ANTHONY JOSHUA has been warned he must sign off on a clash with Tyson Fury by the end of next week.

Fury offered fallen hero AJ a shock December shot at the WBC heavyweight crown.

But promoter George Warren said: “We need to be getting contracts signed next week.

“I don’t think that’s difficult. If everyone wants to make it, it can be done and I believe the other side wants to make it.

“My dad Frank and Eddie Hearn have gone on record to say 90-95 per cent of it’s been agreed.


“There are parts of contracts need to be refined and negotiated — tickets and hotel rooms — the biggest thing is the broadcast but it should not slow down the contract.”

AJ’s promoter Hearn admitted his new exclusive broadcasting deal with DAZN still poses issues.

Joshua’s management have already accepted the fight on terms of a 60-40 split in Fury’s favour.

Queensberry promoter Warren insists Fury’s side and BT Sport are doing everything to get the Brit megabout sealed.

Warren added: “BT have been an amazing partner.

“Sensible heads will prevail to make the fight.”

Oleksandr Usyk says AJ acted like a brat after the Ukrainian beat him for a second time last month.

Joshua, 32, slung Usyk’s belts out of the ring and grabbed to mic to speak.


Usyk said: “He reminded me of a boy who loses his ball over the neighbours’ fence and is angry.”

Usyk confirmed his next three fights will be his last and a two-fight undisputed decider with Fury remains his priority.
