Fury cancels fight, calls Joshua coward

WBC champion, Tyson Fury has called off the fight with Anthony Joshua, describing him as a coward for failing to sign the contract offer before the deadline given.

Fury had issued an ultimatum to Joshua to sign the contract by 5pm on Monday or he would walk away from the deal.

Fury said on Monday evening via Instagram, after the expiration of the ultimatum: “Well, guys, it’s official. D-Day has come and gone. It’s gone past five o’clock on Monday, no contract has been signed.”

“It’s officially over for Joshua. He is now out in the cold with the wolf pack, forget about it. Idiot. Coward!”, he retorted.

The match was slated to take place on December 3, in Cardiff.
