Tyson Fury's dad has issued a chilling warning to Anthony Joshua amid speculation the pair will fight in a huge British unification fight. 

There has been call for the two champions of the heavyweight division to thrash it out in a mega-fight following Fury's stunning win over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Joshua holds the division's other three belts and there is no doubt a clash between the two, in a bid to crown the first unified champion since Lennox Lewis, would be one of the biggest fights of all time.

But Fury's dad, John, has told Joshua and Eddie Hearn to stay clear of his son because he will 'make your life a misery'. 

Speaking about the potential for a fight with Joshua,  'You're a nice guy. You look well, you've got a big future but when it comes down to the beating, fighting lion heart I don't think you've got it. 

'So, don't mess with Tyson Fury. Keep your belts, go and fight other people but don't mess with Tyson unless it's worth your while, because let me tell you it'll be the last time you ever box if you mess with him.

'He will wreck you! [He is a] 19 stone, 6ft 9in wrecking machine who will not stop coming forward but he'll come forward at you educated and he'll punish you and he'll school you and he'll break your heart.

'He'll make your life a misery and your life will never be the same again. So, think on. Eddie Hearn that's to you as well.'
