‘There is no chance of Wilder taking step aside compensation. Not even at ridiculously over inflated sums like the $20 million which has been speculated.’

Of the legal judgement which has prevented Fury and Joshua finally fighting in Saudi Arabia in August for the undisputed world heavyweight title, Arum says: ‘Tyson’s not happy but he’s a real fighting man. 

‘He vows to knock out Wilder even quicker than he did last time.’
