Anthony Joshua has hit back at Tyson Fury after the controversial former boxer insulted Joshua on Twitter ahead of his title fight with Wladimir Klitschko.

Joshua is set to fight Klitschko for the IBF, WBA (Super) and IBO heavyweight belts at Wembley on April 29 and it will be Klitschko’s first time in the ring since Fury beat him on points in November 2015.

Fury, who vacated the title last year after he refused to fight mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov, clearly isn’t happy with Joshua inheriting his former title and accused Joshua of being a poor man’s Frank Bruno’ on Twitter.

Not one to take insults lying down Joshua has hit back at Fury savaging him for his recent inactivity after struggling with a series of issues.

He wrote on Twitter:

Typical Tyson Fury always talking BS around fight time. Same offer as last time. x2 ringside tickets, don’t bring a plus one – it’s for your fat ass.

The two then began to trade barbs with Fury accusing Joshua of being a ‘paper champ and paper chinned weightlifting rudeboy wannabe badman’ while Joshua for his part accused Fury of cowardice and challenging him to fight him when he was back.

Fury finished by saying:

You shouldn’t throw stones when you live in a glass house, deal with b****ko first then I’ll give you a boxing lesson, I promise. Good luck chump.

Yeah they were basically super childish online…
