Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury: Frank Warren slams Eddie Hearn’s ‘derisory’ offer, still working on Deontay Wilder rematch


The promoter said he never received the proposal and that it was sent directly to his fighter

Frank Warren has branded an offer from Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn to fight Tyson Fury as “ridiculous” and “derisory.”

Hearn revealed on Monday that he made an approach for Joshua vs Fury to take place on April 13 at Wembley Stadium, and stated Dillian Whyte and Deontay Wilder both also have proposals on the table.

However, when asked about this, Fury’s promoter Warren told talkSPORT’s Gareth A Davies: “I’ve never seen that. That offer’s never been sent to me and I’m his promoter.

“He did send something to Tyson, but that was a derisory offer.

“What we’re working on is the fight with Deontay Wilder, but there’s certainly no 60/40 offer to us, that’s rubbish.”

Hearn stated that his offer was not too far away from a 60/40 percentage split (in Joshua’s favour).

In contrast, Warren has always insisted an Joshua vs Fury fight would have to be a 50/50 agreement, something he stands by.

“There’s certainly no 60/40 offer to us, that’s rubbish,” Warren continued, “Where do they get the 60/40 from?”

“Any deal with Tyson Fury is gonna be a 50/50 deal, simple as that.

“When they did Parker, they settled on 67½/32½. You’re telling me that Tyson Fury’s worth [only] 7½% more than Parker? It’s ridiculous.”
