Despite his current losing run, Joshua will get the chance to battle Fury for the WBC world championship later in 2022 in Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
The current public agreement between Fury and Joshua for their December 3 fight has Fury receiving 60% of the purse money and Joshua receiving 40%, with a rematch divided 50/50 if “AJ” wins the first bout.
The 34-year-old recently set a deadline of Monday night for Joshua to sign his portion of the agreement, and he insisted that if Joshua misses the deadline, he will look for a replacement opponent.
“If they don’t sign the contract by Monday, he’s out the window and he’ll be exposed for the s***house he is!”
Unfazed by the drama surrounding his next fight, Joshua went to the Meriden Estate in Watford on Saturday night and spent some time giving back to his community.
In front of a sizable crowd of fans, the 32-year-old was filmed giving out gifts, posing for photos, and shadowboxing before taking out a wad of cash from his bag and giving it to people.
Later, in response to worries that his planned fight with Fury is in danger of falling through, AJ took to social media.
“I’ve been signing contracts for years,” Joshua said.
“It ain’t in my hands, it’s with a legal team. That’s why you hire lawyers.
“If you know the history of boxing, you make sure you get your legal terms right. That’s why you’ve got good management and good lawyers.
“So, of course, I’m going to sign the contract.
“It’s just with some lawyers at the minute.”
