    The Watford native was comprehensively outpointed by Usyk, 34, in September as he was outclassed at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
    Fellow Brit heavyweight Derek Chisora told talkSPORT he expects Joshua to avenge his defeat.
    Del Boy even backed Joshua to beat Fury should the pair ever come to blows, as he heaped praise on his punching power.
    Asked who comes out on top, Chisora said: “I’ll go with AJ. AJ’s power punch is unbelievable.
    “If AJ fights Fury, he has to go on him straight away, blast him out. He can’t box him. If he boxes with him, he loses. If you give Fury time on the ball then you’re in trouble.”
    The Gypsy King was quick to fire back, as he declared that if Deontay Wilder or Wladimir Klitschko couldn’t stop him, then Joshua has no chance.

    Taking to social media, he remarked: “This is a message to Derek Chisora, I’ve just seen that you said you think AJ would blast me out. Never in a million years.
    “If the biggest puncher in history couldn’t blast me out and Wladimr Klitschko couldn’t blast me out, a big old body builder can’t blast me out my friend.
    “So Del, he ain’t got the bottle to fight Usyk again. Usyk will smash him next time, properly.
    “Never mind beat him on points, he’ll knock him out. But listen, it only takes one man like me.
    “There’s only ever been one man on these shores, and he’s called the Gypsy King, AKA Tyson Fury.”
    WBC king Fury is targeting a return to the ring on March 26 following his epic win over Wilder in their trilogy encounter.
    The WBC recently ordered Fury to defend his heavyweight title against mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte.

    But they later confirmed the percentage of any purse split would be 80 per cent in the champion’s favour.
    Whyte has since protested against the decision and is appealing it, pushing back the dates of the purse bids.
    Fury’s US-based promoter Bob Arum has urged Whyte to ‘quit screwing around’ and agree a fight deal with the Manchester United fan. More

    Jake Paul will ‘run a mile’ from Mairis Breidis says promoter after world champ got tattoo bizarre of YouTuber

    JAKE PAUL would ‘run a mile’ from Mairis Breidis – even though the champions boxer called him out with a tattoo!That’s the verdict of Breidis’ promoter Kalle Sauerland, who insists he could make a bout between the world cruiserweight champ and unbeaten YouTuber Paul.

    Sauerland reckons Paul would be scared off once he saw highlights of the Latvian’s chilling knockouts.
    But in an effort to land a huge pay-day with the social media star, Breidis has had ‘JAKE’S BAD KARMA’ inked onto his leg.
    Sauerland was shocked by the tattoo and told talkSPORT Boxing. “He sent it to me, the day before it went out, and I didn’t know what to say!
    “I mean, he is a very jokey character and you mustn’t misunderstand him – he’s preparing now for his mandatory defence now, which he has to do.
    “It will be [Jay] Opetaia, again a very tough contender, he has earned the right to fight him. He is a three-time world champion.
    “So people out there saying he is after Jake Paul… yeah right! 
    “He is a three-time world champion who won the World Boxing Super Series to unify the belts. You can forget that part, of course he looks at it as a commercial opportunity!”
    Sauerland scoffed at the idea of Paul agreeing to take on the IBF and Ring Magazine’s 200lb king.

    He does not have an opponent yet, with WBC mandatory Dillian Whyte seemingly not ready to accept a 20 per cent share of the purse.
    Along with Fury and Williams was fellow heavyweight Joseph Parker, who himself is waiting for a title shot.
    Parker defeated Derek Chisora for a second time in their rematch, and is the former WBO belt-holder.
    Williams, who played 58 times for the New Zealand rugby union side between 2010 and 2019, is now a pro boxer.
    He has fought eight times, winning all of them with three knockouts.
    The 36-year-old is back in the ring on March 23 when he fights Barry Hall in Sydney.

    Tyson Fury pokes fun of Anthony Joshua by comparing his ‘14 pints of Fosters’ diet to Brit rival’s ultra-healthy habits

    TYSON FURY poked fun at Anthony Joshua by comparing his ’14 pints of Fosters’ diet to his rival’s ultra-healthy habits. The Gypsy King took to social media by sharing a picture of AJ looking ripped alongside himself ballooned with a big belly.

