The contracts have been sent to Anthony Joshua’s team. They will have arrived on Friday morning.

Now we wait for them to go through them and sign so we can get one of British boxing’s biggest events on.

All our side is on board for this fight. Tyson Fury is eager for it as he showed last week by calling out his fellow Brit.

Since the passing of the Queen, Tyson has been respectful and kept his counsel while we work on the deal behind the scenes.

The next step was sending over the contracts which we promised Joshua would arrive soon. I don’t anticipate there will be any problems. We all want this fight to happen.

There is a will on both sides to make sure it does which is great. This will be one of the biggest fights in British boxing history if not the biggest.

Heavyweight boxing has always been the glamour division of the sport and to see two Englishmen go at it will be huge.

The WBC title will be on the line but this will be as much about the bragging rights between the pair.

For years we’ve wanted this to happen and we were close before but now seems to be the time it will finally happen.

What a treat for British fight fans that it will take place on these shores, too.

They deserve it for supporting Tyson – and Joshua for that matter – for years and we hope once it is all signed and sealed as many as possible can get their hands on tickets.

It will shatter all pay-per-view records and will be one of the sporting occasions of the year.

That’s saying something considering England will also be out in Qatar at the same time going for World Cup glory.

But we believe this fight will be just as big as that and the whole of the UK will stop to watch it. In fact, I think it will capture the imagination of the world too.

Tyson is, in my view, the best heavyweight on the planet and Joshua has a chance at redemption and to get his hands on a world title again.

Hopefully we will have good news. In the meantime, we will keep working hard to make it happen.
