Boxing promoter begs Anthony Joshua to give fans Tyson Fury bout they want: “All the fans would love to see it”

In a fervent plea to heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, is pulling out all the stops to convince Joshua to reconsider his decision and accept the offer for a thrilling showdown with Fury in September.

Despite Joshua’s current plans of an August fight followed by a bout against Deontay Wilder in December, Warren remains unwavering in his pursuit of a summer clash between Fury and Joshua, stressing that it’s what the boxing fans truly crave.

Frank Warren’s plea to Anthony Joshua

“A Message to Anthony Joshua – please reconsider, please do that fight for the boxing fans, let’s make it happen. I, for one, am dying to witness this epic battle, and I know all the fans share the same sentiment,” Warren passionately conveyed during an interview with iFL TV.

Notably, the terms for the fight have already been agreed upon, and Warren firmly believes the electrifying showdown should take place on British soil. With Joshua’s rejection of the offer, Tyson Fury finds himself with limited options for his September fight.

The highly anticipated uncontested matchup against Oleksandr Usyk was canceled owing to an impasse over how much money would be shared in the event of a rematch. The Gypsy King’s opponent, Andy Ruiz Jr., who recently called Fury out on social media, priced himself out of discussions by requesting an absurd £16 million ($20 million) for a match, according to Fury.

Similar to previous instances, the proposed fight fails to materialize, leaving Warren undeterred in his pursuit of making the event a reality. Warren again makes the same request to Joshua, “Please reconsider, please do that fight for the boxing fans. Let’s make it happen.” Nevertheless, there is one viable option in the form of the American fighter, Andy Ruiz Jr.

However, Ruiz Jr.’s momentum took a hit after a shocking draw against Jerry Forrest in his previous outing. Hence, Warren, Fury’s promoter, makes an earnest appeal to Anthony Joshua, urging him to reconsider the opportunity and engage in a monumental clash with Fury on British soil for the sake of the devoted boxing fans.

Why did Joshua snub Fury?

The recent rejection of Fury’s September fight offer by Anthony Joshua’s camp brings a sense of déjà vu to the boxing world. Understanding the behind-the-scenes efforts and plans Joshua’s team has been working on, fans might forgive Joshua for adhering to their ongoing strategy.

Joshua’s schedule it currently does include a fight in the month of August against an undisclosed opponent. According to rumors, it will be Dillian “The Villain” Whyte, followed by a match in Saudi Arabia against former world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder.

Fans react as Anthony Joshua confirms Tyson Fury clash

The financial rewards for Joshua in the winter fight are set to be astounding, and insider reports indicate that it’s practically a done deal, making it difficult for a potential Fury clash to divert his attention. As a result, until negotiations can restart for a prospective showdown against Oleksandr Usyk later in the year, “The Gypsy King” will be without a challenger.

Warren emphasizes that they are leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of alternative options to ensure Fury has an opponent in the meantime.
