Tyson Fury has accused Anthony Joshua of “s***ting himself on live televison” after the British boxer knocked out Kubrat Pulev in their heavyweight title fight.
Joshua delivered a ninth round stoppage win over his Bulgarian opponent, after already sending Pulev to the canvas three times in the bout.
Pulev did well to recover after being knocked down twice in the third round, but his valiant effort wasn’t enough as Joshua claimed a convincing win eventually.
The win sets up a title fight between Joshua and fellow heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, but the 31-year-old seemed hesitant at first when asked about a potential match up.
Fury didn’t need to be asked twice to insult his potential opponent after the slight hesitation, calling him out in a video he posted on Twitter.

“Well there you go everyone, Anthony Joshua s*** himself on live TV. He was asked if he wanted the fight and he went round the bushes and put his a*** on the edge.
“I want the fight. I want the fight next, I’ll knock him out inside three rounds, he’s a big bum dosser. I can’t wait to knock him out,” Fury said.
‘I’m ready for anything’
Joshua did eventually say he was interested in a fight with the ‘Gypsy King’, saying he was ready to fight anyone in order to collect all the world heavyweight title belts.

“I’m ready for anything; less talk, more action. I started in 2013 and have been chasing all the belts and handling all the mandatories.
“Whoever has the belt I will compete with them. If that’s Tyson Fury, then let it be Tyson Fury,” Joshua told Sky Sports.
Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, confirmed that contact would be made with Fury’s team, potentially setting up a fight for 2021.
“Since he came into the office he’s wanted to be undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
“We know what we have to do, starting from tomorrow; we make the Tyson Fury fight; it’s the only fight to be made in boxing.
“It’s the biggest fight in British boxing history. I promise you, he wants it. He’s the best heavyweight in the world,” Hearn commented.
