What is Tyson Fury's obsession with Anthony Joshua?

Almost immediately after AJ's impressive victory over Alexander Povetkin on Saturday night, the Gypsy King posted a video on Instagram labelling him a "bum" and "slow".

Fury also said that there's no chance of him and Joshua ever fighting each other seeing as he wasn't mentioned as a potential next opponent.

"I think it's safe to say now that team Joshua or Matchroom will never fight The Gypsy King. Never," said Fury. "There was no mention that they'll fight Tyson Fury, the lineal champion of the world.

"It's alright fighting men 39 years old and half your size. Tonight is pure evidence that I'm fighting the best heavyweight out there in Deontay Wilder. Joshua is not even close.

"He's slow, methodical and ponderous at times. Powerful, yes, but they all are. Very very clear to see, avoid me at all costs.

"If I was you Joshua, I would avoid me. Because I would jab your face off. You bum. I've never seen a bigger bum in my whole life."


Joshua responded to Fury by saying he's up for fighting the 30-year-old but only when he's ready - which he isn't at the moment.

In another interview AJ also questioned why Fury insists on calling him out on social media all the time.

Well, Fury posted about Joshua again on Sunday, this time on Twitter, only to delete the tweet an hour later. Luckily screenshots were taken.


"I have to say the saddest thing ever the British fight fans will never get to see Fury vs Joshua," he penned on Sunday. "That's a crying shame!

"It's the biggest British fight in history of boxing in Briton but Sky [and] Matchroom have robbed the paying public again. Ask your self why don't they want this?"

Joshua has made it very clear that he's open to the fight and if Fury beats Deontay Wilder on December 1, it can happen next April.

However, it sounds more like Fury doesn't want it and that's exactly the point boxing fans were making before he deleted the tweet. It's just getting a bit embarrassing now.
