Both fighters take a break while waiting for their next matches, with Fury about to defend his belt in a trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder on December 19 in Las Vegas when he’ll be a big favorite to beat the man who he shut down in February.
Joshua is also expected to take out veteran Kubrat Pulev when the Bulgarian ex-champion challenges him later this year.
Former superbantamweight kingpin Gamal Yafai, who is signed up to the same Matchroom stable as Joshua, and Dave Coldwell, who manages former cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew, were among those who responded enthusiastically to the snap.
Agent Michael Jarman joked that Fury “clearly didn’t want to get out of his car.”
Joshua, who is a year younger than Fury at age 30, was pictured on Saturday dining with a group of friends at the resort before posing with an 87-year-old super fan.
