Tyson Fury wants Donald Trump to walk him out against Anthony Joshua
Fury is a former three-belt champion of the world after beating Wladimir Klitschko to take the IBF, WBA and WBO titles.
However, the Brit subsequently vacated the belts, citing problems with depression and cocaine use, and has now been out of the ring for more than two years.
But Fury is on the comeback trail, today posting a series of messages proclaiming his return to training and calling out Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
And now he has tried to get the controversial US president involved as well in a move that would represent one of the most spectacular and unexpected walkouts in boxing history.

“Who do you think wins the fury vs AJ fight?” Fury tweeted, tagging the president’s account, which boasts 41.5 million followers, in the message.
“You can walk me out if you want, be a part of the biggest fight ever.”
Fury believes he has all the ability to become unified heavyweight champion despite having never defended the titles he won from Klitschko.
It is not clear whether he would rather fight Wilder (38-0) or Joshua (20-0) first but the 29-year-old appears confident of inflicting a first ever defeat on both men.
Anthony Joshua is the IBF and WBA world heavyweight champion
“I reckon I can beat Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder now even at 25 stone & after being out almost 2 years!” Fury said on Twitter.
“My style is unbeatable.
“Ask Wlad[imir Klitschko].
“My fight with Joshua will be won with my feet!
“Can't hit what you can't see!
“The best footwork in the game.
“I'm gonna stop you Anthony Joshua inside 8 rounds watch me go.
“Let's make it [sic] Britons biggest fight ever, I say we get Lennox Lewis and Frank Bruno involved in the #furyvsAJfight.”
