Tyson Fury has brutally branded British heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua a 'big useless dosser' for losing his three titles to Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua lost his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles after defeat to Usyk in September 2021 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
Usyk put on a boxing masterclass to defeat the Englishman, as he secured victory on points after a dominant 12 rounds in the ring.
And as Fury looks to spark a war of words again after hopes of a heavyweight showdown in the immediate future were dashed by AJ's defeat – the Gypsy King has taken a fresh swipe at his rival in a social media video.
Running on a treadmill whilst training, the Gypsy King shouts: "You know what I can't believe?
"That AJ has gone and given Ukraine all the heavyweight belts back after all my hard work in relieving them. You big useless dosser."
Fury’s claims come after he defeated Ukrainian superstar Wladamir Klitschko in 2015 to pick up the WBA (super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles.
The Gypsy King brutally went on: "You let a little man come up from middleweight and set about you and take all your belts.
"Now it is going to take a real British Lancaster Bomber like me to go and bring the belts back to Britain!
"You are useless dossers. Honestly bring them to me. I am the Gypsy King. Bring them to me and I will put them in their place."
Joshua will aim to regain the titles he lost last September when he takes on Usyk in a rematch in the upcoming months.

Whilst a date is yet to be set on the pair’s second bout, promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that both camps are aiming for April.
Recently discussing the plans for the fight, the promoter told iFL TV: "Honestly not much other than we have to get together and decide a date.
"April is realistic for that fight and [as for] where it’s going to be, we’ve had offers from around the world, I think the UK will stage that fight, but we have to sit down with Alex Krassyuk."
There had been initial claims that AJ could be set to step aside from his rematch in order to let Usyk and Fury fight it out.

However, Hearn admitted this is an unlikely scenario with Dillian Whyte named as the mandatory challenger for Fury’s WBC title.
Hearn added: "Obviously, there were a couple of discussions about step asides and those kinds of fights. So we’ll have to see.
"But that looks very unlikely now because obviously of the Dillian Whyte situation, which AJ is pleased about because he didn’t really want to have those conversations unless I presented them to him.
"So if that’s not the case, he moves forward with what he wants, which is the Oleksandr Usyk rematch."
