WBC champion, Tyson Fury, has told Anthony Joshua to sign the contract for their all-British heavyweight battle by Monday or the fight is off.

Fury is running out of patience as he waits for a response from Joshua’s representatives.

“We’ll know by Monday anyway (if the super-fight is on) because if it’s not done by Monday I’m moving on,” Fury told Queensberry.

Joshua’s camp has received a contract and talks between the rival promoters are believed to have gone well so far.

But time is of the essence if a major fight is to take place by early December.

“I was optimistic about three weeks ago but it shouldn’t be taking this long to sign a contract.

“I’m not waiting around for some guy who’s lost three of his last five fights. He’s lucky that I’m giving him a world title shot. If not he’ll have to wait a long time to get another one,” Fury added.
