World boxing champion Tyson Fury delays appearance after Blackpool tour to ‘prepare for next blockbuster fight’

But on Tuesday (September 27), the Gypsy King announced the tour had been delayed so he could “prepare for his next blockbuster fight” on December 3.

His Blackpool appearance was later postponed to Sunday December 18 – the same day as the World Cup final.

” Goodbye. God protects you.”

On Monday, September 26, Fury said his proposed heavyweight showdown with Anthony Joshua was canceled after his self-imposed deadline expired.

Fury issued an ultimatum to Joshua’s camp on Friday night, insisting that if the deal couldn’t be done in time, he would walk away from the all-British blockbuster fight.

Speaking on Instagram on Monday night, the WBC champion said: “Well guys, it’s official. D-Day has passed. It’s past five, Monday. No contract signed.

“It’s officially over for Joshua. He is now out in the cold with the wolf pack.

“Forget it. Idiot. Coward. S*** house. Bodybuilder. Always knew it. You always knew you didn’t have the minerals to fight the Gypsy King.

“No matter what you say now, I don’t care. Good luck in your career and in your life. End of. Calm down.

Hours after Fury ended negotiations with Joshua, he apparently confirmed Mahmoud Charr as the man he would face on December 3.

Promoter Eddie Hearn had previously said there was “zero chance” the contracts would be signed by Monday, while Joshua insisted on Sunday negotiations were up to his lawyers.

Speaking on an Instagram Live, Joshua said: “It’s not in my hands – it’s with a legal team. That’s why you hire lawyers.

“You know the history of boxing – make sure you understand your legal terms. That’s why you get good management and good lawyers.

“So of course I’ll sign the contract – it’s just with a few lawyers a minute.”

Television executives from BT Sport and streaming service DAZN were due to meet on Monday, with Joshua’s team having already verbally accepted Fury’s offer of a 60-40 purse split.
