Joshua was left battered and bruised at the hands of the wily Ukrainian at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last year, having suffered his second defeat.
And, taking to social media earlier this evening, the Gypsy King mocked AJ, labelling him a ‘big useless dosser’ for allowing Usyk to take away his straps

‘You know what I can’t believe, that AJ has has gone and given Ukraine all the heavyweight belts back after all my hard work in stealing them,’ he said on Instagram. ‘You big useless dosser.
‘You let a little man come up from middleweight and set about you and take all your belts. Now it is going to take a real British Lancaster Bomber like me to go and bring the belts back to Britain!
‘You are useless dossers. Honestly bring them to me. I am the “Gypsy King”. Bring them to me and I will put them in their place.’
Fury was able to down Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, having delivered a show-stopping performance to unify the division.
Both Joshua and Fury have long since been engaged in a war of words, and they were meant to face off against each other in a money-spinning undisputed clash.
However, the latter was told to face Deontay Wilder in a trilogy fight, forcing Fury to plan instead to take part in a Battle of Britain showdown after Joshua’s next fight.
But this was also scuppered when Joshua lost his belts ahead of the third fight, and has already activated the rematch clause written into his contract.

Meanwhile, Fury and Dillian Whyte have been given another week by the WBC to reach an agreement over their purse split ahead of a potential world title fight.
Whyte is now the mandatory challenger, and the interim champion, after beating Alexander Povetkin in their rematch last March.
He is unhappy that Fury is set to receive 80 per cent of the total purse for the bout.
