Joshua vs Klitschko: Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury exchange social media jibes
Last Updated: 19/04/17 6:06am
Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have become embroiled in a heated verbal spat on social media.
With less than a fortnight until Joshua meets Wladimir Klitschko for the IBF and WBA 'super' heavyweight world title in front of 90,000 people at Wembley Stadium, live on Sky Sports Box Office on April 29, he has responded to a jibe from former title-holder Fury.
Fury, who beat Klitschko for his world heavyweight titles before being stripped of the IBF belt which Joshua now owns, likened his British rival to the popular former world champion Frank Bruno.
Fury is still suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control amid a UKAD investigation, blocking his proposed return to the ring. He has not competed since beating Klitschko in November 2015.
A loophole to obtain an Irish licence with the Boxing Union of Ireland has also been shut down, it has been confirmed.
