Fury continues to taunt Joshua

According to the Sun, a source close to the Fury camp said Joshua is already running scared and the silence on his part is defeaning. The source further adds that Fury has been on the frontlines of this potential fight which means he has the upper hand on Joshua.

So far AJ has allowed his management team to do all the talking. In contrast, Tyson has been front and centre pushing for this contest and taking the fight directly to Joshua. Tyson thinks this says it all and that he already has the upper hand and that he has AJ on the run.

Fury announced that he was retiring after stopping Dillian Whyte in six rounds back in April but reversed his decision.

Meanwhile, Joshua has struggled in the last few fights, losing three of the last five including last month's bout with Oleksandr Usyk. 34-year-old Fury told Joshua that the 60/40 deal is good.

This is it AJ, don't get scared now. I have given you an unbelievable deal and an unbelievable opportunity, so it's showtime. Take the fight.

There's is still a way to go if the fight is to happen and if it does December 3 will be the preferred date and the Cardiff's Principality Stadium in Wales has been suggested as a possible host.

Fury's sustained attacks on Joshua

Sports Brief earlier reported on a boxing expert's strong warning to Joshua, cautioning him not to fight Fury.

The expert said that the WBC heavyweight champion is only mocking Joshua and taking up the fight would not look good.

Joshua will want to bounce back after a string of poor showings.
