Anthony Joshua’s team has confirmed they have accepted terms proposed by Tyson Fury ahead of a potential fight on December 3.
Joshua’s 258 Management and Matchroom revealed this on social media on Tuesday.
They claimed that communication had been halted due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and that they were waiting for a response.
Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, simply replied: “Contract will be with you very soon.”
Fury recently challenged Joshua to a long-awaited all-British showdown and offered the two-time world champion a 60-40 purse, after it emerged a prospective undisputed clash against Oleksandr Usyk would likely have to wait until 2023.
The 34-year-old chose November 26 at Wembley or December 3 at Cardiff as potential dates for the fight.
