Tyson Fury has vowed to quit on his stool if his fight with Anthony Joshua goes past three rounds — such is his confidence in an early night.
The heavyweight superstars are still in negotiations for an undisputed title decider in the summer.
There was a moment of worry on Friday when Fury’s American promoter Bob Arum said plans for the bout were “dead in the water”.
Spoke to Bob Arum, who tells @SInow he has "absolutely no confidence" that a deal for Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua can be completed in time for a summer fight. Says the Saudi Arabia deal "will take months to get sorted out."
But Joshua’s representative Eddie Hearn has insisted negotiations are moving in the right direction and a later report indicated a deal to hold the fight in Saudi Arabia in August would be completed in the next few days.

Fury’s wild offer to Joshua
Fury is currently training in Las Vegas and as talks drag on appeared frustrated on social media as he called out rival AJ.
“While I’m on a rant, I may as well call out one more person; a big useless dosser, not a real fighting man, hype job, bodybuild, crossfit, big, ugly s***house,” Fury said.
“And that’s Anthony Joshua. AJ, if you’re out there let’s make this fight happen you big dosser, you big s***house, bum dosser.

“I’m going to smash your face in too, and there’s not one thing you can do about it. Prove me wrong sucker, prove me wrong. I’m No. 1, numero uno.”
Fury then added: “Just been thinking, another message for AJ. AJ, if you go past three rounds with me, I’ll quit in the corner.
“Because that’s how confident I am of taking you cold out in the first two, three rounds. Out, like a light switch.”
Fury to Hearn: Keep s***ing off Canelo
Fury also launched an extraordinary X-rated rant at rival promoter Hearn, who had criticised him in a recent interview.
“Tyson Fury’s getting right up my nostrils as well,” Hearn told talkSPORT. “He’s a great fighter and he’s a great talker as well.
“I just think when I look at those two together (Joshua and Fury) – you’ve got one guy working behind closed doors in Finchley with a dream to become undisputed champion.
“And then you’ve got another bloke who’s swanning around in a suite at the encore in Las Vegas, wearing terrible Versace shirts, screaming on social media all day calling everyone a dosser.”

Fury, who is supporting close friend Billy Joe Saunders as he prepares for his unified super-middleweight clash against the Hearn-promoted Canelo Alvarez next month, fired back.
“This is another message to Eddie ‘the tit’ Hearn,” Fury said.
“Eddie, talking about me, living in the hotel in Las Vegas, wearing the Versace shirts.
“Yes I’m absolutely guilty, here in my 6000 square foot hotel room, I’m wearing Versace every day.
“You know, if you keep s***ing Canelo off you’ll be able to get a couple of these shirts yourself.
“Or if you want, I can borrow you a couple, don’t worry about it, and maybe give you a little bit of swag too.”

The 32-year-old then predicted his mate Saunders can deliver one of boxing’s biggest shocks and beat Canelo.
“Anyway, keep s***ing Canelo off, and when my boy Billy Joe Saunders gives him an absolute boxing lesson and knocks him out, you’ll have egg on your face,” Fury said.
“You’re backing the wrong horse, backing the Mexican over the Brit. You sausage.”
