Tyson Fury has continued his persistent calling out of Anthony Joshua – this time deploying the services of an impressionist to put the pressure on AJ to sign an agreement to fight.
In a video posted on social media today, Fury sits alongside impressionist Al Foran, who – as the likes of Donald Trump, Mike Tyson and even Fury’s father John – implores Joshua to accept a fight with ‘The Gypsy King’

The comical video surfaced in the aftermath of Fury giving Joshua a deadline of the end of the day to accept a fight on either November 26th or December 3rd – with AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn saying previously they would prefer to fight on December 17th.
Fans had been growing cautiously optimistic about the possibility of the mega fight finally getting made, especially after Eddie Hearn publicly accepted Fury’s offer of a 60/40 purse split.
Given the WBC world champion’s previous form, it’s hard to know whether or not the deadline is one to be taken seriously or is just another example of classic Fury mind games.
