- Anthony Joshua does not look disturbed with Tyson Fury going out of shape in his recent photo
- The WBC champion was spotted looking over-weight on the beach of Morecambe Bay
- AJ and the Gypsy King are yet to announce the date of their much-anticipated unification bout
Anthony Joshua has said that does not care about the current physique of his upcoming opponent Tyson Fury when ahead of their blockbuster bout, Give Me Sport.
The Gypsy King was spotted by promoter Eddie Hearn in the waters of Morecambe Bay without a shirt looking over-weight.
Though the date for the much anticipated is yet to be fixed but negotiations are said to be moving in a positive direction with the hopes that the deal can be struck in the coming months.
After seeing Fury's condition Hearn was quoted by Give Me Sport as he said to AJ:
“I think before he goes into any main camp he doesn’t look like AJ, ever.
“I said to AJ the other day, ‘Did you see Fury jumping in the sea? He looked like me!’
"The response from AJ was, ‘We’re gonna get the best Tyson Fury, so I don’t care if he’s carrying a bit of extra weight now, I’m training for the best ever Tyson Fury.'
“And, make no mistake, Fury will be in top shape for this fight."
Joshua scored a ninth-round knockout over Kubrat Pulev while Fury is yet to step into the squared circle since he defeated Deontay Wilder in the early months of 2020.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Anthony Joshua was not left out in the yearly Valentine's Day celebration as he was hanging with family and friends, cited on Facebook.
But the four-belt heavyweight champion who is known for his passion for rap music did something unusual.
The 31-year-old picked up the microphone and sang one of Joe's hit songs 'Good Girls' while he thrilled his guests.
