Sky Sports reports that Joshua had been billed to take on Fury in a unified bout he lost his his IBF, WBA and WBO belts to Oleksandr Usyk via unanimous decision at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month.

A rematch is already on the cards for Joshua vs Usyk, however Nigerian comedian Funny Bone has warned Joshua not to make an attempt to take on Fury if he reclaims his belts from Usyk.

In a clip shared by Instablog on Instagram, Funny Bone said:

“If anybody has AJ (Anthony Joshua) number I want to quickly talk to him as a brother to a friend. I’m sure you saw the fight last night.
“You saw what happened to our Edo brother Deontay ‘Odion’ Wilder. You saw what happened to him. You know you are our Ogun State brother too, from Ijebu.
“I want to beg you; don’t listen to Fury o… Don’t fight him o. As soon as you defeat Usyk to reclaim your belts, come to Nigeria we will host you.”

Fury not impressed with Wilder’s gesture

Meanwhile, after the trilogy, the Briton made attempts to embrace the American but he refused, insisting he will show no respect to the champion.

And while addressing the media, Fury labelled his opponent a 'sore loser' for his gesture after the bout.

Footage according to Daily Mail reveals that Fury approached Wilder but the American barely acknowledged his gesture.

Efe Ajagba loses to Frank Sanchez of Cuba earlier reported that Efe Ajagba was taught boxing lessons against Cuban heavyweight Frank Sanchez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The Nigerian heavyweight and the Cuban put their undefeated streak on the line but Sanchez got the better of Ajagba.

The fight was an undercard in the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder III and it did not really give what the fans were expecting as it became one-sided.
