ANTHONY JOSHUA confirmed the first official venue offer for his undisputed title fight with Tyson Fury has been presented.
And he warned the Gypsy King there is ‘no place to hide’ as their dream blockbuster is close to a reality.
Joshua posted on social media: “Positive news this evening! I’m lacing up my running boots rn!!!
“@258MGT and @Matchroomboxing have received the first OFFICIAL offer to host the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Of The WORLD!
“I will be victorious God willing! No place to hide now! IM COMING.”
Joshua, 31, and Fury, 32, signed a two-fight deal in March, and promoters gave themselves a 28-day period to have a venue and date set in stone.
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.”
