Tyson Fury says there are “three or four big offers on the table” from countries hoping to host his eagerly-anticipated world title unification bout with Anthony Joshua.

Promoter Eddie Hearn announced last month that the two British heavyweights had signed a two-fight deal, but dates and venues for the showdowns are yet to be confirmed.

Fury’s father John had cast doubt over whether the fight would go ahead last week, but ‘The Gypsy King’ issued a positive update on Twitter.

Fury said: “Just had some big news. Three or four big offers on the table.

“Interest from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Uzbekistan, Russia, America, England. Some big, big offers on the table.

“I’m going to go through them on Sunday and hopefully we get this big fight on. Let me smash this big dosser.

“Big useless dosser, should I say, because when I get him, I’m going to give it to him.”

Joshua also issued an update, saying that him, Matchroom Boxing and his management company were working hard to make the fight happen.

He tweeted: “I want to give my fans what they want and you know I’ll do whatever I can to deliver. Hoping to share some positive news soon.”

Fury has not fought since stopping Deontay Wilder in stunning fashion in Las Vegas in February 2020, while Joshua beat Kubrat Pulev in December.
