David Jose says Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury should have a ridiculous offer to end the world title fight this summer. Boxing News
Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury should receive an “absolutely ridiculous” offer to end the undisputed world title fight this summer, says David Hay.
Britain’s rival champions are looking at successful options to organize their blockbuster fight as promoter Eddie Hearn remains optimistic about giving him a date and place this week.
But Hay, a former heavyweight holder, believes a big financial reward is needed to share the ring with Joshua and Fury in the coming months.
“I’ll be surprised if it happens before November,” Hay said Sky Sports. “If it happens before November, it ‘s wonderful.
“Knowing boxing like I do, any offer they receive should be ridiculous, completely ridiculous to cross the line, and if it exceeds it, may God bless both of them.
He came out of the fray against Fury Wilder, AJ overcame a loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. and came back with the win, so they both deserve the richest prize in the sport.
“They deserve every penny they win because they’ve both put them on the line. They’ve both sacrificed, they’ve both become world heavyweight champions in their own right.
“They’ve both taken a beating. Fury has dropped from the canvas against Wilder, AJ has overcome his loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. and is back with the win, so they both deserve the richest prize in the sport.
“They both deserve to be in this big mega event. Let the best man win when it finally happens.”
Fury suggested an agreement should be reached by Tuesday, tells Behind the gloves: “We have to go to the last Monday, until Tuesday. If I don’t know anything for Tuesday, I will move on because it takes a long time.
“Now, finally, the offers are on the table. We’ll go through them and take the best.”
Hearn Matchroom boss Bob Arum, Fury’s U.S. promoter, planned to meet there this week to overcome the remaining requirements.
Several venues have offered Joshua vs. Fury, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Singapore, China, America, Dubai and the United Kingdom, with a planned fight scheduled for July.
“The teams will come together,” Hearn said Sky Sports. “I’ll try to see Bob Arum on Tuesday. We’re almost there.
“We’ve worked very hard and we don’t want to give up.
“It has to be in the indoor hall and those pitches are already there, ready for this fight …”

“We’re in a good place, nice and close. I can’t do more than I’m doing. People know we’re on the verge.
“The two boys are desperate to move. Joshua wants a date to start his camp. This is a 2021 sporting event.
“A site of good luck will receive good news next week and the whole world will stop watching this fight.”
