It was already known that tentative talks had taken place regarding a possible location for the bout, however specifics had not emerged – seemingly due to the NDA.

When asked about the possibility of Fury fighting AJ, Warren said: “Look we’ve got no problem with it.

“We’ve signed an NDA with a country that are hopefully about to make the fight happen.

“I don’t think the other side want it. I’ve got a feeling in my bones that they do not want the fight.”

Any potential fight between the pair is unlikely to happen until next year due to their current contractual commitments.

Joshua must face IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev while Fury has his trilogy bout with Deontary Wilder for the WBC title.

Fury told Good Morning Britain: “Deontay Wilder has still got that third fight he’s got take.

“He will do and he will take the fight for one reason – money.

“There’s a hell of a lot of money on the table. He’s got eight or nine kids to feed.”

Fans had been calling for Fury and Joshua to fight each other next due to the coronavirus pandemic pushing events further back.

This would need both Wilder and Pulev to step aside – something both are unwilling to do.
