Fury accused of "swanning around calling everyone a dosser" as Joshua trains

Eddie Hearn has told Tyson Fury to show some patience as he races to complete a deal for the undisputed fight with Anthony Joshua.

The £200million mega-fight had been plunged into doubt when Fury's promoter Bob Arum claimed his fighter could walk away from the deal.

Arum said he was ready to re-open negotiations over a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder instead of a clash with fellow Brit Joshua.

But Hearn has hit back at Arum, and Fury, to insist a deal will be struck with Saudi Arabia within days.

“It’s definitely taking a little bit longer than we anticipated, both guys have accepted the deal that’s come in from the Middle East, we’re papering that deal," he told talkSPORT.

“It’s not as easy as just a 24-hour turnaround of a long-form agreement for a fight of this magnitude.

“Bob Arum said, ‘Eddie Hearn, he’s run out of time.’

“We’re supposed to be partners on this fight. The only one I see doing any work on this fight at all is me. And I won’t stop until we’ve got the fight made."

Fury is currently training in Las Vegas and had repeatedly called out both Hearn and Joshua who remains in the UK.

And Hearn added: "Tyson Fury ’s getting right up my nostrils as well.

“He’s a great fighter and he’s a great talker as well. I just think when I look at those two together – you’ve got one guy working behind closed doors in Finchley with a dream to become undisputed champion.

“And then you’ve got another bloke who’s swanning around in a suite at the encore in Las Vegas, wearing terrible Versace shirts, screaming on social media all day calling everyone a dosser.

“To be fair, I was with Tyson about ten days ago in Vegas. He wants the fight, we all want the fight, I think everyone’s just getting a bit frustrated that it’s taking probably two or three weeks longer than we expected."

Joshua and Fury are expected to meet in Jeddah on either July 24, 31 or August 7 with their rematch pencilled in for the UK in December.
