FRANK WARREN says a binding agreement for the unification clash between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury has still not come through.

Both fighters have signed their contract for the £108m heavyweight showdown but a venue and date are still to be confirmed.

Eddie Hearn, AJ’s promoter, last week claimed that both camps have agreed on a site deal, which he stated should be finalised in writing very soon.

Since then reports have emerged that the deal is from Saudi Arabia, the country that hosted Joshua’s rematch win over Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019, which would net both fighters at least £54m

However, Fury’s UK co-promoter Warren has poured cold water on that speculation by insisting nothing is confirmed at present.

He told talkSPORT: “Look, every day I’m being told – it’s like, ‘It’s in the post.’

“It’s not arrived and that’s where we are. I’ll believe it when I see it.

“We’re being told it’ll be here.

“I know Tyson’s had enough of hanging around. He wants to fight in June or July and that’s what will happen if this thing doesn’t get resolved very quickly.

“We all want the fight. We’re all working, moving heaven and Earth to get it over the line, but at the moment the offer hasn’t come through.

“Maybe the two guys have gotta look – if the offer doesn’t come through – to look at how we make this fight viable.

“Everyone’s expectation levels maybe have to reassess.”

When quizzed over the alleged mega-money Saudi deal, Warren said: “Until I see it, it’s not there.

“Until something’s signed, confirmed, whatever the number’s gonna be, it’s not there.

“We can talk all day long, it’s not there.

“It’s not gonna take place in June or July, that’s not happening and the only way we can only be realistic about this, saying it’s happening, is if we actually get a binding agreement.

“That’s what we want, a binding agreement.”
