Warren also said: "Until anyone beats Fury they can not rightfully call themselves the world heavyweight champion because he didn't lose his titles in the ring".

Brash "Gypsy King" Tyson Fury has just announced his comeback bid will be happening this year, having just signed a multi-fight deal with big shot promoter Frank Warren as he looks to put doping scandals and personal issues behind him.

Warren, though, believes Fury needs "three or four fights" before being ready to take on Joshua.

Fury has not boxed since he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko back in November 2015 to claim the IBF, WBA and WBO titles on an unforgettable night in Germany.

Meanwhile, fellow Briton Anthony Joshua holds the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO titles, while unbeaten American Deontay Wilder holds the WBC belt.

Fury said Joshua would be no match for him.
