‘You screwed up, but it’ll be okay, Sean’: Ex-press secretary reveals WHY Trump forgave him after his shambolic ‘Holocaust centers’ gaffe and uses his new book to lift the lid on how The Donald weathered the ‘P****gate’ scandal
- Sean Spicer has released two excerpts from his new book ‘The Briefing: Politics, The Press, and The President’ …
ANTHONY JOSHUA is prepared to fight Tyson Fury next year — if the Gypsy King sheds another TWO STONE of blubber.
Former world heavyweight champ Fury ballooned to 27st 5lb during two years out of the ring with personal problems.
He trimmed down for his successful comeback against Albanian no-hoper Sefer Seferi in May and is now around 19½st.
But Watford heavyweight king AJ will not contemplate a blockbuster showdown with the Mancunian until he shifts some more lard.
Joshua said: “There’s no stopping Fury from stepping up to the plate.
“If the Deontay Wilder fight didn’t happen, I would happily fight Fury.
“But he’s still two stone over when he fought Wladimir Klitschko. Even though he’s lost weight he’s still two stone over his peak weight.
“When he’s a couple of pounds over, then I’ll say he’s at his peak again.
“Fury is not yet in condition. It’s up to him. When he’s ready, we’re ready.”
Fury has his next comeback fight against Italian southpaw Francesco Pianeta, a former European champ, in Belfast on August 18.
And Joshua took a swipe at Fury’s new training regime as he asked: “What does Fury do, two sessions a day?
“I would rather do two boxing sessions a day. He’s been saying he does one boxing session and one run — why?
“Are you trying to be a part-time boxer and a part-time track runner? I’d say get in the gym.
“Focus on your gym work. The best fighters spend more time in the gym than anywhere else.”

Joshua defends his WBA, IBF and WBO belts against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on September 22.
And the champ has banned long-time rival Wilder, the WBC holder, from getting in to the ring at Wembley.
The American has spent most of the past year claiming Joshua is too scared to fight him.
AJ declared: “Wilder can come to the fight against Povetkin, sure he can, but he also wanted to get in the ring.
“But I said: ‘You ain’t getting in the ring unless you sign the contract to fight me.
“You’re not going to make your name out of this, just sign the contract’.
“I’ve signed the contract already. Get it done, and then we’ll announce it.
“I’m all about doing the business first and then do the talking about it.”
