Anthony Joshua will be looking to recapture his world titles in August in his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk. Usyk holds three of the four major belts at heavyweight following his victory over Joshua in September. The one man who holds the other major belt at heavyweight is Tyson Fury, and he has given his English rival Joshua some praise ahead of his huge rematch.
Fury took to Twitter to post a video captioned 'Be Happy for @anthonyjoshua!!' where he goes on to say: "This is my defence of AJ.
"Everyones saying AJ's a bum, he's this, he's that, he can't fight, because he's lost a few.
"He has made it in life. The man could go to the pub every single day and drink Peroni if he wanted to, he could go on holiday every day, and play with his kids every day of his life. So, I don't wanna hear any more of this bullshit that AJ's this, AJ's that, that he's useless and can't fight.
"The man's made it, BE HAPPY FOR HIM!"

Joshua will attempt to recapture his belts against Usyk and potentially lure Fury out of retirement and fight for all the belts, in what would be one of the biggest fights in British boxing history.
