Video: Joshua shows off scary power, smashes punching bag sitting down

Anthony Joshua has left boxing fans stunned after showing off his punching power while sitting down in a recent training clip ahead of his Kubrat Pulev fight.

Joshua, 30, is set to defend his world heavyweight titles against Pulev later this year after the original date was postponed due to COVID-19.

And ‘AJ’ looks in fine form as he wowed the online boxing community with his scary power while sitting down.

The British star shared a clip of himself smashing a punching bag with powerful left-hooks from a seated position.

Needless to say, Joshua’s training video sent social media wild.

“This guy is sitting and still landing bombs,” one Twitter user wrote.

A second tweeted: “Left hooks from HELL.”

A third added: “Hardest hitter on the planet.”

Promoter Eddie Hearn says Joshua vs. Pulev could take place in a “quirky” location with Croatia offering a coliseum to stage the world title clash.

“Other ideas we have are 1,000 people somewhere strange and quirky. I’ve got a few things up my sleeve. We’re talking about castles, plush hotels, maybe even on a boat,” he revealed.

“Croatia have offered a coliseum – and that’s beautiful – and we’re still open to options and flexible.

“These are all things thinking outside of the box – it just depends what’s allowed.”

However, Hearn is looking at London’s O2 Arena which depends on whether the Government ease restrictions.

“By November, can we go to 16,000 people at the O2? Right now, we’re handcuffed by the regulations,” he added.

If victorious against Pulev, Joshua is slated to fight WBC title holder Tyson Fury in a monstrous two-fight ‘Battle of Britain’ deal in 2021.
