Former unified world champion Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) has come out firing in the direction of WBA, IBF, IBO champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs).
Fury got fired up after reading reports, where promoter Eddie Hearn had stated that Joshua could very well retire in the aftermath of a victory over WBC champion Deontay Wilder.
Joshua is back in the ring next Saturday night, when he faces WBO world champion Joseph Parker in a unification showdown from Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
Fury has been out of the ring since stunning Wladimir Klitschko for the WBO, IBO, WBA, IBF world titles in November of 2015.
A serious fight with depression, and substance abuse issues, caused Fury to lose his license to box.
But the boxer has now reclaimed his license and continues to train for a planned ring return in the coming months.
News has broken that a promotional deal has been finalized with Frank Warren, with a planned return in June in Manchester, but Fury says that arrangement has yet to be finalized.
Fury believes that once he gets his career back in order, he would dominate Joshua in the ring.
"Hi this is Tyson Fury, just to clear up a few things from the papers. I've signed nothing with nobody as of yet. I'm still a free agent ATM (at the moment)," Fury said.
"I just saw reports that Eddie Hearn saying Joshua will retire before he fights me and if he does, I told y'all he was a sh*thouse and he's afraid of the Gypsy King. Look, I got myself back in shape... and now he wants to retire all of a sudden.
"Typical, typical, typical moves, stay active, get a couple of fights in because I'm going to take you to school, play with you. It's going to be unbelievable, an easy fight. (I'll) jab his head right off, use his head like a springboard."
