Fury wants a fight with Joshua

Fury wants a fight with Joshua”

In April, Joshua pulled off the biggest win of his career when he stopped Klitschko in eleven rounds to unify the IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight titles.

In an Instagram video, Fury was boastful about how he beat Klitschko rather unlike Joshua who got off the canvas to defeat the same opponent.

Fury snatched the titles away from Klitschko in 2015 though while he produced a brilliant performance on the road, his fight was largely criticised for the lack of action.

'Better to win and be boring than to get dropped all over the floor and scraping a win.

A bout with Kubrat Pulev has been lined up as an alternative fight for Joshua. "He didn't throw a punch. He didn't come to fight", Joshua exclusively told Sky Sports.

"He just walked around the ring for like 12 rounds, it's boring".

'Winning is winning. Whether you win by an inch or a mile - it's still winning'.

"His stock didn't rise".

Fury made a string of offensive comments on social media and in an interview with the Daily Mail in 2015. A big bully is what you are you big dosser.

"[Muhammad] Ali had words for a man like you, they were 'Uncle Tom, '" Fury said. "The man who can't speak his own mind, the plastic Nigerian..." I've seen your type many times. Promoter Eddie Hearn has pretty much confirmed the fight for the final quarter of 2017 with the likes of Wales, Nigeria and China all in the running to host the eagerly-awaited sequel.

The 28-year-old 6ft 9in heavyweight boxer, whose last professional fight was in that victory against Klitschko, blasted Joshua, saying: 'I see AJ talking [in a way that will] get a smack again - saying my fight was boring with Vladimir (sic). [This] Gypsy man represents the world.

Fury has been out of the ring since the Klitschko win. He lost his boxing license, and his world titles, after admitting to mental health and substance abuse issues.

Fury, who clinched the IBF heavyweight title against the giant Ukrainian on a unanimous points decision after 12 rounds in Dusseldorf almost 18 months ago, then saw the British Boxing Board of Control suspend his boxing license following his decision to vacate the WBA (unified), WBO and IBO heavyweight titles.
