The former unified heavyweight champion, who is still recognized as the lineal ruler, goaded Joshua as insults were traded in public view.
Responded to a ‘fat a**’ jibe by Joshua, Fury had some choice words for Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn.
“I might be fat, but you’re a paper champion and paper chinned,” said Fury. (You’re just a) weightlifting rudeboy (and) wannabe badman! Know your place chump or I’ll come back and KO you!”
Posting a picture of his numerous titles, Fury added: “When you do this come back and talk BS, soppy boll****. You can’t even carry my jock strap, Flex – you stay humble w*****!
“You shouldn’t throw stones when you live in a glass house. Deal with Bitchko (Wladimir Klitschko) first then I’ll give you a boxing lesson, I promise. Good luck chump!
“(But) After grandad Bitchko deals with Flex, the old Gypsy King will have to pick up all the pieces again. I’m the greatest ever of all time!”
After grandad ???? bitchko deals with flex ???? the old gypsy king ???? will have to pick up all the pieces again, I'm the greatest ever, Alltime

Fury continued: “I hear you’re getting battered by big Joy Joyce (2016 Olympic bronze medallist). Joker can’t deal with a amateur boxer never mind the GOAT (Greatest of all Time).
“I’m that confident I can smash Joshua when we fight (that) I’ll do the winner takes all. Eddie Hearn is a bitch as well.
“I’m a bad man. Plastic bad man gets slapped any time or place – truth,” he added.
A win for Joshua could indeed be the catalyst for a massive all-UK heavyweight battle at some point in the future, although Fury has a long road back to fitness and the likes of Tony Bellew, Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker may looking to snag a shot at ‘AJ’ before the Ring Mazagine ruler.
