That deadline expired on the weekend, but it was self-inflicted, and not a deal breaker.

Both the heavyweight champions are set to be confronted with other site deals, as Fury teased at least six interested parties recently.

Due to current questions marks over travel and live crowds, potential suitors have made it clear they will offer more money by the end of the year.

But AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn has warned that is not an option, with plans to push ahead for a July fight.

Hearn told SunSport: “I think everybody is aware, I know you might want to do this fight in November or December, but you can’t.

“All these people that want the fight know this is the only time it will happen.

“You have to do it now. When you make your offer, it’s got to reflect that.”