    Fury got up to a whopping 28st during his time away from boxingCredit: Refer to Caption
    Under his own image, he wrote on Instagram: “I remember one night I had 14 pints of Fosters and then sparred three top-ten heavyweights and battered them all.”
    And below AJ, the WBC heavyweight king added: “My breakfast consists of yams, eggs and dates.
    “Followed by a big bowl of porridge, a protein shake, a glass of orange juice and a glass of honey, lemon and ginger.”
    Fury, 33, famously piled on the pounds to a maximum of 28st during his time away from boxing before making a stunning comeback.
    And after his back-to-back wins over Deontay Wilder, taking his pro record to 31-0-1, the Morecambe fighter is a world champ.
    He looks set to return to the ring early in 2022, likely to face Dillian Whyte.

    Joshua, 32, had his own sensational body transformation.
    The Watford hero may be shredded these days and able to grate cheese on his abs of steel.
    But snaps of a 12-year-old AJ during his time at a Nigerian boarding school showed just how skinny he was before he began his sporting journey.
    Joshua is desperate to get his career back on track in the coming months.
    His Tottenham battering at the hands of Oleksandr Usyk in September saw the Ukrainian steal his WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight belts.
    And he will be hoping a new trainer could help him wrestle the titles back after reportedly parting company with Rob McCracken.

    Fury wants to fight again before April but Arum says it’s not the end of the world if he doesn’t.
    Dillian Whyte has been mooted as the Gypsy King’s most likely next opponent.
    But Andy Ruiz Jr and Robert Helenius have also been mentioned if negotiations with the BodySnatcher continue to stall.
    And Arum, 90, told Sky: “That is up to Tyson. We have discussed other opponents.
    “And if the fight is a week or two later [than March 26], it’s not the end of the world.”
    Arum also told Whyte to ‘quite screwing around’ and agree a fight deal with Fury.

    The WBC recently ordered Fury to defend his heavyweight title against mandatory challenger Whyte.
    But they later confirmed the percentage of any purse split would be 80 per cent in the champion’s favour.
    Fuming Whyte has since protested against the decision and is appealing it, pushing back the dates of the purse bids.
    But American Hall of Famer Arum and promoter Frank Warren are ready to offer the British contender a mega-money fee and put the row to bed.
    Arum added: “If he wants the fight and stops messing around, he can get a good payday and prove that he is of a world-class calibre by taking on Fury.
    “We’d like to do that fight. It’s a good fight for the UK.
    “Whyte should sit down with myself and Frank Warren and work out a deal for a guarantee, and we’ll get this show on the road.
    “Come to the table and let’s see if we can carve out a real deal. Let’s quit screwing around.

    “I don’t know Dillian but I would think he wants the fight. I don’t know his psyche.
    “Let’s let Oleksandr Usyk fight Anthony Joshua, which is contracted, and let’s get Fury to fight Whyte.”
    WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman confirmed the splits were determined following a review of Fury and Whyte’s recent paydays.

    Jake Paul sent UFC star Conor McGregor a message on Instagram urging him to ‘take the fight pussy’ after $50m offer

    JAKE PAUL continued his relentless pursuit of a boxing match with Conor McGregor by direct messaging the UFC superstar on Instagram.The YouTuber revealed his eagerness to take on McGregor a few days after scoring a sensational second-round KO victory over Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson’s exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr late last year.
    Jake Paul slid into Conor McGregor’s direct messages on Instagram
    Jake Paul launched a foul-mouthed tirade at Conor McGregor earlier this week
    And last July, the 24-year-old doubled down on his desire to box McGregor in a foul-mouthed tirade on Instagram, in which he claimed his team have sent the UFC’s poster boy a whopping £37million ($50million) offer.
    McGregor refrained from responding to the x-rated call-out, in which Paul made derogatory comments about the Irishman’s fiancee, Dee Devlin.
    And in another attempt to get the former two-division UFC champion’s attention Paul – whose older brother Logan stepped in the ring with Floyd Mayweather – sent a short and sweet direct message to The Notorious on Instagram.
    Paul’s message read: “Take the fight pussy.”

