Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury Get Heated On Social Media Following Canceled Fight

Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury sparred over social media following the likely cancellation of their trilogy fight.

The pair looked set to compete in a highly-anticipated heavyweight title unification clash in August with Fury even announcing it.

However, an arbitrator ruled that Deontay Wilder was contractually owed a trilogy fight with Fury which all but ended any chances of boxing fans seeing the trilogy next.

Although Joshua took the news well, he did decide to take a jab at Fury on social media which led to back-and-forth between the domestic rivals.

“@Tyson_Fury the world now sees you for the fraud you are. You’ve let boxing down! You lied to the fans and led them on. Used my name for clout not a fight. Bring me any championship fighter who can handle their business correctly.”

“@anthonyjoshua your more full of sh*t that Eddie, Spouting absolute sh*te! your full team knew there was an Arbitration going on, it was out of my hands! but i tell you what if i’m a fraud let’s fight this weekend bare knuckles till 1 man quits? let’s put up 20 mill each!!! 🖕🏻🖕🏻”

“If there was an arbitration going on, why announce to the world we are fighting! The fight was signed! UNDISPUTED. Bare knuckle? You’re a good kid, don’t play with me Luke! I’ll slap your bald head & you’ll do nothing! Waste man.”

“not going in to the details on line! you’ll slap me about will you dosser please come and try Bum, i’m waiting… Femi AKA Bottlejob! 24/7 365. Ready. i’ll smoke wilder first then you will get yours aswell.”

Hopefully, we’ll get to see these two go at it beyond social media in the future.
