With the heavyweight scene so buoyant in the United Kingdom, Anthony Joshua has been the centre of attention as the Watford fighter continues to knock out all put in front of him.

However, the next few months will, no doubt, be dominated by blanket coverage of Tyson Fury as his chance to dethrone Wladimir Klitschko draws nearer.

But, heavyweights are difficult to keep out of the limelight and this morning, in The Sun is a wonderful recollection when Joshua, as an up and coming amateur sparred with Tyson Fury, this how Joshua recounts the incident,

?When I sparred with Fury I was an amateur and inexperienced. I had only been boxing about a year.

?I didn?t even know who he was, I just heard this big guy from Manchester had said that anyone who knocks him out can have his Rolex.

?So my coach said, ?If you want that Rolex, take it to him? ? so I went to war with him.

?If we fight down the line I want the watch to be on the line again. I?ve only got a rubber G-shock ? I want that Rolly.?


Now that would be interesting, a world title on the line, huge amounts of cash involved and a Rolex up for grabs!
