Fury mocks Joshua's choice to fight Breazeale


Tyson Fury has mocked fellow heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua for opting to fight Dominic Breazeale in his first title defence.

Joshua became the IBF heavyweight champion with a sensational second-round knockout of Charles Martin at London's O2 Arena this month.

And while Fury, the WBA Super and WBO champion, prepares for a high-profile rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, Joshua announced his first defence will take place against lesser known American Breazeale on June 25th.

Fury and Joshua appear on a domestic collision course with the pair previously exchanging taunts on social media, and Fury used Twitter to condemn his fellow Briton's choice of opponent.

The 27-year-old originally posted: "Let's not give @anthonyfjoshua a hard time over his opponent, just remember he as only had 16 fights, &still Learning."

However, Fury later added: "BTW I WAS ONLY F****** WITH YOU GUYS, AJ IS FIGHTING A TOTAL BUMCITY. @EddieHearn @ it again joke, imagine if I was gonna fight brazile [Breazeale] lol."

Joshua has 16 knockout victories from as many professional fights, while Fury is unbeaten in 25 bouts - with 18 not lasting the distance.
