TYSON FURY used Anthony Joshua’s own ‘boss’ taunt against him after topping the latest Ring Magazine rankings.

Joshua, 31, is then the next-highest boxer in the division with Deontay Wilder in third.
He shared a graphic of the rankings and simply wrote: “I’m the boss.”
It comes six weeks after Joshua told his rival to ‘come and find the boss’ to finalise the plans for their blockbuster showdown.
The Watford star told Sky News: “We’re working on a date for around June.
“So if Tyson is serious, which I think he is, he’ll know where to come and find the boss.
“I’m ready. I’m really looking forward to competition, all I want to do is fight, fight, fight.”
Fury and AJ are finally set to step into the ring this summer for the first of their two-fight deal with all four major belts on the line.

The pair have still not finalised on a suitable venue – with Las Vegas and the Middle East strong favourites to host the fight.
But a 30-day expiration date to finalise the deal is up in just two days, meaning it could collapse this weekend – as Fury took to Instagram to remind the WBA, IBF and WBO king the clock is ticking.
While Fury may be ahead of Joshua in the Ring Magazine heavyweight rankings, neither made it into the pound-for-pound top ten.
Oleksandr Usyk, 34, is the only heavyweight in there – sitting fourth – while Josh Taylor crept in as the sole British representative.
