Insult aside to Tyson Fury. Anthony Joshua suggesting he was trying to sell his WBO title

Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has has opened fire on Tyson Fury, labeling him a ‘fat f***’. The IBF and WBA (Super) king took to Twitter on Thursday to slam Joseph Parker and took aim at Fury too.

Parker claimed he had opened talks with Joshua over a potential unification fight, but the Brit has fired back at the New Zealander, insisting no offer has been made.

Joshua prompted a response from Parker after suggesting he was trying to sell his WBO title.

‘You hear like Joseph Parker saying ‘oh they offered like 20 per cent of the pot and I’m not happy with that – I’m not fighting him for 20 per cent’,’ Joshua told iFL TV.

‘Are you trying to sell yourself to fight? Are you trying to sell your belt? Some people contradict what they’re saying.’ Joshua took aim at Parker and then decided he would have a pop at British rival, Fury.

Fury is in no fit shape to fight as he is and, by his own admission, is about seven stone overweight.

The former unified world champion is also battling with UKAD over a potential doping violation and does not hold a boxing licence.

But, that has not stopped the 29-year-old from repeatedly calling out Joshua and it seems he has finally engineered a response.

It is quite of out character for Joshua to swear, let alone insult another fighter. The Brit often garners praise for his attitude and disinterest in trashing his opponents, but all the talk of fight offers has clearly ruffled his feathers.

Joshua has insisted he is ready to fight any and all of Parker, Fury and Deontay Wilder, but not one of them have made any concrete offer.
