Anthony Joshua tells Tyson Fury to ‘shut the f*** up’ but rejects war of words with rival

Anthony Joshua has told Tyson Fury to “shut the f*** up” and has vowed not to engage in a war of words with the Gypsy King. A high-profile bout with Fury is one of Joshua’s options after his victorious return to the ring.

Joshua defeated Jermaine Franklin on points on Saturday night. After the fight, the 33-year-old said he wanted Fury, Deontay Wilder or Dillian Whyte in his next battle.

Fury has often called out Joshua and wanted to strike a deal for a fight in December last year. However, they failed to agree terms and the Mancunian fought and beat Derek Chisora instead.

But Joshua says he will not engage in a drawn-out verbal exchange with Fury and has told the WBC heavyweight champion to “shut the f*** up”. Instead, he simply wants the pair to arrange fight terms.

Speaking after beating Franklin, Watford-born Joshua said of Fury: “I’ll be real, I’ll be real. I respect the man. He’s achieved a lot. I just feel I don’t need to trash talk, verbally trash talk someone to make myself feel better. That is just me personally.

“I am not a b****. I don’t want to be like, ‘he said this, he said that’. Save all that s***. If we’ll f***ing fight, let’s go. Other than that shut the f*** up and that’s just how I feel because I got to save my energy for the fight.
