Anthony Joshua tells students he would 'crack their jaw' after Tyson Fury taunt
"Watch your mouths because you don't know who you're talking to sometimes..."
A video has emerged showing what appears to be Anthony Joshua in a heated confrontation with a group of students after he was reportedly heckled as he walked past their halls of residence.
The students from Loughborough University are said to have taunted the former world heavyweight champion form an open window, accusing him of being too scared to fight Tyson Fury.
The video, which first appeared in The Sun, shows Joshua standing in a flat as he talks to a group of students.
"Remember you’re running your mouth because when I start cracking your glass jaws, none of you will like it," he is heard saying.
"Watch your mouths because you don’t know who you’re talking to sometimes."

Joshua preparing for Usyk rematch at the university
A witness told The Sun: "I don’t think they expected him to retaliate and I don’t think they’ll be doing something like that again. But why would you target one of the toughest guys on the planet?"
Joshua has been using Loughborough University's facilities in preparation for his eagerly anticipated rematch with Oleksandr Usyk later this summer.
Joshua has never faced Fury in the ring, despite the possibility often being discussed. A bout appeared set to take place last summer for all four world titles, only for Fury to be ordered to face American Deontay Wilder for a third time instead.
Fury's last fight saw him beat Dillian Whyte at Wembley last month. He has since insisted he has retired from fighting, claiming he would even turn down the opportunity to face Joshua or Usyk.
