Anthony Joshua didn’t have to wait long for a reply after calling out Tyson Fury.
Taking to the microphone directly after his win, Joshua already shouted “Tyson Fury, where you at baby?”
In a slightly subdued fashion for Fury, Joshua has received his reply.

Ever self aware, Fury was quick to realise his role of pantomime villain in the eventual build up.

Speaking from his training camp in Marbella which he is sharing with WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders. Fury has shared his thoughts on Joshua’s performance and his own chances in a fight against his fellow British fighter
“It was an excellent fight, very entertaining and enjoyable and I was screaming for AJ to smash him … I wonder what people would be saying today if Klitschko had done him in the sixth.”
“AJ did really well to come back but I am not 41 or getting old,” Fury said. “He is just a pumped-up weightlifter but (Klitschko) couldn’t land one of those of those hooks on me, at all.
“I would just like to congratulate AJ for getting through the nip-and-tuck, life-and-death situation, against an old man, so well done.”
“But let’s face it, I am the man, the number one in the division. There can only ever be one heavyweight, especially in our part of the world, and it’s me. It definitely isn’t a pumped-up heavyweight, I can tell you that.”
Who’s excited for a potential Fury vs Joshua fight?
