Fury uses Joshua’s own boast against him as fight deadline approaches

2 min read

Tyson Fury has poked fun at Anthony Joshua after topping the latest Ring Magazine rankings.

The Gypsy King has referred to himself as “the boss” just weeks after Joshua too called himself the same name.

Fury was named as the heavyweight king ahead of Joshua and then Deontay Wilder.

The Brits, seen by many as the two standouts in their division, are looking to set up a much anticipated contest this year.

Both have traded verbal blows as they look to gain the psychological advantage.

And Fury’s “boss” reference on Twitter looks to have been a response to Joshua’s comments on Sky News.

He said: “We’re working on a date for around June.

“So if Tyson is serious, which I think he is, he’ll know where to come and find the boss.

“I’m ready. I’m really looking forward to competition, all I want to do is fight, fight, fight.”

The pair are set to sign a two-fight deal that will place all four belts on the line.

Fury has not been seen in the ring since he stopped Wilder in Las Vegas over a year ago. Joshua meanwhile beat Kubrat Pulev in December.

When quizzed on the fight details Hearn told ESPN last month: “We’d like to get a site deal confirmed in the next month.

“The hard part is always getting everybody to put pen to paper.

“But this was a major effort from all parties to get this over the line. You had rival promoters, rival networks and rival fighters.

“I actually feel we’ve done the hard part.

“Speaking for myself, Anthony and his team at 258 management, I know how hard we’ve worked these last couple of months.

“I just feel that this fight is so big it’s not a difficult sell.”
