Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury had a tense phone conversation, according to Tyson Fury

Fury claims that received a call from Joshua, with their interaction being pretty tense.

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury revealed the details of a recent phone call with Anthony Joshua, who holds the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles.

The ‘Gypsy King’ alleges that Joshua tried to “bully” him during the call.

“I have definitely encountered the true Anthony Joshua,” Fury told Queensberry’s The Lowdown. “He’s not a nice person, he’s sort of a bully. He’s someone who thought he was gonna put the bluff on me. That’s what type of person he is – I once had the opportunity to see the real ‘Femi’.

“He phoned me up one day in a mood to say he was gonna do this to me and do that to me. It didn’t fare too well for him, let’s just say that – just out of the blue, he decided to give me a call, a telling off call.

“I don’t think he liked what he heard on the end of it, there’d be no telling me off anyway. I just told him the truth and the truth always hurts.”

It’s not the first time where Fury and Joshua traded words over the phone.

They were close to finalizing a showdown for a date in August in Saudi Arabia – but the contest fell apart when an arbitrator ordered Fury to honor a rematch clause due to Deontay Wilder,

Fury will face Wilder in a trilogy fight on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Joshua will return to action later this month, when he makes a mandatory defense on September 25th against Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Should they win their respective fights, a full division unification clash could take place in the first half of 2022.
