BOX fans have joked that Oleksandr Uysk “messed up” Anthony Joshua’s brain after he launched an adult tirade on the Brit’s Instagram Story.
This comes after promoter Eddie Hearn claimed talks were currently underway between AJ’s camp and Dillian Whyte for a scheduled August 12 fight.
However, when Johusa followed the promoter’s claim, he used his Instagram Story to deny he was unaware of the fight talks.
AJ, 33, was inspired by the lyrics of British hit rapper Stormzy, who will be leading the England team at this year’s Soccer Aid: “I don’t know about talks to fight Dillian Whyte.”
“Every day. AJ this, AJ that, AJ’s hairline goes way back but I’ll still fuck your girl and retweet that.”
A follow-up post soon followed, in which Joshua posted a picture of Stormzy to his story with the caption, “AJ is that, AJ is that.”
“AJ says, ‘Damn.'”
In response to the explicit posts, one fan responded, “AJ has officially turned heel.”
A second said: “Usyk has messed up his brain.”
A third typed: “He finally came out of his shell.”

“This AJ reminds me of the old AJ and I love him 😂💯,” admitted a fourth.
One fan even believes his Stormzy-inspired posts could mean the fight has started, claiming, “This could be a sign that the fight is already underway: didn’t Stormzy screw him in the first fight?”
In fact, Stormzy made an appearance back in 2015 when AJ defeated Whyte by TKO in the seventh round to win the British and Commonwealth Heavyweight Titles during AJ’s ringwalk.
The musician previously had a dispute with Whyte.
The heavyweight had claimed he could “take out” Stormzy, to which Stormzy responded by calling out on him on his song “One Take.”
Stormzy’s text read: “I made it, my husband lost it. The man held off a punch, the referee should have stopped it. Swapped it, had a chance you flopped it.”
“Threatening me won’t make you heavyweight champ, Rudeboy, cut it out.”
As well as a rematch against Whyte, Joshua has also been linked with a fight against Deontay Wilder.
In fact, promoter Frank Warren has even claimed that AJ turned down a fight with Tyson Fury in favor of a showdown with the Bronze Bomber.
