Fury has set Joshua a deadline of Monday to sign the contract for their fight

However, there are still no guarantees it will go ahead despite contracts being issued and sent to Joshua’s camp last Friday.

Fury decided to set a deadline of Monday, September 26 at 5pm for Joshua to sign a deal to fight him, telling talkSPORT: “Monday is the deadline. 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!”

Joshua responded more calmly, explaining that the contracts were currently being looked over by his lawyers.

His promoter Eddie Hearn, meanwhile, insists there is no chance an agreement can be finalised before Monday’s Fury-imposed deadline.

And if Joshua does not sign the contract by Monday, Fury insists he will move on – and has already revealed who his replacement will be.

He has claimed that he will face former WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight champion, Manuel Charr, after the 37-year-old German challenged him to a fight on social media.

Fury reposted Charr’s call out on Instagram alongside the caption, “If he don’t sign today you are in big G and you can show them how a real man throws down!”

Fury followed this up with a series of Instagram stories, as he said, “Today is D-Day people, f***ing D-Day, are you gonna sign the contract you big p**** or are you not gonna sign it?

“When Wilder sent me the contract for [the first fight], I signed it within 24 hours because I wanted to smash his face in.

“You’ve had the contract ten days now b**** and still ain’t signed it. If it’s not done by 5pm today, GK is moving on.”

Fury then reiterated this message later on, saying, “Bodybuilder, today is the drop dead date, get your lawyers, get your managers and get everybody who thinks for you to sing that contract.

“I’m not extending until tomorrow, I’m not extending until Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, a week on Tuesday, today is a drop dead date and if it ain’t signed, I ain’t going to tomorrow.

“I’ve just had Frank Warren on the phone and I am not going until tomorrow. Sign it b****, sign it, or else tomorrow is another day and it’s off the table, you big s***house.”
