Anthony Joshua Fires Shot At Tyson Fury Ahead Of Potential Undisputed Fight
Unified heavyweight king Anthony Joshua has warned Tyson Fury to be careful as the "young gunners are coming."
Fury sensationally dethroned Deontay Wilder of the WBC heavyweight world title following his seventh round victory last month in Las Vegas.
Despite the American triggering the contracted rematch clause, an undisputed clash between Fury and Joshua has been mooted with promoters Eddie Hearn and Bob Arum reportedly holding talks for a mega-fight.
And ahead of a potential showdown, the WBA (super), IBF and WBO belt holder has aimed a dig at the WBC champion.
"He's had two good fights in his career in my opinion, Klitschko and Wilder, and he's managed to win them both so he's on a high right now," he said.
"But he has to be careful what he wishes for because the young gunners are coming up."

Joshua returns to action on June 20 when he defends his titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.
But Matchroom boss Hearn is eyeing a match with Fury and he's hit back at promoters who've claimed that he hasn't started talks.
"Of course, I f***ing have [spoken to Bob Arum]," he explained.
"Firstly, I've been negotiating the Pulev fight with him. How many times have I spoken to Bob Arum in the last three weeks? Half a dozen, a dozen.
"How many times have I spoken to Arum since the Fury fight? Four times.
"Of course, I've spoken to Bob Arum. Do you think Bob's not going to call me and talk about it?"
Fury and Wilder, meanwhile, are set to meet for a third time on July 18 in Las Vegas.
