TYSON FURY is on a 'business trip' with 'legend' Bob Arum.
The Gypsy King, 32, has been in Las Vegas of late, as talks over his summer unification bout with Anthony Joshua have stalled.
An imminent announcement has been expected relatively soon, with AJ's promoter Eddie Hearn having said that the contract is on 'its fourth draft' and 'ready to be delivered'.
Fury jet setting on 'business' with Arum is bound to get fans excited that things really are getting closer to being confirmed.
But Arum, 89, has cast doubt on the hotly-anticipated unification bout – despite Fury and AJ having signed a two-fight agreement last month.
Arum even hinted that fans may have to sit through yet another Fury fight with Deontay Wilder, even though their trilogy bout previously looked dead in the water.
He told BoxingScene: "Maybe we’ll breathe some life into Wilder, and Fury will fight Wilder and Joshua will fight [Oleksandr] Usyk.
“Eddie Hearn is busy trying to sell the London Bridge.
“Let me tell you – last time I talked to Eddie was early last week and he said he was going to have a signed agreement from the Saudis in 24 hours.
"Well, he’s a little late. Wouldn’t you be pessimistic if you haven’t heard from him or anybody for a week?
"We’re the promoter with Frank [Warren] of Fury and we haven’t heard from Eddie in a week.”

Warren also cast doubt on Hearn's claims, telling talkSPORT: “Look, every day I’m being told – it’s like, ‘It’s in the post.’
“It’s not arrived and that’s where we are. I’ll believe it when I see it. We’re being told it’ll be here.
“I know Tyson’s had enough of hanging around. He wants to fight in June or July and that’s what will happen if this thing doesn’t get resolved very quickly.
“We all want the fight. We’re all working, moving heaven and Earth to get it over the line, but at the moment the offer hasn’t come through.
“Maybe the two guys have gotta look – if the offer doesn’t come through – to look at how we make this fight viable.
“Everyone’s expectation levels maybe have to reassess.”
Despite being determined to be active, Fury has not been inside a ring since defeating Wilder in February 2020.
