-brainer because everybody are professionals and want this to happen.
“So I think shortly we’ll be able to tie this up and then jointly select the site.”
“When we get the draft we’ll have our input and send them back a red line copy.
“They’ll study it and send us back a copy, and within a week or two we’ll have a complete meeting of the minds, I’m very confident.
“And we’ll get a document that both parties can sign.”
Regarding the location: “The appropriate place would’ve been the United Kingdom.
“But with the restrictions and uncertainty, we’re looking for a site someplace else – be it the Mid-East or Asia.
“And I’m sure that once we get this document signed, we’ll jointly be able to select the site and get it announced.”
