- Tyson Fury has promised to knock Anthony Joshua out in two rounds of their fight
- The Gypsy King sent the message after watching his countryman beat Pulev in the ninth round of their fight
- Fury said he will treat Joshua the way he treated Deontay Wilder earlier in the year
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has vowed to knock his countryman Anthony Joshua out in the third round.
The 32-year-old made the comments in a short clip posted on his official Twitter page after watching his fellow Briton beat Bulgarian opposition Kubrat Pulev at the O2 Arena.
This Joshua's second straight win after reclaiming his IBF, WBA, and WBO titles from Andy Ruiz Jr about a year ago in Saudi Arabia.
It was like a one-way fight as the 31-year-old dominated most part of the match before eventually finishing the Bulgarian off with a spectacular right-hand in the ninth round.
Joshua first threw a jab with his left hand before going all out with his strong hand which eventually put the game to rest and the boxer of Nigerian descent retain his belts.
After the fight, Fury sent a message to the two-time heavyweight champions, saying they are squaring up next, adding that the 31-year-old has no place to hide now.
The Gypsy King also said that he will make it quick by beating his countryman in the second to the third round of the fight so they can all go back home in time. He said on Twitter:
"Anthony Joshua, it’s a matter of time..... ⏰ ⏰ ⏰ I’ll sp'ank you as I did Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) 2/3 rounds.

Though the Watford born boxer just finished a fight, however, it is left to be seen what his response to Fury would be.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Anthony Joshua has successfully defended his WBA, WBO and IBF titles after defeating Kubrat Pulev by TKO in the 9th Round on Saturday night, December 12.
The 31-year-old Briton last fought in Saudi Arabia when he won his titles back from Andy Ruiz Jr. in December 2019.
On the night against Pulev, not much was seen in the first round as Anthony Joshua stood-off his challenger, wondering why he isn't all-guns blazing like he was in 2014 vs Klitschko.
