Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua trade (slightly petty)Twitter blows

Not for the first time in the last few years, Tyson Fury's Twitter activity is making headlines.

The 28-year-old tweeted on Tuesday afternoon that Anthony Joshua, who fights Wladimir Klitschko on April 29, was a 'poor man's Frank Bruno', including a picture of the ex-WBC title with it.

Joshua responded, quoting Fury's tweet with the message: '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.'

Of course, that wasn't the end of matters, with Fury firing back another tweet, describing Joshua as a *breathes in* 'paper champ and a paper chinned weightlifting rudeboy wannabe badman'.


Lovely stuff.

Joshua responded again, claiming that the reason the pair hadn't already fought each other was down to Fury, not him. The 27-year-old also demanded to know the date of Fury's return to the sport.

Something tells us that this probably isn't the end of this one...
