Tyson Fury’s hilarious response when Anthony Joshua told him he’d ‘knock him out’
Fury confirmed by tellingBT Sport: “I call him and sometimes I say, ‘What’s happening AJ, how are you mush?’
“Then we’ll have a little bit of back and forth and I’ll tell him I’m gonna knock him out.
“He tells me, ‘I’m gonna knock you out.’
“And I say, ‘After your last performance mush, you’ll need a lot of improvement to knock me out.’
“He has a little laugh. It’s a bit of banter, innit.”
Britain’s 30-year-old ‘lineal’ titlist went on to explain how he goes one step further and also phones up the likes of fellow heavyweight Dillian Whyte and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney.
Fury continued: “Just think about it, you’ve got all these heavyweight champions and all these famous sportspeople in your phone.
“You have a couple of beers, what are you gonna do? We’re only human. It’s just me having a bit of banter with the lads.
“I call Dillian Whyte, I call Wayne Rooney, I call Anthony Joshua, I call them all.”
