ANTHONY JOSHUA is itching to get his next fight lined up and has taken to Twitter to wind up potential opponents.

World heavyweight champion Joshua posted a string of tweets to Joseph Parker, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury as he looks to secure his next big-money bout.

The 28-year-old’s opening salvo – aimed at WBO heavyweight champion Parker – was a GIF of Kermit the Frog drinking tea.

WBC heavyweight Wilder was next on Joshua’s hitlist, with the Watford-born fighter posting a YouTube video of a lengthy interview during which he urged the American to set up a title fight between the two.

Dropping an F-bomb in the direction of an out-of-shape Fury in a third quick-fire tweet prompted a response from BoxNation presenter Kugan Cassius, which seemed to rile Joshua.

It was suggested by Cassius that people were seeing “the real Anthony Joshua this morning”, to which the boxer retorted: “The real anthony joshua? Because of what ?…. a swear word? Shut the f*** up.”

He later told Cassius to “pipe down” as the series of seemingly out-of-character tweets came to an end.
