TYSON FURY has blasted back at Anthony Joshua for calling him “boring” – by saying he is “more Nigerian”.
The two continue to angle for a “Battle of Britain” heavyweight domestic clash – but it’s clearly only at the “trash-talking” stage at the minute.
Tyson Fury took to his Instagram page to slam Anthony Joshua, saying he is ‘more Nigerian’ than him
Anthony Joshua is apparently keen for a Battle of Britain clash with Tyson Fury
Joshua climbed off the canvas in April to record a stunning 11th round stoppage victory against Wladimir Klitschko to add the WBA and IBO titles to his IBF strap.
But Fury has hit back, in somewhat strange circumstances.
Sharing a video on Instagram, he captioned it: “I’m more Nigerian than you! I’ll fly the flag for Nigeria when we fight.
“Gypsy man represents the world.”
In the video which the self-titled “gypsy king” shared on Instagram, he said: “I see AJ is talking again, saying my fight was boring.
“Better to win and be boring than to get dropped all over the floor and scraping a win.
“I never got punched, you got carried off the canvas nearly.
“But winning is winning, whether you win by an inch or a mile.
“Still winning, and I still won.

The self-titled gypsy king spoke as if Anthony Joshua was ‘lucky’ to record a stunning stoppage against Klitschko
“Let’s get it on then. I don’t need no warm-up fights.
“When this political rubbish stops against me, keeping me out of the ring a ploy, to give you a bit of a better chance of beating me.
“And we will get it on October or November, no warm-up fights needed for a bum like you, a useless dosser that you are.
“Let’s see if you can beat me when these bums give me my licence back.”
