But son Tyson, 34, is not a fan and wants the surprise friendship over.
He told iFL TV: “He keeps blowing my dad off like, ‘Oh, I think John Fury’s a legend, he’s a top bloke.’
“Whatever you’ve got going on with him, I don’t like it sever ties with the old p****. Man’s a p****, s***house.
“All of a sudden he’s my dad’s best friend, ‘Oh, I want to go out for a drink with John Fury,’ he said.
“I was like what the f***! Why doesn’t he want to go for a drink with me? Because I would punch him in the mouth.”
The hilarious rant came after AJ claimed John would not let Tyson retire without the pair finally fighting.
Joshua, 33, said: “I don’t think his dad will let him not fight me. His dad’s a proper guy. I like his dad.”
The two-time heavyweight champion is yet to return following consecutive losses to Oleksandr Usyk, 35.

Usyk is now in talks for the division’s first four-belt unification against Fury, set for the Middle East.
It leaves AJ frozen out of the title picture and further than ever from a fight with the Gypsy King.
But John admitted he would be honoured to sit down for Joshua, as their mutual respect strengthens.
He said: “I’d be privileged to go out for a drink with AJ. I’m my own man, I say what I want to say.
“This is a sport, we’re in a boxing game, AJ is a nice kid.
“He’s given us a lot of pleasurable nights, he has been a good world champion and let me tell you something, if the kid gives me props, I can only thank him can’t I?
“I’d only be a p***k to say anything else wouldn’t I? But I am me, my son is him, I know my son is the best in the world by a country mile, but it don’t stop me liking anybody and AJ is a likeable guy ain’t he?”
