Anthony Joshua might have dropped Kubrat Pulev a number of times en route to his knockout win tonight in London — but Tyson Fury wasn’t impressed.

Joshua’s win would seemingly put him in line for two contests with Fury over 2021, in what will likely be the biggest match-ups in world boxing. That said, Joshua seemed non-commital to the bouts when asked post-fight, and Fury — who was watching at home — seemed to pick up on it.

“There you go everyone, Anthony Joshua just shit himself live on television,” Fury said, speaking on his social media. “He got asked did he want the fight and he went around the bushes and put his arse in the hedge. I want the fight. I want the fight next. I’ll knock him out inside three rounds. He’s a big bum dosser, I can’t wait to knock him out.”

What comes next is uncertain, as is always the case in boxing, but an all-British meeting between the two heavyweight champions is a mouth-watering affair for any fan of men punching each other.
