It has only been a week since Anthony Joshua gloriously knocked out Wladimir Klitschko to secure the IBO and WBA belts alongside his IBF belt, and he's deserved captured a lot of the spotlight from around the world.

Tyson Fury is such a man with his attention on Joshua as he seeks to reclaim lost glory from the troubles of last year.

The Gypsy King, 28, is currently training in Marbella with WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders, shedding the pounds he gained due to depression and drug problems last year, leading to his boxing license being revoked.

Fury is aiming for a July comeback, but the Mirror reports that a potential mega match up with Joshua has been penciled in for 2018.

"I'm out here for the foreseeable future, running, doing circuits, padwork, sparring. I'll be back on the July 8 Copper Box show headlined by Billy Joe Saunders. I'll have a few comeback fights, two or three, while I'm waiting for Joshua," Fury told British Boxers, as per The Mail.

'There's no money in anybody else, I want 'Mr Muscles'.'

The prospect of an all-British heavyweight bout for the titles would be huge, with the story of AJ's status vs Fury's comeback believed to be worth in the region of £30 million, which is a big source of motivation alongside the need to restore his reputation.

He added: "I can be the best Tyson Fury again, it didn't slip away, I just couldn't be bothered no more, it was s*** and I didn't value it."

"But now there's £30million involved. I was a shadow of my former glory, but now I'm on my way back. With me and Joshua, one looks the part, one is the part."

As he took a sly dig at the stocky Joshua, he followed it up by comparing both of their victories over Klitschko, with Fury (obviously) denouncing Joshua's skills as a boxer.

"My win over (Klitschko) was a lot better, a better boxing display," Fury continued.

"He never hit me, but he hit AJ with a million punches and nearly knocked him out. He definitely did expose him."

"I hope (promoter) Eddie Hearn protects Joshua, because the first decent man he fights who's not 41 beats him."

"Deontay Wilder, Joseph Parker, any one of these bums would beat him."

Wow, shots fired. But it's only a matter of time before we find out who hits the hardest.
