Fury, 32, is confident the fight will happen this year once the coronavirus crisis is contained.
“Whenever the world gets back to normal, whatever normal may consist of after this pandemic, then that’s when this fight is going to happen,” Fury stated..
“This fight has been brewing for a long time. They’ve been avoiding me for a long time and now it’s finally got to happen.
“We saw the Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao fight, we were waiting for that fight for 10 years. When it finally happened, I believe Pacquiao was past his best. It maybe should have happened four or five years earlier.
“So hopefully we get to go one-on-one combat with not only the two best heavyweights out there but two heavyweights who are in their prime and not past it.”
