Anthony Joshua has revealed his interest in fighting Tyson Fury has wilted and has stated he is becoming "a bit bored" of the talk surrounding a potential fight.

Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs), who is scheduled to fight Joseph Parker on March 31 in a unification bout, believes boxing should move on if Fury doesn't want to return to the ring.

Asked who he wants to fight next, Joshua told Fight Hub TV: "Not so much Fury anymore because I'm a bit bored of the talking.

"I just want to see him get back in action and sometimes I say the right thing and I say I'm looking forward to him getting back and other times I say I just can't be bothered because it's just an ongoing situation.

"For me when I won the championship belt I stayed active and carried on progressing and he didn't. It's a shame because these are like his glory days now.

"It's his decision to not box. No one forced him not to box it was his decision he had two rematches scheduled with Klitschko he didn't take the fights, he's been inactive for two and a half years.

"Should the whole boxing industry stop and wait for him? He hasn't addressed his situations properly. I'm not going to stop my career. I'm going to keep on rocking and rolling."

Joshua also announced views that he does not believe Fury "is the man" following on from his unanimous decision victory over Wladimir Klitschko back in Nov. 2015.

"Remember people forget before the Klitschko fight Fury wasn't regarded as an exciting fighter or the man of boxing," Joshua said. "He's talking gained him the respect recently and the adversity's he has faced has gained him a lot more attention than his boxing style.

"He even struggled to sell out the Manchester Arena [in the proposed Klitschko rematch].

"When you say 'I have to beat the man,' I don't really think he is [it]."
