Anthony Joshua fires warning to Tyson Fury ahead of £200m mega-fight

British-Nigerian boxer Anthony Joshua has stylishly warned Tyson Fury ahead of their much publicised heavyweight mega-fight slated for later this year.

Boxing fans across the globe are expecting a date for the tantalising clash to be fixed, but politics within the sport has threatened to prevent the bout.

The pair are billed to earn a minimum of £100million each in the first clash of a two-bout deal and now both camps are pushing for the fight to materialise.

And as negotiations over the deal continue, Joshua has hinted about what it takes to become an elite boxer.

He said via Daily Mail: “In this life, 99 per cent of the population are civilised people - the job I've chosen is for the uncivilised,' he told his YouTube channel.

“No matter what the tactics are, no matter how much you study, no matter how much you think you can beat me, I'm just there to win. That's the fighter's mentality - some people may not understand it.

“This is a sport of combat and war. We're not civilised people, we're warriors, and I love it."
