Tyson Fury confirms there are 'three or four big offers' on the table for Anthony Joshua mega-fight

TYSON FURY confirmed there are 'three or four big offers' on the table for his mega-fight with Anthony Joshua.

The two heavyweight champions are set to step into the ring for the Battle of Britain this summer in the first of their two-fight deal.

Negotiations continue over a date and a venue – but Fury insists there are plenty of options.

Taking to Twitter on Friday night, the Gypsy King said: "Just had some big news – three or four big offers on the table.

"Interest from Saudi Arabia, my gypsy brothers in Qatar, Uzbekistan, Russia, America, England.

"There's some big, big offers on the table.

"I'm going to go through them on Sunday and hopefully we get this big fight on and let me smash this big dosser, big useless dosser let me say.

"Because when I get him, I'm going to give him that," finishing the video raising his clenched fist to the camera.

Joshua also took to social media on Friday evening to confirm he is doing all he can to get the show on the road.

He wrote: "Quick update. Myself, @258mgt & @MatchroomBoxing are working really hard to make the fight happen.


"I want to give my fans what they want & you know I’ll do whatever I can to deliver. Hoping to share some positive news soon."

The Twitter posts came just hours after SunSport revealed the two men are 'very close' to finalising the unification fight – with Eddie Hearn ruling out a delay until December.

There was a 28-day period to get logistics sorted after signing the two-fight contract in March which expires this weekend.

But AJ's promoter Hearn assured the deadline is not a deal-breaker and instead deals for sites are being considered, as Fury confirmed.

The Matchroom chief told SunSport: "It's a self-inflicted deadline from both teams that we agreed that should give us enough time to secure it.

"Both teams will have the options presented to them this weekend, so there will be discussions early next week.

"We'll say, 'We like that one' or, 'We'd like a bit more money'. All these different things are yet to be discussed.

"We'll work together and say well this is the option, let's go.

"We're very close and we're around the numbers which I think gets this done. I think once it's presented, I think we'll be fine."

Current coronavirus restrictions have all-but ruled out hopes of a dream Battle of Britain at the Three Lions' Wembley Stadium.

Instead, the all-English unification is set for an away fixture with the Middle East among the lucrative suitors.
