“A few days ago, I sent a draft contract to Anthony Joshua for a fight in September [at] Wembley Stadium,” Fury wrote on Instagram.
“It’s a fight everyone wants to see, including myself. Come on AJ, let’s give the world what they want to see. This time, I’m not gonna make a million [videos] and keep putting pressure on [you]. The ball is now on your side.”

Fury’s recent Instagram post contradicts reports that he was interested in fighting Demsey McKean in Australia in July. Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, also says that it isn’t true. On Saturday, May 27, he told iFL TV that he had not yet received a contract from Fury’s representatives.
“No contract has been sent,” he said.
“On Tuesday or Wednesday, George Warren sent me an email and said, ‘Look, would you be interested in a fight in September? We’ve discussed terms before. We don’t think it would be that hard to make. What are your thoughts?’ I rang George Warren immediately and said, ‘Listen, we’re planning an August fight. Obviously, we’re in negotiations with Saudi Arabia for the fight in December. If we can’t get that model moving, we’d be more than happy to look at a Tyson Fury fight.'”
