Having watched AJ overcome Wladimir Klitchko at Wembley in front of 90,000 fans, Fury wants a piece of the action in an all-British mega-fight, and responded to Joshua calling him out in the ring.

The former world heavyweight champion told Sky Sports: ‘Styles do make fights but I am sure I can beat AJ with one arm tied behind my back ‘I don’t even need a warm-up if he wants this, I  have been out of the ring as long as Klitschko but the difference is, I am not 41, I am 28.

‘AJ did really well to come back but I am not 41 or getting old. He is just a pumped-up weightlifter but [Klitschko] couldn’t land one of those of those hooks on me, at all.

‘It is a total clash of styles, a total clash of personalities, the complete opposites. I would just like to congratulate AJ for getting through the nip-and-tuck, life-and-death situation, against an old man, so well done.

‘But let’s face it, I am the man, the number one in the division. ‘There can only ever be one heavyweight, especially in our part of the world, and it’s me. It definitely isn’t a pumped-up heavyweight, I can tell you that.’
