IBF, WBO, WBA, IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is not paying any attention to the numerous deadline threats from WBC champion Tyson Fury, who several times threatened to walk away from the fight unless a date was quickly finalized.
According to Joshua, his only focus is training hard and getting in the ring with Fury.
The two sides have now agreed on an site offer, with Saudi Arabia reportedly the frontrunner to host.
Both parties are hoping to schedule the first meeting of a two fight deal in the summer.
Fury has been out of the ring since February 2020, when he stopped Deontay Wilder in seven rounds to capture the WBC world title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Joshua believes Fury has the wrong mindset with the constant deadline threats.
"I don’t think that’s the right mindset to have. I would wait until the end of the year if I had to. It’s the fight we both want, it’s the fight the world wants, the promoters and the TV networks, so putting a time limit isn’t right," Joshua told Pro Beez of Pep Talk UK.
“If people are clearly working on something and they need a little extra time, you want the job done right then you sit tight for a little bit. As long as things are getting done I will wait til next Tuesday or the Tuesday after. I know I want it and so does he, maybe he just got his words mixed up. With every week that passes I am a week better, a week stronger and a week wiser and a week closer to the day when I kick Tyson Fury’s ass. I don’t know what Fury is doing and I don’t give a sh!t either, all I know is what I am doing and I am coming.”
