Stipe Miocic rips heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua on social media.

Boxing vs. MMA is all the rage at the moment. That, of course, due to the bombshell announcement of Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather in a 12-round boxing match at the T-Mobile Arena on August 26.

Since the official announcement last Wednesday, several UFC fighters campaigned for boxing-MMA crossover fights on the undercard.

Amongst them, UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, who called out British boxing heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua for a ‘tussle’ followed by some ‘tea and crumpets’ afterwards.

Joshua, who beat Wladimir Klitschko via TKO earlier this year, responded to Miocic and an article from the International Business Times with the perfect comeback.

Miocic, who battered Junior dos Santos at UFC 211 last month to retain the heavyweight title, made his own savvy comeback to Joshua on Monday.

Whilst both fighters would probably be interested in throwing down in the boxing ring, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe told Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour that Mayweather vs. McGregor will feature no crossover fights on the undercard.

“This will be 100% pure boxers in the show,” Ellerbe said.

Mayweather vs. McGregor, which will net McGregor the biggest payday of his career, takes place on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
