And they came face-to-face in sunny Marbella on Saturday, with Fury jetting out after his son Prince Tyson Fury II’s dinosaur-themed fourth birthday party.

With both Fury, 31, and AJ, 30, currently on holiday in the south of Spain, it was always possible they’d bump into each other.

And they did just that, as Fury rolled down the window of his Land Rover – having bought a retro MINI Cooper just a week ago – for a chat.

Joshua – wearing a facemask – shared the incredible picture on his Instagram.

He captioned the post: “Sweeeeeeeeeeeet Caroline!! Ohhhh ohhh ohhhhh.”

It was revealed last month that Fury and Joshua have agreed a two-fight deal in 2021 providing they both emerge victorious in their next bouts.

But first, Fury is set to defend his WBC belt against Deontay Wilder on December 19 in Las Vegas.

And Joshua must get past Kubrat Pulev with his WBA, WBO and IBF belts on the line.

Should both win, Fury and Joshua will take each other knowing it will be a winner-takes-all affair – with the chance to become undisputed world heavyweight champion on the line.

And, on Friday, boxing legend Bernard Hopkins said he believes Joshua will KO Fury when they meet.

How Fury and Joshua stack up ahead of their 2021 fight

Hopkins said: “Joshua vs Fury is a fight that both guys could win or lose.

“I like Joshua to be tested, to get his feelings hurt early – that might be a knock-down but he will get up.

“Because of the lesson that he learned being, not unprepared, but overconfident he paid a big price. He redeemed himself.

“Now that is in his memory – what not to do ever again – Joshua beats Fury by knockout late.

“It will be an interesting, exciting five or six rounds at the beginning.

“Then Joshua’s athleticism, boxing IQ and experience would overwhelm Fury.

“Joshua would come out of a dust-storm based on his experience.

“At this point he has to make a really serious statement based on [the Andy Ruiz Jr loss]. Redemption.

“This fight is Joshua’s stamp of approval of being great. He’s not there yet. He is in legacy building mode.”
