Tyson Fury clash with Anthony Joshua to be 50-50 purse split with 'nothing standing in way of fight', says Frank Warren

TYSON FURY'S undisputed clash against Anthony Joshua will be a 50-50 split with 'nothing getting in its way', according to promoter Frank Warren.

Back at the start of coronavirus lockdown, Fury announced on social media that he had 'agreed' two fights against fellow Brit Joshua.

Fury holds the WBC heavyweight title, with Joshua the WBO, WBA and IBF champ.

And provided both boxers get through their upcoming fights, all the belts will be on the line in 2021.

Speaking on Wednesday’s talkSPORT Breakfast, Fury's promoter Frank Warren was asked whether it can REALLY happen.

The 68-year-old Londoner replied: "I would hope so. We’ve been banging on about it now for a long time, since Tyson came back.

“Provided they come through their fights then I don’t see how anything can get in its way. I just can’t see it.

“If it doesn’t happen for any reason then it won’t be because of Tyson Fury or us. The money side of it is very simple – it’s a straight 50/50 split – but it’s whether the other side really want it.

“I know that Tyson does [want it] and there should be nothing standing in the way of it providing they get through their two respective fights in December.”

Fury is set to meet little-known Agit Kabayel on December 5 in a homecoming fight at London's Royal Albert Hall.


Then a week later AJ will defend his world titles against Bulgarian veteran Kubrat Pulev.

With Fury's Deontay Wilder rematch seemingly scrapped, all roads could lead to an all-British undisputed heavyweight title scrap.

But both camps will have an eye on the WBO and their mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk who is keen to take up his shot at Joshua first.
