And while most considered it a boxing masterclass, the division’s youngest ever champion had an alternate view.

Tyson, who first reigned aged 20, tweeted at the time: “After watching the Joshua vs Usyk fight, maybe they had a bad day that night.

“From that performance do you really think they could have beat me in my prime?”

Fury, only responding to the comment now, posted: “@MikeTyson you would of (sic) chinned the pair of p****s.”

Tyson, 55, made a remarkable comeback in November 2020 and drew in an exhibition with fellow American legend Roy Jones Jr, 52.

He vowed to return again and even opened the door to a remarkable fight for the ages against Fury, 33, or Joshua, 32.
