Published Add your comment

Anthony Joshua's skill in the ring is public knowledge these days after a number of high-profile bouts, but he has another talent that many won't be aware of until they tune into a new season of Sky One's 'A League Of Their Own'.   

In an advert for a brand new episode, which can be found below, Joshua is challenged by host James Corden to 'spit some bars' in front of the studio audience.

Thinking on his feet, he freestyles to music being played in the studio, much to the delight of the host and fellow panelists.

It's clear that should AJ decide to throw in the towel anytime soon, he'd have a pretty good backup career as a rap artist.  

In the ring though, it looks like he's far from finished.

He has held the IBF Heavyweight title since April 2016, beating Charles Martin in two rounds. He then retained his title against Dominic Breazeale in June after a magnificent seventh round knockout. 

Joshua has one of the best records in boxing today, boasting a 17-0 record, with all 17 wins coming from knockouts. He also has an Olympic medal, winning the Super-Heavyweight gold at the 2012 Games in London.    

You can see the footage of Joshua rapping in the video below.

The British champion will defend his IBF belt later this year in November, and his opponent will be announced next week.

He defends the title in Manchester, and it will be the second time he's fought there. He beat Konstantin Airich in three rounds in September 2014, before rising to the top of his weight class.

This time round in November, the eyes of the entire boxing world will be on Joshua as he looks to defend his title once again.
