Tyson Fury might be on tour but he still has time to take shots against British heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua. 

The Gypsy King is currently touring the UK after retaining his heavyweight title against Deontay Wilder in their trilogy bout in October.

Hopes of a dream British heavyweight showdown with Joshua though collapsed, when the Brit lost his world titles to Oleksandr Usyk back in September.

During a show in his home city of Manchester, Fury got the partisan crowd involved in a sing-along aimed at Joshua.

In a clip posted on social media, Fury can be heard singing ‘AJ is a p****’ with the crowd joining along with him. 

Fury also sang a rendition of American Pie which he had belted out after his first victory over Wilder back in 2020.

It is not the first time Fury has mocked Joshua – who he was originally supposed to fight this year before talks broke down.

A deal was agreed for a mega-money British undisputed showdown in Saudi Arabia, but Fury was instead forced to face a third test against Wilder – with Joshua instead put up against mandatory challenger Usyk. 

Fury is expected to take on mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte with a ruling from the WBC expected shortly.

But Joshua could step aside from his upcoming rematch against Usyk and clear the path for Fury to challenge the Ukrainian for all four belts.

Joshua hinted as much in a recent interview with iFL TV, saying: ‘That step aside thing, it may not go with what I stand for in terms of bringing me respect, fighting the best, but it may make sense for business.’

And now Warren, Fury’s UK-based promoter, has claimed to be in discussions with team AJ about a step-aside deal.

‘Everybody wants to see him (Fury) and Usyk. That’s what we want to see,’ the Queensberry chief told iFL TV.

‘AJ, I see his interview last week, which was a little bit confusing. If you listen to what he’s saying, he’s basically saying “if I get the right money I’ll step aside”.

‘So that’s really where we’ve got to get to as a team, the Tyson Fury team. We’re all working hard to make that happen and it just may happen.

‘And if it does, then Tyson will meet him (Usyk) and the four belts will be on the line. And I hope that’s gonna be the case.

‘If it doesn’t for any reason, then we’ve got to move to Plan B, and Plan B will be to fight here in the UK in March against an opponent that Tyson feels comfortable with.’

He added: ‘Obviously there’s conversations (about Joshua stepping aside).

‘But that will have a limit of time where suddenly it’s either gonna happen or its not. I don’t think everybody’s gonna be waiting around for that.

‘But I’m quite positive and feel positive that there is between everybody a will to get it done.’
