Mayweather forced to stand on a chair
ANTHONY JOSHUA took his undefeated record to the home of another man yet to suffer a loss as he paid Floyd Mayweather a visit in Las Vegas.
And the boss of “The Money Team” had to use a chair to make himself taller than the British boxing sensation as they posed at Mayweather’s gym.
Joshua has been in Vegas looking at potential venues for his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko.
He and his promoter Eddie Hearn visited the T-Mobile Arena as the second clash against the Ukrainian heavyweight edges closer.
But keen to keep himself in shape after retaining his IBF heavyweight world title in the blockbuster bout at Wembley in April, Joshua called in at Mayweather’s gym.
And the five weight world champion star, who is preparing for his own mega-match against Conor McGregor next month, was there to greet him.
The duo were in a relaxed mood as they posed for a number of photographs, and there were smiles all-around as Mayweather climbed onto a chair to be at a similar height to the 6ft 5in Joshua.
The 27-year-old Watford-born fighter was keen to showcase some of his skills.
He made full use of the equipment on offer, giving an impressive display on the speed bag.
Joshua continued with some more light work before enjoying a laugh and a joke with his team.
He also posted snaps of his visit onto Instagram.
Joshua posed under the Mayweather Boxing Club logo and uploaded it along with the caption: “It’s only right… AJBXING / TMT.”
He also met fellow heavyweight Marcellus Williams and took photos with a series of fans.
