Anthony Joshua Tyson Fury in Marbella chance meeting


There is time for everything, and in the boxing arena time to throw the punches and time to simply say hello and how do you do?

That was the case as Nigeria born British boxer Anthony Joshua bumped into Tyson Fury while holidaying in Marbella.

The Gyspy king  was in his car while his compatriot was standing on the pavement wearing a face mask and holding a bag.

And the pair were mid-conversation as the summer sun blazed down on them.

The image was soon shared on Twitter, where it earned thousands of likes within minutes of posting.

Fury later shared a snap with wife Paris on date night at a restaurant just outside of Marbella.

The pair are working on a unifying heavyweight belt fight, with the Gypsy King holding the WBC belt as AJ holds the rest.

But the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO champion has been enjoying the summer weather recently, hitting the beaches in Marbella.

“Hello there, I’ve just got off the phone with Daniel Kinahan. He’s just informed me that the biggest fight in British boxing history has just been agreed,” he said on social media

“Get up there my boy! Big shout out Dan, he got this done, literally over the line. A two-fight deal, Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua next year.
