World heavyweight champions Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua bumped into one another in Marbella on Saturday.

The two boxing superstars recently reached a ‘financial agreement’ for a two fight deal next year.

And Joshua sparked even more excitement for the fight by posting a picture of the pair meeting each other while in Spain.

Joshua revealed the photo along with the caption: “Sweeeeeeeeeeeet Caroline!! Ohhhh ohhh ohhhhh 👊🏾💥."

Sweet Caroline is the song played before every Matchroom Boxing show’s main event, including all Joshua fights.

But before Joshua and Fury can meet next summer both of them have their own fights to take care of.

AJ is set to face IBF mandatory Kubrat Pulev later this year after the June 20 date was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And Fury is expected to fulfil his contractual obligations by granting Deontay Wilder a trilogy fight at the end of 2020.

The Gypsy King destroyed the American inside seven rounds back in February, but Wilder has the right to invoke a rematch clause.

There is also the matter of fellow Brit Dillian Whyte being Fury’s WBC mandatory.

The Body Snatcher is hoping to secure his shot at Fury’s title before February of next year.

But providing both come through their respective challenges, AJ and Fury look set to collide next year in what will be the biggest fight in British boxing history.
