Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury: Eddie Hearn explains why there will be no more updates until official announcement that fight is signed

Eddie Hearn has said he will refrain from giving regular updates on Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury negotiations until the fight is signed.
AJ’s promoter and Fury’s US co-promoter Bob Arum begun exchanging contracts last week and the hope is that they will have a finalised document very soon.

Hearn explained last week that there are just minor issues to be resolved.
With the fight edging ever closer to reality, the usually talkative promoter has agreed to keep quiet for now.
Hearn told iFL TV: “Bob phoned me two nights ago, ‘Eddie, I think you should stop talking about Fury vs Joshua.
“I said, ‘What do you mean?’
“And he went, ‘Well, because you’re talking and then Frank [Warren] ’s gonna wanna talk and I’m gonna wanna say something. Let’s just go quiet until we sign the deal and all announce it together.’

“I said, ‘Alright Bob.’
“Bob phones me up and tells me what to do! I respect Bob, I don’t have to listen to Bob, but I respect Bob.
“I listen, I digest the information – or the instruction sometimes – and decide what I’m gonna do.
“And I agree.
“To be honest with you I don’t really wanna talk about the fight because I keep saying the same thing, don’t I?

“Two weeks, hopefully it’ll be done.
“I don’t wanna bore people, but I said to Bob, ‘I’m getting asked about it 20 times a day in interviews, what do you want me to say?’
“So what I’ll tell you – and I don’t think we should go too deep into it – is we’ve sent the contract, we’ve had minor requests for changes which all seem a reasonable discussion.
“And hopefully it shouldn’t be too long to go before an official announcement.
“Still some work to go, but we’re close.”
