TYSON FURY did NOT send Anthony Joshua a contract for a September fight.
The 34-year-old WBC Gypsy King has been to Australia and is promising a few bouts with strangers Down Under.
And he has now claimed he sent 33-year-old AJ an offer for the overdue fight, which last fell through when it was scheduled for December 3.
AJ promoter Eddie Hearn has booked the O2 for August 12 and is working on a December clash with Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia. While Fury has spoken to Fury matchmaker George Warren, he hasn’t made a firm offer.
Hearn said, “I don’t want to upset anyone, but I don’t want anyone to make Anthony Joshua look bad for no reason.”
Earlier this week, Fury wrote on Instagram: “A few days ago I sent Anthony Joshua a draft contract for a fight at Wembley in September.”
“It’s a fight that everyone wants to see, including me.
“Come on AJ, let’s give the world what it wants to see.
“This time I’m not going to make a million videos and keep pushing.
“The ball is now on your side.”

US promoter Bob Arum admitted this week, while in Belfast to promote another show, that it was impossible to direct or control the giant showman.
In addition to his planned fight with AJ in December 2022, Fury also had to see a fight with Oleksandr Usyk fall through.
The heavyweight pair had been promised a fight on April 29, but talks fell through.
