TYSON FURY has reacted to the four-year anniversary of Anthony Joshua's x-rated message urging him to get back in the ring.

Seven months after becoming unified heavyweight champ against Wladimir Klitschko, Joshua called out the Gypsy King – who had ballooned up to 28 stone and was battling with addiction – on Twitter.



He tweeted: "@Tyson_Fury get fit you fat f**k."

The tweet had the desired effect as it motivated Fury to shed the pounds and make a comeback, which he did in June 2018 with the help of former trainer Ben Davidson.

BT Sport's Boxing account posted a tweet reminding their followers of the anniversary, which Fury liked and quote tweeted.

He wrote: "With the right mindset and focus you can achieve anything."

After returning to the ring against Sefer Seferi, Fury would go on to face Francesco Pianeta before his first war with Deontay Wilder – which ended in a controversial split draw.

Back-to-back victories over Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin followed for the Wythenshawe warrior before his emphatic dethroning of Wilder last February.

The pair renewed their rivalry in October and took part in one of the greatest heavyweight fights of the modern era.

Fan favourite Fury came out of the Sin City showdown on top, registering an 11th-round KO victory after a thrilling back-and-forth affair.

It's understood Fury's next fight is being lined up for March.

Brit Dillian Whyte is on course to be the 33-year-old's next opponent, although promoter Frank Warren insists the former unified champ is in no rush to fight the Brixton banger.

He told talkSPORT: “I don’t think anything will happen until the WBC has their convention, which is later this month and I don’t think that’s going to happen until then.

“There’s no rush and there’s no rush from Tyson’s perspective.

"As I’ve said to everybody, it doesn’t matter what anybody says. He will do what he wants to do.

“If the deal is right he’ll do it. If he doesn’t want to do it, he won’t do it. He’s his own man.”
