Tyson Fury has revealed the text message exchanges he has had with Eddie Hearn as Anthony Joshua searches for his next opponent on April 13.
Jarrell Miller, Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte and Fury are all in the picture to be in the ring with the current IBF, WBO and WBA champion Anthony Joshua this April.
However, Joshua’s chances of landing a fight with Wilder as he looks to unify the division are slim as the WBC have told both Fury and Wilder to make a decision on their rematch by early February.
Below you can see the transcript from said text message.
Hearn: 'Before we make our move, is it worth having a conversation about the fight?'
Fury: 'I'm ready. How much?'
After no reply, Fury sent another text: 'Have you gone cold on me?'
Hearn: 'No. I want to do things properly.'
Fury: 'Send me your offer in writing. How much?'
Hearn has confirmed talks have taken place with Fury over a potential super-fight in April, but has maintained favouring Wilder as his next competitor as Joshua wants the WBC belt to finally have unification of the heavyweight division.
Fury does have other plans to travel the world and fight, as he told The Sunday Times: “Let’s go on tour. Twelve countries, 12 fights.
"Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Nigeria, Spain. Boom! The Tyson Fury road show. Let’s do something that’s never been done before. Let’s leave a legacy. I’m serious. It’s my dream.”
The next fight for Anthony Joshua seems to be all up in the air at the moment, but Jarrell Miller seems to be edging as front runner to have a shot at the Brit.
As Dillian Whyte rubbished Hearn’s offer to fight Joshua, Hearn announced at Madison Square Garden on Friday night: “Don't be surprised to see Anthony Joshua on DAZN in June against Big Baby Miller in this very building.”
The question that really has to be answered is, who is going to fight Anthony Joshua?
Boxing fans have the right to become frustrated as the answer looks far from settled with each fighter wanting different demands.
As fans, all we want is the fight!
