Tyson Fury mocks Anthony Joshua following shock Andy Ruiz Jr defeat - 'I'd never show my face in public ever again'

After firstly offering kind words, Tyson Fury has taken aim at fellow Brit Anthony Joshua following his shock heavyweight pounding by Andy Ruiz Jr on Sunday.

Ruiz stunned the sporting world by defeating Joshua via seventh round TKO at Madison Square Garden in New York, to claim the WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF heavyweight titles.

Joshua and Fury have had a testy relationship over the years, but in the wake of Sunday's defeat, the Gypsy King kept wise counsel and backed Joshua to bounce back.

Not anymore.

In an interview with ESPN Radio, Fury took aim.

The controversial 'Gypsy King' apologised to Wilder after his unification fight with IBF, WBA and WBO champ Anthony Joshua fell through.

"Can you imagine? You're built like an Adonis, you're six foot six [inches], you're ripped, carved in stone, and a little fat guy who has eaten every Snickers and Mars bar in the whole of California comes in there and bladders you all over? What a disgrace."

"If that was me, I'd never show my face in public ever again."

Fury's next fight is against German Tom Schwarz on June 16, as he continues to battle back to the top of the division after being stripped of his world title three years ago.
