George Warren provided a positive update on Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua negotiations
During the final press conference for Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker, CEO of Queensberry Promotions, George Warren, provided an optimistic update on the huge domestic showdown between WBC titlist Tyson Fury and former world champion Anthony Joshua, reportedly set for December 3rd.
George Warren told iFL TV: "If we're going to do something, we need to do it quite quickly. I think the other side are on the same page. We don't want to waste their time, they don't want to waste our time either, I believe.
"I think at the moment there seems to be good will from both respective parties to try and make it happen, and I'm very hopeful and optimistic of it being done."
Previously, an event of this magnitude has had too many obstacles to overcome, the opposing TV contracts is always one of the biggest problems to solve, but Warren explained how they plan to get around this sticking point, "I think dual broadcast isn't necessarily the right term. there are obviously complications when it comes broadcast aspects and exclusive contracts. What I will say is, ourselves and and our partners and BT, have both absolutely acknowledged and accepted that to make this fight happen we're going to have to collaborate and work with DAZN, if that's obviously the partner we're assuming it is because of AJ's exclusive deal with them, and they're very open to making sure that, that isn't an obstacle to the fight happening.
"So, from our side, and from BT's side, it is not going to be a problem down to our positioning on the broadcasting."
George's father Frank Warren has been quoted recently stating that 95% of the deal is done, which his son confirmed as true, "Principal terms are all agreed. We are working through it. We're having good, productive discussions, let's just hope they continue."
