TYSON FURY still managed to deliver a verbal jab to rival Anthony Joshua while touring the UK.
The WBC heavyweight champion is riding high after successfully defending his title in an epic trilogy fight victory over Deontay Wilder.
However, any hopes of that setting up a bumper all-British unification showdown were already over after AJ suffered defeat to Oleksandr Usyk in September.
The Gypsy King, who has been invited to challenge WWE champion Big E at WrestleMania, was expecting to defend his title against mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in February or March until red tape with the WBC scuppered that.
Now there is talk that Joshua could step-aside from his rematch with Usyk to let his countryman face the Ukrainian instead to determine the undisputed champ.
However, while Fury waits to discover what is next in store for him, he is keeping himself busy by touring the UK.
And on Thursday in Manchester he quickly got his hometown crowd on-board as they joined in an X-rated sing-along about Joshua.
A clip of it was soon posted and going viral on social media in which Fury could be heard singing along with the crowd: “AJ is a p***y.”

Everyone knows how much the star loves to sing, and he also belted out one of his favourites with a rendition of American Pie.
Joshua recently hinted that he could move over and let his foe face Usyk first during an interview with iFL TV, saying: “That step aside thing, it may not go with what I stand for in terms of bringing me respect, fighting the best, but it may make sense for business.”
Fury’s promoter Frank Warren also said: added: “Obviously there’s conversations (about Joshua stepping aside) but that will have a limit of time where suddenly it’s either gonna happen or its not.
“I don’t think everybody’s gonna be waiting around for that. But I’m quite positive and feel positive that there is between everybody a will to get it done.”
