'I have this effect on best of them' – Tyson Fury reacts after Anthony Joshua is heckled by students about Brit rival

TYSON FURY has reacted to Anthony Joshua's encounter with a bunch of gobby Loughborough University students.

SunSport revealed this week that AJ gave the boozed-up loudmouths a stern talking to after they taunted him from their flat window and claimed he was scared of the Gypsy King.

It didn't take long for Fury to get wind of the incident, which he's taken credit for.

Along with a headline rehashing the story, Fury tweeted: "I have this effect on the best of them."

Boxing fans were quick to comment, with one saying: "Rent free."

Another said: "Living rent-free in his head."

And another said: "This is what happens when you know you cannot win."

Footage of the incident showed the students quaking in their boots after Joshua was let into the dorm and told them to watch their mouths.

He said: “Remember you’re running your mouth because when I start cracking your glass jaws, none of you will like it.

“Watch your mouths because you don’t know who you’re talking to sometimes.”

A source told SunSport: “Lots of profanity and abusive language was chucked at him while the students hid in an upstairs window.

"They picked on the wrong man. They should be more careful."

Joshua, 32, is currently gearing up for a high-stakes summer rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

The pair's second showdown is slated to take place in Saudi Arabia on July 23, although, as of last week, contracts for the desert dust-up weren't finalised.
