It won’t be easy to take out Joshua, especially when he is also working on his defense. Anthony Joshua has recently posted a video on his social media handle, showcasing his toughness.

Anthony Joshua knows how to give and take

“Life’s not about how hard can you hit, but how hard you can get hit and still keep moving forward.” Anthony Joshua seems to believe in this statement made by Rocky Balboa. While there are no doubts regarding his knockout power, ‘AJ’ is also trying to get his conditioning on point.
In the recent video, he stood in a gym with his fists tight. However, Joshua didn’t throw a single shot. Instead, he was on the receiving end of a beat down. His trainer Joby Claytons landed some massive body shots and ‘AJ’ ate them without complaining. Thus, it is safe to state that the world champion is gearing up for some intense action in his next fight.
