Joshua accepts terms for Fury fight: management team

They wrote on social media in a message retweeted by Joshua: "258 and @MatchroomBoxing can confirm, on behalf of @anthonyjoshua, that we accepted all terms presented to us by Fury's team for a fight Dec 3rd last Friday.
"Due to the Queen's passing (death of Queen Elizabeth II), it was agreed to halt all communication. We are awaiting a response."
Joshua, 32, suffered his second straight defeat to the Ukrainian in Saudi Arabia last month and had planned to make a relatively low-key comeback.
The unbeaten Fury announced he was retiring on his 34th birthday last month, having previously performed a number of U-turns over his future in the sport.
But in a video posted on social media last week he appeared to confirm he had reversed his decision again as he challenged Joshua to a showdown.
