Johnny Nelson hits back at Tyson Fury and warns him to get past Anthony Joshua before starting feud with him

JOHNNY NELSON hit back at Tyson Fury and joked he should get past Anthony Joshua before starting a feud with him.

Former crusierweight champion Nelson had picked Joshua to beat Fury in their proposed undisputed title fight, which has been verbally agreed for next year.

The Gypsy King, 32, hit back by warning the Sky Sports pundit – 'don't come kissing my arse when you see me anymore'.

But Nelson responded on Twitter: "Let’s have this conversation after you fight AJ."

It came after he had previously told talkSPORT: "I’ve gone public in saying I think Anthony Joshua is the all-round better fighter.

"I think Tyson Fury is better tactically and the more technically equipped, but AJ is the all-rounder.

"He can fight, he can box, he’s an athlete. Tyson Fury is a boxer.

"I think both men are now at a stage where they’ve done so much and learned so much in their careers that they’re so neck and neck.

“But, I’d go with Anthony Joshua because he’s shown me a lot more variety in his arsenal."

Fury caught wind of the comments, and responded in an interview with Behind The Gloves.

He said: "I respect Johnny Nelson's opinion too.

"Don't think I haven't seen that Johnny. 

"Don't come kissing my arse when you see me anymore, because you'll get that (raises his fist). 

"Yeah, listen. You've picked your guy and that's it."