    After sharing his DM to McGregor, Paul launched a blistering rant at UFC president Dana White, who revealed he was willing to let women’s bantamweight and featherweight queen Amanda Nunes fight the former Disney star.
    He said: “Alright, Dana, let me try to understand your logic here: So you’re saying you don’t want me to fight Conor McGregor because he’s one of the greatest fighters in the world and I’m just like a YouTuber of whatever.
    “But then, in a statement today, you say: ‘Oh, I’m thinking about just having Amanda Nunes knock him out.’ But she’s also one of the greatest.
    “Dana, you seem to have this thing where you sort of hate on videogamers or YouTubers and influencers and us boxing and all this stuff.
    “But then, you spend half your time hanging out with the Nelk Boys. And I know why. It’s because they have hella influence over the male audience and you know that’s gonna promote the UFC.
    “And right now, baby, there’s nobody in this f***ing world who is promoting the UFC as much as me.
    Tens of millions of views, number one search result on Google when you type in Conor McGregor, when you type in UFC, when you type in Dana White. So you’re not making sense here.
    “Dana, I know the world doesn’t really know this because the UFC is this huge company. But we all know it’s not doing that well.
    Jake Paul knocked out Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson’s exhibition bout with Roy Jones JrCredit: AP:Associated Press
    “Anyone who is involved in WME and all the public stocks and everything that went south there, we know the company is not doing well. And I’m the biggest money fight you can do unless Khabib comes out of retirement.
    “So if you want the UFC to make the most amount of money, you better start to wake the f**k up and realise that Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is going to happen at some point.”
    Paul’s rant at White came shortly after he ambushed McGregor’s team-mate Dillon Danis and pelted him with water balloons.
    Paul may very well be a combat sports novice, but he’s well and truly at the centre of the boxing and MMA worlds at this moment in time.

    Anthony Joshua only watched back FOUR ROUNDS of Oleksandr Usyk defeat because ‘he didn’t like the way he boxed’

    ANTHONY JOSHUA only watched back FOUR ROUNDS of his loss to Oleksandr Usyk – because ‘he didn’t like the way he boxed’. AJ was stunned over 12 rounds in September, falling victim to a masterclass by Usyk.
    Anthony Joshua was beaten by Oleksandr UsykCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun
    And it was so heartbreaking the British superstar could not even bring himself to watch the fight back in its entirety.
    Derek Chisora, 38 who lost on points to Usyk himself, said on talkSPORT: “I think AJ wins that second time round.
    “When I spoke to him I asked him if he watched the fight back, he said he only watched four rounds because he didn’t like the way he boxed.
    “I asked him what he was going to do [in the rematch], he said: ‘You’ll see.’”
    Ahead of his contracted rematch with Usyk, 34, Joshua, 32, has contemplated switching his training team.
    Following the loss, AJ spent time in America visiting several gyms and coaches, with rumours he could split from head cornerman Rob McCracken.

    McCracken has guided AJ to gold in the 2012 London Olympics and two unified heavyweight titles in the professional ranks.
    It is yet to be revealed whether Joshua will replace the Team GB boxing chief or add a trainer to work alongside him.
    But an announcement will be imminent when he returns to full training camp in preparation for his rematch with Usyk.
    Promoter Eddie Hearn told iFL TV: “He’s been working hard.
    “Obviously, his trip to America and subsequently training in the UK with various people… trainers flying in.
    When I spoke to him I asked him if he watched the fight back, he said he only watched four rounds because he didn’t like the way he boxed.Derek Chisora on Anthony Joshua’s loss to Oleksandr Usyk
    “I think AJ will make an announcement when camp starts, which I guess will be end of January, early February.
    “But he’s worked hard to get it right. A lot of people have said, ‘Do you think it’s risky to bring in a new trainer?’
    “I flip that and say, ‘do you think it’s risky to not be comfortable with your set-up or your surroundings?’
    “He’s put the work in to make sure he gets it right.
    “I guess there’ll be an announcement regarding his training team when camp gets underway.”

    ‘He’s good bro’ – Logan Paul warns YouTuber Money Kicks he could ‘get knocked the f*** out’ by Floyd Mayweather

    It will be the American’s third exhibition bout since retirement, with the first a one round demolition over featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23.
    But in June, he returned against Paul, who weighed TWO STONE more, and was taken the distance.
    Money Kicks – real name Rashed Belhasa – is a friend of the fellow YouTuber and was given the lowdown on Mayweather’s style during a FaceTime call.
    Paul said: “I love you but you’re not going to beat Floyd – he’s good bro.
    “So here are the options; you get to say you fought Floyd Mayweather but you’re going to get ‘knocked the f*** out’.
    “If you’re going to do it [win], you have to keep it on the down low, and I’m not going to lie, it would have to be in round one.
    “What he did with that Japanese boxer, he’s probably trying to do that with you.”

    Mayweather boasted both before and after facing Paul that he made $100million (£72m) for the spectacle he dubbed ‘a legalised bank robbery’.
    But Paul has since alleged that he has not been fully paid by the legendary boxing champion.
    And he warned Belhasa – son of billionaire construction mogul Saif Ahmed Belhasa – about potentially not receiving his fight purse.
    Paul said: “Here’s a couple of things you’ve got to know. You’ll be doing this strictly for the exposure.
    “He’s got a bit of an issue with paying people, I’m still chasing money from him which sucks.”
