Anthony Joshua goes on rare tweet spree and jokes he ‘usually gets paid for talking this much’

ANTHONY JOSHUA went on a rare Twitter spree with eight tweets in just ONE HOUR.

Joshua addressed several boxing topics on his personal account leaving even himself surprised, joking he doesn’t usually talk so much unless he is getting paid.

AJ tweeted: “Ok mo fo’s I usually get paid for talking this much or Kugan chases me around boxing venues until he pins me down! I’m out Toodles.”

Joshua opened up about his next potential opponent during his spree as his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk appears to be shelved.

Usyk took the brave decision to take up arms for Ukraine to fight Russia, after Russian president Vladimir Putin led his army to invaded the heavyweight’s country.

Both AJ and his promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed they will be open to an interim fight in the meantime with various names being thrown into the mix.

It all started when a fan suggested that the 32-year-old would dodge fellow British boxer Joe Joyce, who is a WBO mandatory challenger and has a good shot of stepping in.

Joshua posted: “‘Rolls Eyes’ You really think I wouldn’t fight [Joe Joyce]?”

The Watford hero added: “Lol ok … I’ve shared this ring with most people you see in the heavyweight division today! I boxed Otto Wallin twice as youngsters & I boxed Joe and stopped him in 1 round. I’d do the same thing today! Ain’t nothing changed.”

Joshua also had some fun with other tweets, such as a post which suggested he is “scared” of Deontay Wilder.

The British star insisted he never ducked Wilder and instead claimed the American heavyweight wasn’t ready to fight him.

He used a previous tweet by the Bronze Bomber in which he admitted he turned down a clash with AJ, even though he was offered more money.

Joshua posted: “Need I say more! Let’s put this “ AJ ducked “ saga to rest. I respect Wilder he’s a good fighter. He just wasn’t ready to fight me!”
