AJ was captured in the gym chatting to Shields and working out with a mask on.

Shields told Thaiboxingvoice via Daily Mail:

“They reached out to me and they asked if I would be interested in taking a look at AJ and that he wanted to come down to Texas and see if things would work out between him and I.
‘I said, "No problem, I would love to see if we had a connection together".'

The old post is circulating on the internet yet again as AJ faced backlash from fans, as well as Fury, after he appeared to have delayed his unification bout with then WBC champion Deontay Wilder or WBO champion Joseph Parker.

The Gypsy King blasted fellow Briton claiming he had struggled to fight Carlos Takam which he won via 10th-round TKO to retain his heavyweight titles, and Joshua clearly didn’t take his comments.

Tyson Fury claims Joe Joyce is the best out there

Legit.ng earlier reported that reigning WBC champion Tyson Fury has ignored Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua and others after claiming that Joe Joyce is the 'best one out there'.

The Gypsy King defended his title successfully after knocking out Deontay Wilder for the second time on a row earlier this month.

Both heavyweights endured a long encounter but it was the Briton who emerged victorious in the end while he took home his belt.
