GLEEFUL Anthony Joshua claims Tyson Fury has turned a sad “nibble” into a mad quibble – as Britain’s world heavyweight kings clash over AJ’s offer to manage his big rival.
Three-belt champ Joshua says the Gypsy King “couldn’t handle” banter after Fury raged “I’m only interested in smashing your face in”.

AJ cheekily suggested Fury should join his Matchroom team as he was “a superstar in the making… with the right management”.
But Fury saw that as a genuine jab not a Joshing joke as he responded: “Anthony Joshua, has it ever dawned on you I’m not interested in being a superstar, or famous?
“I’m a fighting man & only interested in smashing your face in, u keep the stardom, I’ll stay real, #youbigdosser I’m coming for u superstar, tick tock tick tock.”
Now Joshua, 31, has accused the 32-year-old of taking the bait too easily.
He said: “It was just tongue in cheek, I was just playing with Tyson Fury.
“He nibbled! He couldn’t handle it!”
AJ and Fury appear set to fight for their four crowns next year – assuming Joshua beats IBF mandatory Kubrat Pulev, 39, in front of 1,000 fans at Wembley Arena this Saturday.

The Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia, can offer far greater riches.
So the two fighters would have to play their part in cutting costs to ensure one of Britain’s biggest ever fights can go ahead on these shores.
