Lee told iFL TV: “It is a bizarre thing. Anthony Joshua‘s on one side, Tyson’s here.

“Then Ngannou came in and Tyson pulled him up straight away.

“He said, ‘Hey you, you’ve been talking about me in interviews, saying I’m a coward, calling me a yellow belly.’

“But Ngannou in fairness was quite cool and calm and went, ‘No I didn’t say that.’

“Tyson went, ‘You did. I beat you, I beat you.’

“Ngannou said, ‘No, no, no. I didn’t say that.’

“Tyson said, ‘What does your record say?’

“Then Tyson said, ‘You take care of your man, I’ll take care of mine and I’ll give it to you again.’

“He put it on him for a bit, it was interesting.”

Asked if Anthony Joshua, Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren were watching this exchange, Lee added: “They were there.

“And I was chatting to Tyson at the time and then there was Ngannou.

“I had a bottle of water, Joe’s water, in my hand. I said, ‘Joe, you better hold this.’

“Because I was worried about Tyson and his eye because his eye is still healing.

“But nothing came of it. Tyson probably had to do that because he wouldn’t be able to live with himself unless he pulled him up for saying what he said.

“I respected him for doing it, Tyson.

“And I respected Ngannou because it wasn’t like he s*** himself, or backed down, or apologised. He just stood his ground.”

Lee went on to say that although in close proximity to each other that Fury and Joshua didn’t speak to one another.

“They actually never said a word to each other, which was interesting,”

“We were walking shoulder to shoulder at one stage – me, Joe, Joshua and Tyson, but it just never happened.”
