World heavyweight IBF and WBA champion Joshua posted a string of tweets to Joseph Parker, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury as he looks to secure his next big-money bout.

Fury has not fought since his November 2015 victory over Wladimir Klitscho after which he lost his license, battled with mental health issues and seemed to pile on the pounds in his absence from the ring.

Since then he has become embroiled in bitter feuds with IBF, WBA and IBO world champion Anthony Joshua on social media amid fantasies of an all-British showdown.

Joshua struggled to overcome the lightly regarded Frenchman Carlos Takam in October, but he fancies his chances of beating Fury, who ballooned in weight while he was out of the ring.

In typical fashion the undefeated Fury was keen to big himself up in light of Joshua's criticisms.

Speaking of Joshua v Wilder, Hearn told Helder he spoke to Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon (Wilder's representatives) in NY last week and covered all the possible bases.

"To be honest with you me old mate, I don't need to get fit for somebody like you at all, I'll come to you and punch your face right in, even at 25 stone [350 pounds]", added Fury. I've seen what you're all about. The referee had to stop it in case you got caught or beat.

'P.S. I'll be haunting your nightmares forever Dr Klitschko and you will always know that you could never beat the fat Gypsy'. Useless. No gas, no stamina, too many weights.

Bruno has now offered his take on how Joshua would get on if he came up against Wilder and Josua. "You want to practise on a bit more speed and less power".

WBC heavyweight Wilder was next on Joshua's hitlist, with the Watford-born fighter posting a YouTube video of a lengthy interview during which he urged the American to set up a title fight between the two.
