The unified heavyweight champion met his match in the UAE
Anthony Joshua looked directly into the eye of the tiger on Friday, as he posted videos of himself feeding the animals at a Dubai zoo.
The 29-year-old is enjoying his final weeks out of full training camp, before returning to prepare for his next fight on April 13 at Wembley Stadium.
Joshua seemingly enjoys the UAE as a destination, having also holidayed in the country previously.
This time around, he took a day to visit a high-profile zoo and was able to feed the incredibly tame big cats.
While the date and venue for AJ’s next fight is already confirmed, an opponent is not yet secured.
His number one target Deontay Wilder looks set to rematch his number two choice Tyson Fury following their December 1 draw, leaving the unified heavyweight champion with a list of contenders to choose from.
Following three notable wins in 2018, Dillian Whyte tops this list and called Anthony Joshua out for a rematch after his most recent victory earlier this month.
America’s Jarrell Miller is also seemingly in the running, should Joshua opt to scrap his Wembley date and head for a US debut instead.
