AFTER recently engaging in a war of words on Twitter with fellow British heavyweight star Tyson Fury, IBF titlist Anthony Joshua has opened up about his simmering rivalry with the currently out-of-action former world champ.

At a media session held at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield – where he is currently training for his April 29 Wembley Stadium superfight with ex-Fury victim Wladimir Klitschko – Joshua was asked what the biggest fight out there for him is. He only mentioned the name of one man in his response: “I think Tyson Fury, I think Tyson Fury.”

The pair clashed on social media after Fury branded Joshua “a poor man’s Frank Bruno”, referring to the former British heavyweight icon who some have compared to Anthony due to their similarly muscular physiques. Joshua did not take kindly to Tyson’s comment.
