Joshua to Fury: Get fit you fat f***

RIVALS: Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury

ANTHONY JOSHUA has called out Tyson Fury, telling him to get fit so a much-anticipated all-British heavyweight showdown can take place.

Fury is still the subject of a UK Anti-Doping Agency investigation but both fighters have made no secret of their desire to put on a lucrative fight, potentially next year.

Already the pair have exchanged comments this morning. WBA, IBF and IBO champion Joshua tweeted: “@Tyson_Fury get fit you fat f**k.”

Any showdown between the two is still far off as Fury is unable to compete following a positive test for a banned steroid, which he claims was the result of eating uncastrated wild boar.

In addition Fury, who originally dethroned Wladimir Klitschko as heavyweight champion in 2015, has not fought for two years and has ballooned in weight.

Meanwhile, Joshua insists he will not duck any fight, whether againsts Fury or WBC champion Deontay Wilder, who called out the Brit boxer after his title defence.

Of a possible Wilder fight, Joshua said: “I’m serious about becoming undisputed heavyweight champion. It’s no problem if Wilder wants to fight early next year.”
