Footage Of Tyson Fury FaceTiming Anthony Joshua Emerges Following Recent Staredown
ITV followed Fury in the build-up to his rematch with Deontay Wilder in February for a documentary titled 'Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King'.
Fury begins the conversation by saying: "What's happening AJ?"
Joshua responds: "Training, keeping my life simple. What's been happening? Everything good? Family good?"
Fury replies with: "I'm all good brother."
Joshua the turns his attention to the ring and asks: "When are we fighting? It sounds like 2021."
Fury then jokes: "When are we fighting? Behave yourself! I only called you up to say hello."
The pair looked set to go head-to-head later this year following Fury's victory over Wilder but the coronavirus pandemic has pushed it back a year.
Nevertheless, both men seem up for putting their belts on the line and engaged in a first staredown of sorts recently.

"You think that I'm going to double [it], oh and by the way, I don't even set the pay-per-view prices," he explained.
"You think Sky are going to double of Joshua - Ruiz for example, for Joshua - Fury. Do I think that'll go over £29.95, no I don't."
