‘Put up or shut up’
John Fury has told Eddie Hearn to finalise Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury or stop talking about it altogether.
In a ‘put up or shut up’ video message, Tyson’s father made it clear that he and his son have no fear of AJ and will welcome an undisputed title bout against him this summer.
It is known that the pair have signed contracts to meet, but a site deal still must be completed to determine the date/venue before the fight is finalised.
John previously cast doubt on the contract signing and Eddie Hearn responded by questioning whether the Fury camp truly want the fight.
Now, Fury Sr has said: “This is a video to Eddie Hearn and all these supporters of AJ.
“We’re not bothered about Anthony Joshua one iota and here’s what you can do.
“If he wants a fight in June, get it ready for June, Eddie. We’ll take him as a warm-up fight, him.
“We value Anthony Joshua that much we’ll take him as a warm-up fight in June.
“So get your a*** in gear, get everything that needs doing done and we’ll take him in June.
“Because Tyson is fighting twice this year, but we’d like AJ to be the first one on the butcher’s block.
“So get your a*** in gear mate, wave your magic wand and let’s get this fight started because nobody’s worried about you or AJ in any way, shape or form.
“And if you can’t put up, shut up – do that.”
