Tyson Fury immediately trolls new heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua

That didn't take long

We wouldn’t be surprised if Tyson scheduled this tweet earlier today.

Anthony Joshua is the new IBF world heavyweight champion. The 26-year-old made light work of Charles Martin on Saturday night, dispatching the American early in the second round with ruthless efficiency.

Joshua is now undefeated in 16 professional bouts, and won the belt that was stripped from Tyson Fury last December.

The Manchester boxer lost the title when he refused to fight the mandatory challenger following his upset victory against Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury still holds the WBO, WBA, and IBO titles though, and seems to be setting his eye on a bout with Joshua. The Olympic champion had just won his fight when Fury tweeted to say Joshua “still looked like a bodybuilder” and that he wants the chance to “slay the lamb.”
