WBC champion, Tyson Fury, has said the fight between him and Anthony Joshua is off.
According to him, this is because Joshua missed the deadline to sign the contract offer.
It had appeared the two British boxers would face off in Cardiff on December 3, 2022.
Joshua’s camp publicly confirmed they have accepted all the terms of Fury’s deal.
Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, then confirmed the contract to officially rubber stamp the fight is on its way to Joshua’s team soon.
Joshua said on Sunday he would sign the contract to fight Fury after the WBC champion issued an ultimatum to get it done by 5pm on Monday or he would walk away from the deal.
And on Monday evening, Fury took to Instagram again to say no signed contract had been sent back.
Fury said: “Well, guys, it’s official. D-Day has come and gone. It’s gone past five o’clock on Monday, no contract has been signed.
“It’s officially over for Joshua. He is now out in the cold with the wolf pack, forget about it. Idiot. Coward!”
He added: “I always knew you didn’t have the minerals to fight the Gypsy King. Good luck with your career, and your life.”
