RANKED
Top ten pound-for-pound boxers in the world today – Where does Tyson Fury rank?
Fury previously said: Ive already been the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world when I beat Klitschko.
So, as far as Im concerned, Anthony Joshuas only got my leftovers.
I never lost those belts, I had to vacate them for mental health problems. Theyre my belts.
How can you claim to be a champion when you havent beat the champion?

Joshua has now hit back by questioning the depth of his rivals record.
AJ told Land Rover: The fight can happen when Tyson Fury gets past his third match with Deontay Wilder and when I get past my next match with Kubrat Pulev.
If Fury wants that fight to happen, he’ll make it happen.
Joshua will face Kubrat Pulev on June 20 at Tottenham Stadium
Were keen, we always like to put on big events and cater for the boxing community so thats something that well take really seriously.
He’s had two good fights in his career in my opinion, against Klitschko and Wilder and he’s managed to win them both so he’s on a high right now.
But he has to be careful what he wishes for because the young gunners are coming up and well definitely take that Tyson Fury challenge with both hands.
