Eric Dier messages Anthony Joshua on Twitter... jokes about arranging a fight

ERIC DIER BOXING

The Tottenham midfielder has continued his running joke with team-mate Dele Alli.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eric Dier has wished boxer Anthony Joshua all the best ahead of his fight with Charles Martin on Saturday night.

But the 22-year-old has also joked about his 'promoter' wanting a chat with Joshua after the fight.

Indeed, the Tottenham man has continued a running joke he's got with Dele Alli and is pretending he wants to box Joshua once he's 'got the job done' v Martin.

Spurs face a tough fight of their own this weekend as they host Manchester United.

Their recent record against Man United is far from ideal, while Louis van Gaal has somehow been able to grind out results against the bigger sides in the Premier League so far this season.

But Tottenham are by far the stronger team at this moment in time and can easily beat United if they produce a display anything like the one they did against cross-city rivals Manchester City earlier this term.

It should be an interesting encounter.
