Tyson Fury has invited heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua to join him on Instagram for a live workout during the coronavirus lockdown. Fury and Joshua are being tipped to meet for a huge undisputed world heavyweight title showdown in the future.
And although they’re not likely to meet soon because of the lockdown restrictions in the UK.
Fury wants to compete with Joshua on social media.
The Gypsy King has been entertaining fans over the last three weeks with his home workouts.

“Not be consumed with our ego. Nobody was more consumed with their ego than me, we always look for excuses when we lose.
“You have to accept the loss and use it as an education.
