With their fight in the balance, world heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are trading blows on social media instead of the ring.
The ongoing saga surrounding Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, and all of the world heavyweight championship belts took a wild turn recently As the arbitration ordered Fury to grant Wilder his contracted rematch.
Joshua posted on Twitter, “The world now sees you for the fraud you are. You’ve let boxing down! You lied to the fans and led them on. Used my name for clout, not a fight. Bring me any championship fighter who can handle their business correctly.”
“If there was an arbitration going on, why announce to the world we are fighting. The fight was signed.”
“I’ll slap your bald head and you’ll do nothing!”
.@Tyson_Fury the world now sees you for the fraud you are.
You’ve let boxing down!
You lied to the fans and led them on. Used my name for clout not a fight.
Bring me any championship fighter who can handle their business correctly.

Tyson Fury replied, “You are more full of [rubbish] than [promoter Eddie Hearn]. Your full team knew there was an arbitration going on, it was out of my hands. If I’m a fraud let’s fight this weekend bare knuckles until one man quits.”
Anthony Joshua to fight Oleksandr Usyk
The ruling threatens to wipe the proposed four-belt unification between “AJ” and Fury to crown an undisputed heavyweight champion.
Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has given Fury’s camp a deadline of the end of this week to salvage the fight. However, the prospect of it going ahead appears increasingly bleak.
Hearn is already looking into securing an alternative opponent for Joshua. That could be Oleksandr Usyk, the mandatory challenger for Joshua’s WBO belt.
