Tyson Fury has revealed that he previously had a heated argument with Anthony Joshua over the phone.
The rival heavyweight champions were close to confirming an undisputed fight this summer, only for Deontay Wilder to successfully win his arbitration case which forced Fury into a third meeting with him.
They subsequently exchanged insults in a heated feud on social media – their most public war of words to date.
Away from the spotlight though, it is known Fury and Joshua had been cordial in the past.
They sparred together as youngsters back in 2010, have spoken positively on FaceTime calls and bumped into one another in Marbella last year.
Now, Fury has said they have also argued in private.
