Anthony Joshua delivered a cheeky response to a group of Tyson Fury fans in Marbella last summer.
The unified heavyweight champion spent time relaxing on the Costa del Sol before heading to camp for his victory over Kubrat Pulev.
While at the Opium Beach Club taking selfies with fans, AJ was filmed from a distance by supporters of his biggest rival.
The band “Gypsy King’s” started singing “There’s Only One Tyson Fury”, after spotting Joshua.
He responded by laughing and jokingly showing them his middle finger.
The two Britons signed contracts to fight twice in 2021, but in the end their fight fell apart.
Deontay Wilder’s arbitration victory forced Fury to fight him for a third bout, scheduled for October 9, live on talkSPORT.
Meanwhile, AJ will now defend his belts against Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday night.
Joshua told Sky Sports News about the situation with the fans: “Funny, I was at a little pool party, relaxing with a few of my boys.
“Some of the Tyson Fury fans were there and it’s like a healthy division, a sports division by the minute. You know, ‘Tyson Fury or AJ.’
“And Tthey’re screaming “Oh Tyson Fury” as I walk away, so I waved at them.
“Just to recognize and let them know that I’m still here, I’m one of the guys too.
“On the way back, they tried to start over, so I went to confront them.
I said, ‘Look, I’m here for jokes and stuff, but don’t make it a disrespectful thing, we’re all here to have a good time.
“It calmed the situation down a bit.”
