Tyson Fury has reminded Anthony Joshua that he once held the heavyweight titles that AJ possesses and was never beaten for them, ahead of their unification bout this summer.
The two British behemoths finally meet on 14 August in Saudi Arabia with all the heavyweight world titles on the line.
Fury holds the WBC and Ring Magazine belts, and while Joshua has more straps in his possession, the Gypsy King was never beaten for the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles that he once held.
The unbeaten Brit relinquished those titles after winning them from Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, going on a two-and-a-half year hiatus from the sport.
Joshua went on to pick up all those straps, beating Charles Martin, Klitschko and Joseph Parker over the coming years, but Fury has reminded AJ that he feels they still belong to him.
‘Time to take back what I never lost,’ Fury tweeted. ‘Every belt there [sic] all mine chump!’
Fury added on Instagram: ‘WELCOME TO TYSON OF ARABIA! THE GYPSY KING SHOW CONTINUES 2021’
