If you’re still hoping to watch a match between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua in mid-August, it looks like your hopes could soon be completely over. This can be deduced from the statement of Fury's promoter Bob Arum, who actually said immediately after the judge's decision that they did not intend to pay Wilder the sum to give up his champion, but that he would hold the match.
