Anthony Joshua: Training, eating right and waiting for April


If you want to be a millionaire, you got to think like a millionaire and in the same vein if you want to be heavyweight champion you got to think like one and eat like one. Did I hear you say think and eat like Anthony Joshua?

The Nigerian born British boxer may not be fighting again until April, but the hard work doesn’t stop when you’re the heavyweight champion of the world.

Hard work and clean eating is the order of the day for the British favourite, as he posted various pictures and clips to his Instagram account.

Just a few hours after a difficult skipping routine at Finchley Boxing Club, he tucked into a healthy lunch of salmon, rice and kale.

Alongside the meal was a packet of Himalayan pink salt coconut tortilla chips, and sticking to the same theme – a coconut drink.

AJ also posted a black and white picture of himself practising his technique on a punching bag alongside a coach.

Meanwhile, there is still no update on who Joshua will face in his Wembley showdown in April. The venue is booked, but Matchroom are still working on an opponent.

Eddie Hearn insists his No 1 and No 2 targets remain WBC king Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, but they are instead set for a rerun of their December classic in Los Angeles.

Dillian Whyte is the bookies’ favourite to fight Joshua next but he slammed a recent offer made for an April 13 clash and Joshua’s promoter said last week that fans ‘should not be surprised’ to see AJ make his American debut against Jarrell Miller in June.

For now, though, all Joshua can do is keep himself fit… and if his recent videos are anything to go by, he’s certainly doing that.
