Anthony Joshua insists he "ain't signed no contract" amid reports he has agreed to step aside for Tyson Fury to face Oleksandr Usyk in return for £15million.
The alleged agreement was reported by The Telegraph on Sunday, claiming Joshua would forego a rematch with Usyk for the three heavyweight title belts he lost to the Ukrainian in September.
Such a move would allow Usyk to instead take on Fury in a huge unification bout.
Promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports he has a meeting planned with Joshua to discuss "a number of proposals and options", but the British fighter has dismissed talk of a £15m deal.
Indeed, Joshua, describing himself as "the man who handles my business", also revealed frustrations at some of the reporting around his situation.
In widely reported quotes, he said: "You know what's bad about all these interviews I see?
"I see certain interviews that quote what I said, and I think to myself: 'I ain't done no interviews. Where did this person get this information from?'
"I'm hearing people saying, 'AJ accepts £15m to step aside'. I ain't signed no contract, I ain't seen no contract.
"I'm the man in control of my destiny, I'm a smart individual and I make calculated decisions every step of the way."
