Tyson Fury sends Anthony Joshua a contract for mega-fight in September at Wembley

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury indicates that a contract has been sent to former two-time world champion Anthony Joshua - for a potential domestic blockbuster at Wembley Stadium in September.

"A few days ago I sent a draft contract to Anthony Joshua for a fight in September at Wembley Stadium," Fury stated on Instagram.

"It is a fight that everyone wants to see including myself. Come on AJ let’s give the world what they want to see. This time I’m not going to make a million vids and keeping putting pressure on. The ball is now on your side."

After his last match, in which he outclassed and defeated Derek Chisora in a trilogy fight, in December, Fury has been vocal about his desire to return to the ring.

Joshua defeated Jermaine Franklin in a twelve-round unanimous decision back in April, following back-to-back losses to Oleksandr Usyk, the unified champion.

Derrick James, who is best known for his work with Errol Spence, Frank Martin, and Jermell Charlo, is currently training Joshua.

Several outlets claim that the two opposing sides are currently debating the specifics of a future showdown.

Back in 2021, they were quite close to reaching an agreement, but when Deontay Wilder was successful in obtaining a court order that mandated Fury to move forward with their contracted trilogy fight.

Additionally, there were debates in 2022. The exact date and location of the fight's staging were two issues on which the two parties could not come to an agreement.

For his upcoming appearance, Fury's options are becoming quite limited. Fury's team sought Andy Ruiz and Zhilei Zhang for a fight in the summer after failing to reach an agreement with Usyk for an April unification. Ruiz considerably overpriced himself, and Zhang was disqualified due to a contractual obligation to face Joe Joyce in a rematch, according to Fury and his handlers.
