Anthony Joshua has reiterated his statement that Lennox Lewis is a ‘clown’ in a new Instagram post.
After hearing the former undisputed champion’s response to his interview released this morning, AJ took to social media to stand by his initial remarks.
Their feud has been bubbling under the surface for several months, but Joshua kick-started the war of words by telling Sky Sports: “Lennox is a clown. I don’t respect Lennox.
“Me and Lennox are not the same. My legacy is to sit back and enjoy the younger generation coming up, and not to be involved.
“Just to appreciate what it takes to get there. Lennox isn’t like that. Me and Lennox are cut from a different cloth.”
Lewis replied by tweeting: “Wow! He’s right! We ARE cut from a different cloth.
“Undisputed wasn’t something I ‘worried’ about. It was something I went after until it was accomplished.
“Disappointed in AJ’s words but I understand that this ‘jealousy’ narrative was only fabricated AFTER I criticised them for Wilder negotiations. All of the sudden I’m a hater.”
However, Lennox’s words do not appear to have won Joshua over, as he has now taken to Instagram and doubled down.
He posted: “Always say it how it is. A clown is a clown.
“He can wipe his make-up off, but his heart remains the same.
“No squares in my circle, cuz. G s*** only.”
