Tyson Fury takes swipe at Anthony Joshua after bizarre video surfaces online

‘Proper sausage’

Tyson Fury mocked Anthony Joshua after the latest video of his training methods went viral.

Joshua marked his return to the ring with a win against Jermaine Franklin in April in his first fight since being beaten by Oleksandr Usyk the previous year.

The win was his first fight under his new coach, Derrick James, who trained him for the bout in Dallas, Texas.

AJ has since flown back out to James’ gym once again as he prepares for his next fight – which has been scheduled for August 12.

On Monday, the 33-year-old posted footage of him training, using a mattress as a heavy bag but shortly after uploading to Instagram, Fury was straight int the comments.

Replying underneath the post the Gypsy King said: “Proper sausage” followed by three crying with laughter react emojis.

Anthony Joshua

Although August 12 is a confirmed date for Joshua’s next fight, his opponent has yet to be revealed, although reports expect it to be Dillian Whyte.

As part of his plans to return to the top, AJ plans to take on Whyte in a rematch before setting up a mouth watering tie against Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia.

Should a deal with Whyte break down the likes of Agit Kabaye and one other unnamed heavyweight have been touted as an alternative.

Fury meanwhile is reportedly in contention to take on former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in an exhibition match.

Speaking about the prospect of Fury vs Ngannou, Joshua’s promoter Hearn told Boxing Social: “Yes, I believe so, this is what I’ve heard.

“It will be an exhibition apparently, no knockdowns or anything. I don’t know, I’m only telling you what I’ve heard.

“Who knows what’s what, but I think that is apparently what is gonna be the next fight. Disappointing, but it is what it is.”
