ANTHONY JOSHUA revealed he is ‘working really hard’ to secure an undisputed title fight with Tyson Fury.
But the Gypsy King taunted ‘one day left’ as their agreement deadline draws closer.
The heavyweight champions signed a two-fight deal in March, and promoters gave themselves a 28-day period to have a venue and date set in stone.
But as the deadline approaches this weekend, Fury has twice referenced on social media that the clock is ticking.
In his latest, he wrote: “1 day left.” Accompanied by three alarm clocks.
But AJ was quick to assure fans himself, his management group 258 and Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing are still in talks with the opposition.
He tweeted: “Quick update. Myself, @258mgt & @MatchroomBoxing are working really hard to make the fight happen.
“I want to give my fans what they want & you know I’ll do whatever I can to deliver. Hoping to share some positive news soon.”
Hearn confirmed the deadline is not a deal-breaker, and various mega-money site deals are being laid out to both camps in the coming days.
He told SunSport: “It’s a self-inflicted deadline from both teams that we agreed that should give us enough time to secure it.

“Both teams will have the options presented to them this weekend, so there will be discussions early next week.
“We’ll say, ‘We like that one’ or, ‘We’d like a bit more money’. All these different things are yet to be discussed.
“We’ll work together and say well this is the option, let’s go.
“We’re very close and we’re around the numbers which I think gets this done. I think once it’s presented, I think we’ll be fine.”
