Tyson Fury may find the delay to his fight with Anthony Joshua “to his detriment or his benefit”, Andy Lee has questioned.
WBC champion Fury and IBF, WBA and WBO titleholder Joshua’s teams are reviewing the paperwork to agree an undisputed heavyweight ruler, and promoter Eddie Hearn hopes to make a formal announcement this week.
Asked if he was worrying that the fight would fail to materialise, Lee said: “It’s inevitable that it will happen.
“I don’t know if it’s to his detriment or his benefit that this wait has happened.
“He will be ready to unleash the fury when this fight is on!”
Fury hasn’t fought since his destruction of Deontay Wilder in February 2019.
Hearn said on Saturday night: “We’re all systems go. This fight is on, this fight is happening. As I told everyone last week, back and forwards with the drafts.
“I believe you’ll get an announcement next week. I don’t know what else to tell you.
“He hasn’t stopped training, he hasn’t skipped a beat,” Lee said.
“You think: ‘Where is the ceiling?’ But he keeps going and going and going.
“He is physically in great shape.”
