Anthony Joshua has branded Tyson Fury a "fraud" and says he has lied to boxing fans over the supposed collapse of their undisputed clash.

It appears the blockbuster heavyweight tilt between Joshua and Fury is off the table following the court ruling involving Deontay Wilder.

'The Bronze Bomber' won his arbitration case for a trilogy bout, throwing Joshua vs. Fury into serious doubt.

As a result, Fury and Wilder must face each other by September 15, 2021.

If the fight with Fury doesn't happen, 'AJ' will likely defend his belts against WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk.

Though he's angry at the fact he's not facing the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' - launching a fierce attack on Twitter.

He tweeted: "@Tyson_Fury the world now sees you for the fraud you are.

"You've let boxing down! You lied to the fans and led them on.

"Used my name for clout not a fight.

"Bring me any championship fighter who can handle their business correctly."

Joshua also poked fun at Fury's physique while mocking reports claiming Wilder wants £20,000,000 to step aside.

In another social media post, he wrote: "I'm thinking about starting a go fund me page to raise money for Wilder's step aside payment. £20,000,000.

"So I can smoke that fat guy with skinny legs from Manchester.

"These heavyweights need a podcast or something cas they do more talking than fighting."

Promoter Eddie Hearn has also had his say on the situation, saying the matter is now out of their hands.

"It was a strange decision by the arbitrator, to say the least," he told Matchroom Boxing.

"But that is [Fury's team's] business, their responsibility. We have to see now where they go with it.

"Bob Arum was in complete and utter shock. I have never heard him so speechless. He has been bullish throughout this process; 'This wouldn't be a problem, this wouldn't stand in the way of a Joshua vs Fury fight.'

"That is frustrating because we have worked tirelessly to get this over the line. I hope it does [happened], because like I said, we've grafted away for four or five months to make this happen.

"We've got a great deal in place for both fighters, for a legacy fight, for a huge amount of money, which is what both guys wanted.

"So, I hope. But hopeful? I don't know, as I said, everything we were told from the get-go was that this arbitration issue wouldn't be a problem, obviously it is a problem.

"We have to think on our feet, to act accordingly. We still hope the fight can go ahead but, really, that's completely out of our hands."
