The First Staredown Between Tyson Fury And Anthony Joshua Happened On The Street
Fury and Joshua are set to meet in a blockbuster undisputed clash next year after agreeing terms to a two-fight deal.
And both fighters came face-to-face for the first time since agreeing to meet in a 'Battle of Britain' showdown.
The pair of heavyweight title holders bumped into each other in Spain and appeared to have a conversation.
Joshua, the unified champion, took to social media to post a picture of them in mid-conversation.
On Twitter, he wrote: "Sweeeeeeeeeeeet Caroline!! Ohhhh ohhh ohhhhh."

Fury, who holds the WBC title, responded on Instagram: "Good times never seem so good. 2021 it's going of," he wrote accompanied with the picture of the two heavyweight kings.
Both men are taking a break as they await for their next assignment, with Fury set to face Deontay Wilder for a third time in December.
Joshua, on the other hand, will defend his world titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev later this year.

Fury vs. Joshua will be a huge pay-per-event but promoter Eddie Hearn insists the fight won't cost £49.95.
"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."
The Matchroom promoter added: "But again, this isn't my decision. I don't think Sky are looking at this fight thinking, 'Oh yeah, that'll give us an excuse to put the price up.'
"Is it the biggest fight ever? Yes, biggest British fight ever, yes.
"But my relationship with the costumers and the fans has to be everything, because I want the longevity, I want the respect and I want your trust and I want to give you value.
"So I'm not here to come in like a cowboy and go £49.99, see you later, cheers, bye, with a sack of money.
"It's got to be right, it's got to represent the value of the product like everything has.
"Maybe Tyson Fury wants it to be £49.99, I don't think it should be anywhere near that kind of money and I don't believe Sky would either."
