British Boxing fans are lucky to arguably have two of the three top Boxing heavyweights around at the moment.

Tyson Fury, the 'lineal' heavyweight champion who claims to have never lost the belts he won against Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015 and Anthony Joshua who currently holds the WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF heavyweight belts.

It is no secret that Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has no love lost with Fury's promoter Frank Warren, which only adds fuel to the fire for a potential bout.

Matchroom Boxing have been trying to arrange a deal with Fury's camp that would entice them to put a Joshua fight ahead of the highly-anticipated rematch with WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

This has been confirmed by Warren but he has not been very impressed with the way negotiations have transpired.

The 66-year-old has claimed that Eddie Hearn's company have not been entirely honest to the media about the deal that they proposed to Fury.

"The offer should've been made to me, I'm his promoter.

"Maybe Hearn should start acting like an adult and sit around a table like proper people," Warren added.

"The offer they made to Tyson was derisory, it wasn't 60/40, that's a lie."

If Warren's words are true, it seems Hearn is trying to get a bigger slice of the cake than first thought, meaning that a Fury acceptance is highly unlikely.

Joshua has a guaranteed fight on April 13th against an unnamed opponent - at this stage - and will be looking for a 23rd victory from 23 fights.

Fury, on the other hand, as previously mentioned has a fight now officially ordered by the World Boxing Council with Wilder, after they scrapped to a controversial draw back in December.

One thing is for certain, British and even World Boxing has not been crammed with such unbridled talent for many years and over the next couple we should see some fights for the ages.
