Team Fury Respond To Eddie Hearn's Offer To Fight Anthony Joshua At Wembley Stadium

Tyson Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, has responded to Eddie Hearn's offer to fight Anthony Joshua at Wembley Stadium.

Eddie Hearn recently made it clear that Tyson Fury can fight Anthony Joshua on April 13th, if he wants it.

"I think right now, there's more chance of fighting Tyson Fury," the Matchroom boss said.

"There's a man that knows he can have this fight, if he wants it. I've spoken to him. He knows if he wants to fight Joshua, it can happen April 13."

However, Team Fury aren't entertaining Hearn's 'derisory' offer.

He also sent the deal to Fury himself rather than Warren. That was never going to go down well.

"We've never had that offer, no offer has been sent to me," Warren told the Daily Telegraph.

"Hearn sent Tyson an offer over the weekend but it certainly wasn't 60/40. It was quite a derisory offer and we haven't even responded to it.

"He would need 50/50, as simple as that."

Demanding a 50/50 financial split seems pretty ridiculous.

Joshua brings not one but THREE world titles to the table. He currently holds the WBA (super), IBF and WBO heavyweight belts.

While Fury is the lineal heavyweight champion, let's be honest, it doesn't exactly hold much leverage in negotiations.

Fury, meanwhile, continues to be linked with a rematch vs. Deontay Wilder following their championship bout last year.

Joshua, on the other hand, still needs an opponent for April 13th with talk even suggesting he may end up swerving that date in favour of a bout in the States against Jarrell Miller.
