Tyson Fury may end up fighting Anthony Joshua after all – but only once he has “smoked” Deontay Wilder, according to the Gypsy King himself.
Fury has taken to Twitter to tell Anthony Joshua that he is “24/7 365” ready for a bare-knuckle fight with the WBA, IBF and WBO champion.
The message read: "I’ll smoke Wilder first, then you will get yours as well."
Joshua responded by mocking the 32-year-old, posting a video showing Fury observing a ringside fight behind a safety barrier.
The Londoner had told Fury that he would “slap his bald head” if they were to meet, to which the Manchester-born fighter hit back by saying “please come and try, bum.”
Joshua also publicly questioned Fury’s decision to announce their fight, writing: “If there was an arbitration going on, why announce to the world we are fighting!”
Fury addressed the question but wouldn’t reveal the reason, saying: “Not going in to the details online!”
After an eventful week in boxing, it is still unclear if the Joshua-Fury fight, or if the Gypsy King will be fighting Wilder instead.
The Daily Star exclusively broke the news that a court ruling had sided with the American, who demanded a trilogy fight from Fury, after the Brit won their rematch in February 2020.

Fury had walked away from the trilogy after Wilder’s team twice delayed the date, but the court sided with the 35-year-old and ordered a rematch before 15 September.
That led to the public spat, when Joshua called the Gypsy King a “fraud” and a “liar” for leading the public into thinking their fight was going to take place on 14 August.
Fury responded by accusing both Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn of being liars, and subsequently challenged the 30-year-old to a fight with “bare knuckles” until “one man quits” this weekend, which appears unlikely to happen.
