Eddie Hearn this week revealed that Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury may be on a collision course this year, following Anthony Joshua's victory over Charles Martin to claim the IBF World Heavyweight Championship.

Fury overcame Vladimir Klitschko on points to strip the veteran champion of his belts and become the undisputed heavyweight world champion.

Having been stripped of his IBF title, Charles Martin won the belt only to be blown away by Joshua in a second round stoppage.

"He's just another naked bum in the shower" Fury told media of Joshua and says he doesn't mind who he gets to fight so long as he gets paid.

Speaking after the press conference about the fight, Tyson's father John said that the media have shown his son little respect.

"I'm sick of listening to bulls**t from  proper people, they need to pull their socks up" he said.

"They showed a lack of respect with those daft schoolboy questions and you could see that Tyson was in one of them moods where he was going to take the p*ss out of them.

"And you know why? Because he came in and smelled no respect, so he was giving none. And I weren't going to give any."

Billy-Joe Saunders also features in the video and gives his take on why Wembley will not be the venue for the Klitschko rematch.

"What I heard was that Wembley Stadium wouldn't allow the fights to go on there because of what happened at the ExCel [Arena]. That's what I heard and because of the travelling background. That's the reason Wembley stadium wouldn't take the fight."
