Fury also provided a running commentary of AJ’s win over Joseph Parker.

Last night Anthony Joshua beat Joseph Parker to become the WBA, IBO, IBF and now WBO World Champion. It was his first professional fight to go the distance and the unanimous judges decision took his record to 21-0.

Following the fight, AJ was in little doubt over who he wanted to share the ring with next.

“[Deontay] Wilder or [Tyson] Fury, either one,” Joshua said when asked who he wanted.

“What would I have to do to beat Wilder? Get him in the ring and I’ll knock him spark out.”

Obviously, everyone is hyped for the Fury fight. The ‘Gypsy King’ will return to the ring this summer and provided a running commentary on Saturday night’s unification bout in Cardiff on his Instagram stories.

They have since been deleted, but he said: “Just watching these two and I’m telling you, they’re a pair of wooden tops. They’re not even good enough to be my sparring partners. They’re a pair of bums. No panache, no flair, no show. Waste of money.

“There’s only one Tyson Fury for a reason. This is Mac year, 2018. They’re a pack of bums. Parker is what Parker is, he’s a young lad trying. ‘AJ’ is a wooden top. He ain’t no superstar. I am the man.

“This is round 10 and neither of them look like they want to win the fight. Get in and win the fight!

“Again, another shit round. They’re charging £20 a pop for this, this is a fucking joke. Hard-earned money, come on! There’s no panache, no flair, no razzmatazz.

“I could beat ‘AJ’ in my comeback. Treble the jab up, swing the right hand up, downstairs and upstairs. He ain’t good enough to be a sparring partner, a wooden top, bum city, piece of shit.

“We’re in round 11 and we’re still waiting for the fight to catch fire. Come on, boys. Get to it! Get stuck in! Look at this referee. Where have you found him? He needs sacking!

“That was a load of shit. Anthony Joshua is a bum! He’s a wooden top. I’ll jab his nut in and knock him spark out. The referee needs sacking. Joseph Parker settled for a loss. It was a shit fight.

“That was a shit fight and a shit performance from both fighters. Listen, ‘AJ’, please don’t fight Wilder because he’ll knock you spark out and take my £50 million.”

And, following the commentary, he has now posted a picture responding to the fight.
