Anthony Joshua’s Twitter feud with Tyson Fury on Tuesday made for very interesting reading.

It started when Fury called Joshua a poor man’s Frank Bruno. To see AJ reply was rather surprising - he’s rarely engaged in proper spats during his professional boxing career - but he did.

And he didn’t hold back, either.

"Typical Tyson Fury, always talking BS around fight time,” the 27-year-old said.

“Same offer as last time. Two ringside tickets, don't bring a plus one, it's for your fat ass."

Fury, who might simply be using Joshua’s name to stay relevant, hit back by saying: “I might be fat, but you're a paper champ and paper-chinned weightlifting rudeboy, wannabe badman.

"Know your place chump! Or I'll come back and (KO) you."

Joshua then hinted at a fight in the future against Fury, saying the Gypsy King is the only reason they haven’t fought yet.

The 18-0 star said: “Shut up and give me a date when you'll be back!

“You're the only reason we haven't had a fight yet! Be about what you say. I ain't going nowhere."

Biggest fight of Joshua's life

Joshua took a break from his preparations for his upcoming fight against Wladimir Klitschko to engage in a war of words with Fury, who hasn’t fought since he beat the Ukrainian in 2015.

His bout against Klitschko, at the O2 Arena on April 29, is the biggest fight of his career. And he’ll cement his status as a superstar with a victory over the 41-year-old.

Joshua: Klitschko isn't my biggest fight

But in Joshua’s opinion, Klitschko isn’t the biggest fight he could have right now. He believes a bout against Fury would exceed the challenge he’s currently preparing for.

"I think Tyson Fury is the biggest fight for me," Joshua said, via the Metro. "If it were up to me, that would have been the fight happening this summer.

"That’s what I thought. I was planning for a massive showdown with Tyson Fury, but he had other plans and I just had to carry on. When he returns, I’m sure I’ll still be here."
