'And that's what you have to do with Tyson Fury'.

"If he needs a tune-up for a title fight, why not fight a 45,000-year-old man? He's a chump, he's a punk", Briggs said.

Fury ducked and dodged his way to the WBA, WBO, IBF, the ring magazine and lineal heavyweight titles against Wladimir Klitschko a little under two years ago to reach the pinnacle of his career.

"I had a fight the week before him and then he fought [a brutal first-round knockout of Bermane Stiverne] and he mentioned I'm running scared".

Tyson Fury is a larger than life character, and his career has seen many ups and downs.

"My target is Tyson Fury".

Whilst speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News, the 45-year-old from Brooklyn named the fighter he wants to get back in the ring with.

He predicted that BJP might release a "fake sex CD" to win the Gujarat Elections and called it a "typical" BJP move. He also denied that such maligning practice was initiated by the BJP against its own leaders in the past.

Briggs' last fight as in May 2016 when he knocked out Argentina's Emilio Zarate in the first round at London's O2 Arena.

"I hope people don't make this as awkward as they want it to be, if they're realistic about what they want we can definitely make this fight happen".

"This is the biggest fight for both of us, besides him getting a massive title fight".

Fury saw the video and responded to the remark, tweeting: '10 men like you AJ couldn't make me put my tail between my legs. "Once I knock out "the whale" - that's what I call Fury - I bet that Wladimir Klitschko will come back [to fight me]".

But the former world champion clearly has Joshua in his sights and the pair have begun their war of words ahead of a potential 2018 bout.

A fight with Anthony Joshua has been talked about and could be a step closer now that Joseph Parker has rejected an initial approach from Eddie Hearn. I've still got a lot more energy.

"I had spent the last three-and-a-half months training for this last guy, so there was no talk of me ever fighting you up until he had a fight". Even at 25 stone. But yet you say AJ is better, I know you won't admit the truth to the world but in your mind you know the truth and so does Vitali!
