Joshua and Fury ran into each other in the Spanish party town and had a brief chat about their proposed double-header next year.

Dillian Whyte has accused Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury of staging their chat in Marbella.

The two heavyweight world champions ran into each other in the Spanish party town last month and exchanged pleasantries.

They each told the other to make sure there are no slip-ups in their respective next fights to ensure they can clash next year.

Joshua must first take on Kubrat Pulev and Fury must face Deontay Wilder before the two Brits can touch gloves in an undisputed fight.

But Whyte, who is also vying for a shot at Fury as his mandatory challenger, refuses to believe the rivals met by chance.

“That looked so staged. Those two just met at the right time and the right place, and they were just having a casual chat? The way they speak on social media – they want to do this to each other. It looks like it was just staged,” he told Sky Sports.

“I was just laughing. I was thinking to myself, ‘look at these two jokers.’ If I see someone and they’re talking smack about me and saying they are going to do this and do that, then when I see you, have the same energy. I’m not going to be standing outside your car window, standing on the sidewalk speaking to you. Come on man.”

Joshua and Fury have both been affected by the coronavirus crisis which saw their fights delayed significantly.

Joshua was due to take on Pulev in June but will now face his mandatory challenger in December, shortly before Fury is due to take on Wilder for a third time.

The American was knocked out in his rematch with Fury in February but triggered a rematch clause for a trilogy clash which had been pencilled in for July and then October.

Discussing his meeting with Fury, Joshua said recently: “”We’re going to put on a great show for the British public and for the world public, it’s going to be a massive fight.

“I’m looking forward to it, but what was cheeky about it was he couldn’t even get out of the car and offer me a drink.

“It wasn’t planned, he was just driving down the strip and I was walking down and we just bumped into each other.

“I don’t know how he saw me because I had my hat on and my mask on, he’s obviously got his eye on me.

“He’s probably following me around but he’s blown his cover!”
