Anthony Joshua Bizarrely Likes A Post Calling Him Out After Tyson Fury Fight

Anthony Joshua was the elephant in the room after Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's WBC heavyweight title match on Saturday night. Now the division's other champion is being called out on Twitter but he doesn't seem to mind.

It had previously seemed inevitable that Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder would meet in the ring at some point. Both were big punchers, both had plenty to say, both were undefeated and the pair held every title belt in the heavyweight division.

But AJ's camp and the people representing the Bronze Bomber weren't able to do a deal to get the fight on, each blaming the other in typically annoying fashion.

Wilder though was able to do a deal with Tyson Fury. The Gypsy King being only two fights into his comeback after nearly three years out.

Joshua wasn't even in LA for the fight which meant he wouldn't be able to storm the ring and call the winner out, it led to a lot of people criticising the 2012 Olympic champion for once more dodging his rivals.

One fan claimed the draw would have made Joshua happy:

Clearly the WBA champion saw the tweet but instead of answering it or denying the charge he weirdly decided just to like what his critic had said:

Weirdly, despite it being an obvious fight to make between AJ and whoever had won on Saturday, the undefeated Brit claimed he wouldn't even be watching the fight live, saying, "The fight is on too early in the morning for me, so I'll be sleeping. I enjoy watching the highlights. I'll watch it in the morning on social media.

"When I wake up, I like to see who got knocked out. It's a generation thing.

"We like highlights, so I don't watch the whole thing."

You've got to hope that Joshua does one day face both Wilder and Fury, for now the two men will concentrate on the rematch.
