AJ & Wilder I'm coming back for you pair my mission is seek & destroy the only thing on my mind is destruction whoever gets in my way will be dealt with accordingly.

And the self-styled Gypsy King has vowed to reclaim the belts that were stripped from him, firing a warning shot to the champion while out jogging.

He said: "Guess who's back, the one and only".

Fury then switched his attentions to Joshua, adding: "I'm coming back for the big stiff man". 6ft 9ins, 18-and-a-half stone.

He posted a picture of Ali and George Foreman in the ring in 1974 on Instagram and wrote: "This is what's to come!" I promise you, I promise the fans Anthony Joshua will give you the fights that you want, I promise you that.

New Zealand heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker has described world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua as "average" and "robotic". He steps up all the time but I don't think he looked that impressive.

'He's good - he's big, strong and learning, but I think he's just average, he's robotic.

Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua defended his IBF heavyweight titles and fought for the vacant WBA (Super) and IBO heavyweight titles against Carlos Takam on October 28, before huge fans at Cardiff Stadium, Wales.

But that does not seem to have concerned Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn who admitted this week Wilder is among three potential contenders.

And now he says his promoter has been onto the Gypsy King about setting up a mega-fight with the former world champ after he was given the green light to return to the ring. Joshua is the money man in the division, and all of the top heavyweight contenders will be flocking to him to get their biggest purse to fight him.

"I say we get this fight on like Donkey Kong", he says in the clip.
