Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have been told to ‘stop bull****ing” and fight each other by legendary boxer Mike Tyson, who said both fighters stand to make an incredible amount of money from the contest.
Joshua and Fury are the two top heavyweights in the world and hold all the title belts.
AJ won back the WBA, WBO and IBF titles from Andy Ruiz Jr in December in Saudi Arabia.
And Fury beat Deontay Wilder in emphatic fashion to win the WBC strap in February.

Fury and Joshua are now on a collision course to clash with all the belts on the line in a first ever British undisputed heavyweight world title fight.
There are, however, a few obstacles in the way, namely Joshua’s IBF mandatory fight with Pulev and Fury’s trilogy rematch with Wilder.
Boxing politics, purse splits and promoter squabbles may also stand in the way of the fight happening.

But Tyson has pleaded with both of them to get on with it and fight each other, and they’ll make a lot of money doing it, regardless.
“They’re all exciting fighters, they’re all going to make a great deal of money but they just need to fight each other,” he said.
“Stop bull****ing and just fight each other.
“Fight each other a couple of times and when that stuff is over you guys can say, ‘Hey, listen, we did it our way’.”
Tyson also spoke about his comeback fight with Roy Jones Jr in November, which will take place under exhibition rules in California.
“I believe this is just going to be the beginning, and whatever happens, happens in life,” he said.
“I’m just interested in fighting for the title of giving.
“It feels soul-cleaning for some reason. Doing it for myself doesn’t do it for me no more.”
Tyson’s clash with Jones Jr will take place on U.S. streaming app Triller and available to watch on pay-per-view.
