ANTHONY JOSHUA has called his great rival Tyson Fury – and revealed they were fighting over a brand new Rolex watch.
The former British World Heavyweight Champion was just an amateur when he first fought the Gypsy King.
said Joshua Sky Sports: “It was early on when I was an amateur and didn’t know who Tyson was.
“I read on Boxing News that he was going around London gyms asking if someone would knock him out and let him keep his Rolex.
“Me and he had a direct war. We both have hearts.
“I couldn’t knock him out. He said afterwards: ‘Take care of this boy, he’s going to be world champion one day’.
“And he got his prediction right.”
All talks of a possible AJ vs Tyson Fury fight have been put on hold after Joshua was beaten by Oleksandr Usyk.
The Ukrainian will face Joshua in a heavyweight rematch this summer.
While Fury takes on Dillian Whyte on April 23.
