Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury has been simulated in EA Sports' UFC 4 - with Joshua winning via a brutal knockout.

The two boxing heavyweights are set to meet in the ring next year with all their belts on the line.

While it looks like we won't be seeing that until 2021, MMAGAME decided to pit the duo face to face inside the octagon for an early taster.

Fury has trained with UFC star Darren Till in the past and even teased a move to MMA late last year.

However, Joshua manages to get one over on the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' with a convincing third round victory.

Fury rocks his opponent halfway through the first round but 'AJ' manages to regain control with a stiff uppercut.

He also looks to have stronger ground skills than Fury and inflicts massive damage in the second.

It's the ground and pound that eventually gives Joshua the knockout victory and crown of cross-promotional winner.

Both men are pre-order bonuses with the latest title.

Meanwhile, a staredown between the pair in Marbella last month has built even more hype for their eventual fight.

Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn revealed what went down on the streets and he stressed it was a friendly exchange.

"It was amazing, people think it was a set up," Hearn explained to iFL TV per Metro.

"AJ said he was walking down the road and Fury drove up and opened the window and was like, 'Alright?'

"I think he said to AJ, 'Make sure you beat Kubrat Pulev'. And AJ said, 'Make sure you beat Deontay Wilder'.

"And they both said, 'I will, and I'll see you next year'."

Joshua has already begun mind games with the 32-year-old and recently questioned his credentials as WBC heavyweight champion.

Speaking with Sky Sports, the IBF, WBO and WBA (Super) champion said: "If the sport is lacking so much talent, it just shows all you need is feints and a bit of movement to be classed as one of the all-time greats of this generation, right?

"That's why I believe a little bit of hard work, motivation and studying and you can overcome that hurdle that maybe is Tyson Fury. That's what I'm wondering, what is it that people see in Tyson Fury that is so intimidating or fearful or that he can't be touched at the top level?

"His first challenge was Wladimir Klitschko and he overcame that. That took him maybe eight years where he turned professional, built up his experience and confidence and finally fought Wladimir Klitshcko, then he had some years out and fought Deontay Wilder."

The 30-year-old added: "I just think he hasn't been in the deep end enough to show me that he can swim there for a long time in my opinion.

"You have to continuously prove to me that you belong there, you don't just come there once or twice you have got to continuously fight against championship fighters and that's how you gain my respect."
