Tyson Fury mocks Derek Chisora’s claim that Anthony Joshua ‘could kick him out’.
Chisora, who was beaten twice by Fury, predicted that AJ had the punch power to turn off the lights of the Gypsy King.
But the WBC champion — who got off the floor to defeat heavy hitter Deontay Wilder in October — scoffed at the suggestion.
Fury said in a Twitter video: “This is a message to Derek Chisora, I just saw you said you thought AJ would kick me out. Never in a million years.
“If the greatest puncher in history can’t kick me out and Wladimir Klitschko can’t knock me out, then a grown-up bodybuilder can’t take me out my friend.”
Chisora, 38, is AJ’s former Finchley amateur boxing teammate and is now part of the British Superstars’ 258 Management Stable.
And he backed 32-year-old Joshua to harass 33-year-old Fury in a potential fight – but only when he comes down inside the distance.
Chisora told talkSPORT radio: “I’d go with AJ. AJ’s power punch is incredible.

“If AJ fights Fury, he has to go straight at him, blast him. He can’t box it. If he boxes with her, he loses.
“If you give Fury time on the ball you are in trouble.”
Joshua and Fury were finally all set to fight in the first ever four-belt heavyweight undisputed title decider in Saudi Arabia on August 14.
But the 36-year-old Wilder was still owed a contracted trilogy bout, which later canceled the all-English unification.
Fury went on to American KO after 11 epic rounds, but two weeks later AJ was stunned by 34-year-old Oleksandr Usyk on points.
Joshua is now ready to enforce his right to an immediate rematch in April, and with Chisora saying the right game plan, revenge is his.
If the greatest puncher in history can’t get me out and Wladimir Klitschko can’t get me out, a big old bodybuilder can’t get me out my friend.
Tyson Fury on Anthony Joshua
He added: “I think AJ wins a second time.
“When I talked to him I asked him if he had seen the fight back, he said he only saw four rounds because he didn’t like the way he boxed.
“I asked him what he was going to do” [in the rematch], he said: ‘You will see.'”
But in general, Fury doubts Joshua’s chances of avenging the loss to Usyak, saying he will be the one who gets knocked out.
He said: “So Dale, he doesn’t have the bottle to fight Usyk again. Usyk will break him next time, right.
“Never mind, beat him in the points, he’ll knock him out. But listen, it only takes a man like me.
“There’s only been one man on these shores, and he’s called the Gypsy King, AKA Tyson Fury.”
