World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua told the Daily Mail of his favorite guilty pleasure during his rare off-season.

Joshua revealed that there is nothing he enjoys more than going out to eat during his off days and ordering a burger and chips.

The 6ft 6" Joshua is known for his extremely intensive workouts and top shape physique that has landed him great success in his boxing career thus far.

To keep his rugged stature, Joshua does not have off days very often, but when he does, he can most likely be found at his local burger restaurant.

Speaking to the Daily Mail about his favorite off camp time meal, Joshua said: “I don’t look at a menu when I’m out of camp, I just order a burger and chips.

“It’s always simple, good food – a bit of apple crumble, ice cream, stuff like that.

“Because when you’re in camp, you really do lock yourself down.

“Fighters do go into that mode where they just switch off from everything and it’s just [about] preparing for the fight ahead.

“You know you have 12, ten, eight weeks to get ready for it. So you’re doing everything possible to leave no stone unturned.”

Boxing at Wembley Stadium

By many boxing fans worldwide, Joshua is considered one of the top fighters in the world, especially following his victory over Wladimir Klitschko at a packed Wembley crowd in April.

Joshua's boxing success has given him a great career, but he never always dreamt about becoming a boxer.

When asked what he always dreamt about becoming as a young boy, Joshua said: "I wanted to be a fireman or something like that. It's exciting - the sirens - but that was when I was about six."

Whatever it is that Joshua is doing in his life or will do following his boxing career, there is one thing that keeps Joshua motivated and that is "Legacy."
