Anthony Joshua has some home truths for two of his closest rivals in boxing as the more business like “AJ” starts to come out.

This more open and outspoken Joshua seems to have started a few weeks back on Twitter when he referenced Tyson Fury as a “fat f***.”

He’s since been on vacation in Dubai and has been doing business out there with different sponsorship activation deals on his Instagram account.

But fans care about what he’s doing in the ring and more importantly, who he’s fighting.

It looks as though it will be a heavyweight title unification next up with New Zealand’s Joseph Parker but Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are also firmly in his sights for 2018.

Speaking to Kugan Cassius of IFL TV, Joshua said:

“I’m going to knock out Fury. I’m going to slap Deontay Wilder all over the ring. I’m going to eat him alive. What is he? 15 stone? It’s mad (laughs). What’s Fury? 27 stone and he calls me a weight lifter?”

He continued while laughing:

“It’s mad. These boys can’t talk. I’m serious about what I do. As I said, I’m not into the business of ducking no one. The man who talks less it the man you need to be worried about. Talk is cheap.”
