Anthony Joshua has taken a swipe at heavyweight rival Tyson Fury by claiming he 'should be looking to retire soon'.
The pair are hoping to clash in a highly-anticipated mega-fight next year that would see the winner crowed as undisputed champion, with both fighters holding all five world title belts between them.
And Joshua says he is 'here and ready' to share a ring with Fury, claiming it might be time for him to call it a day after turning professional 12 years ago.
