Joshua is reportedly enraged by the fact his planned fight with Fury has been scuppered by the Gypsy King’s contractual obligation to fight Deontay Wilder for a third time.
Tensions boiled over on social media earlier this week, with the fighters embroiled in a war of words before Fury pitched the idea of a bare-knuckle bout so the pair could fight as soon as possible.
WBA, IBF and WBO champion Joshua retweeted a damning post from another user, who questioned Fury’s claim that he sent a large chunk of his fight purse from his first clash with Wilder to charitable organisations.
The tweet read: ““20M the f****** homeless are still waiting on the 7M you promised them two years ago you sham.”
Fury has been spotted a number of times around his hometown of Morecambe handing cash to those less fortunate, as well as hosting daily Instagram workouts for fans during lockdown.
In the build up to his first bout with the Bronze Bomber, Fury promised to donate his hefty pay-cheque to build an addiction and housing centre in the UK, while also aiming to tackle the rising rate of homelessness in Los Angeles.
The two-time heavyweight champions of the world claimed: “I couldn’t care less about the money. I don’t have much use for it.
“I’m planning to give it all away to the poor and to build houses for the homeless.”
Fury doubled down on his charitable claims after the fight, explaining: “I did give away my last purse but I don’t do charity work for a pat on the back.”
