Tyson Fury’s US co-promoter Bob Arum has told talkSPORT that the exchanging of contracts for the potential Anthony Joshua fight will begin this week.
Arum has been in negotiations with AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn trying to finalise the undisputed heavyweight title fight for this year.
This is edging ever closer to becoming a reality.
Arum told talkSPORT Fight Night: “I talked to Eddie yesterday. Eddie, with the Joshua people, will have the first draft of the contract to us on Tuesday.
“And then I will circulate it to Frank [Warren], to Tyson and to the various lawyers.
“We’ll then get back to Eddie with our comments and I really believe that this is pretty much a no-brainer because everybody are professionals and want this to happen.
“So I think shortly we’ll be able to tie this up and then jointly select the site.”
