He goes on to say:

I always knew you didn’t have the minerals to fight the Gypsy King.

Good luck with your career, and your life.”

Joshua had assured Fury on Sunday that he would sign the contract, saying:

It’s not in my hands, it’s with the legal team. That’s why you hire lawyers. You know the history of boxing, make sure you get your legal terms right.

Of course, I’m going to sign a contract. It’s just with some lawyers at the minute.

Fury may still fight before the end of the year, but the undisputed showdown with WBO, WBA and IBF titlist Oleksandr Usyk will have to wait until next year.
