AJ revealed that he read in boxing bible Boxing News that Fury was in London looking for sparring partners – and if anyone knocked him down they would get his Rolex watch.

Joshua told Sky Sports: “This was early on when I was an amateur and I didn’t know who Tyson was.

“I was reading in Boxing News he was going around London gyms asking if anyone knocks him out they get to keep his Rolex.

“Me and him had a straight war. We both have heart.

“I didn’t get to knock him out. He said afterwards ‘Watch out for this kid, he will be champion of the world one day’.

“And he got his prediction right.”

Meanwhile, AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn hopes to do a deal so Deontay Wilder walks away from his Fury rematch.

AJ is desperate for a ‘Battle of Britain’ with Mancunian Fury to unite the world titles in 2021.
