Tyson Fury’s Promoter Frank Warren Names Terms For Anthony Joshua Fight
Tyson Fury's promoter Frank Warren joked that Anthony Joshua should only get a 30% split if the two square off.
Warren spoke after Fury's victory over Deontay Wilder last night and stated he'd rather see Fury take on Joshua over a Wilder trilogy bout.
'The Bronze Bomber' is eligible for an automatic rematch but Warren explained a unification bout with Joshua makes more sense.
"Everything is in the hands of Deontay Wilder's team for the next 30 days but I'd like to see a unification," the 67-year-old told Boxing Social per The Metro.
When asked if it would be a 50/50 split, he said smiling: "I don't know now. He's in the slipstream isn't he? Maybe make it 70/30 generously on second thoughts [smiling].
Warren was also asked about the anticipation for a Fury/Joshua bout and he told iFL TV: 'Not a problem. That's where we are, we're top of the world with heavyweights aren't we. It's brilliant. But we all know who the number one is.
"Of course we want to see it. Listen, he don't duck anyone. He went to Germany and beat the guy [Wladimir Klitschko] with the second longest reign of any heavyweight champion. He's been here [USA] twice. Who does he duck? Come on."
Warren also admitted he expects Fury to defeat Wilder again if he exercises his rematch clause in the next 30 days.

"You would expect him to exercise the option, whether he goes through with it I don't know.
"But that's what I'd do, to at least keep his position, that's the sensible thing to do. But it's his choice. But it ain't gonna be no different next time around if there even is a next time around.
"He's just got his number. He had his number in the first fight - he won the first fight! I keep saying, we made that first fight believing that he'd win it. So this time he emphatically won it, and did it in style."
Wilder was absent from the post-match proceedings last night after being taken to hospital.
A ferocious shot from Fury in the third round caught him on the ear and could have potentially ruptured his left ear drum.
Wilder went down twice during the fight before his team threw in the towel during the seventh round.
Who do you think Fury will take on next?
