Anthony Joshua has taken to social media to wind up potential opponents as he itches to get his next fight lined up.

World heavyweight IBF and WBA champion Joshua posted a string of tweets to Joseph Parker, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury as he looks to secure his next big-money bout.

The 28-year-old's opening salvo - aimed at WBO heavyweight champion Parker - was a GIF of Kermit the Frog drinking tea.

The tweet read: ".@joeboxerparker Sips tea, continues to read tweets & refreshes email... Still No Offer."

WBC heavyweight Wilder was next on Joshua's hitlist, with the Watford-born fighter posting a YouTube video of a lengthy interview during which he urged the American to set up a title fight between the two.

An accompanying tweet said: "A little word on the @BronzeBomber fight. Ready & waiting for the offer =`=}."

A third quick-fire tweet was aimed in the direction of an out-of-shape Fury, with Joshua tweeting: "& @Tyson--Fury get fit you fat f***."

This prompted a response from BoxNation presenter Kugan Cassius, which seemed to rile Joshua.

It was suggested by Cassius that people were seeing "the real Anthony Joshua this morning", to which the boxer retorted: "The real anthony joshua? Because of what ?.... a swear word? Shut the f*** up."

He later told Cassius to "pipe down" as the series of seemingly out-of-character tweets came to an end.

Joshua, who defeated Carlos Takam by TKO to retain his IBF and WBA world heavyweight titles last month, insists potential opponents only talk of fighting him without making an official approach.

Most recently Wilder accused Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn of delaying negotiations regarding a potential match-up and Parker described him as his "preferred option"
