Anthony Joshua may be preparing for his next fight with Carlos Takam, but that doesn't stop the WBA Super and IBF world heavyweight champion from taking a day off to show a celebrity the ropes. 

Joshua met former footballer Chris Kamara at his Sheffield training camp, but what ensued was not the standard interview format. 

AJ is currently training for his 20th fight and is looking to maintain his undefeated and 100% knockout streaks. 

The 28-year-old was originally scheduled to face Kubrat Pulev - the mandatory challenger for the IBF title - but the Bulgarian pulled out of the fight with a shoulder injury less than two weeks before the bout was due to take place. 

Though AJ himself requested to fight Dillian Whyte at Cardiff, Carlos Takam has stepped in and Joshua says the fight can't come soon enough. 

With preparation in full flow, Sky Sports pundit Chris Kamara visited the Brit to get the low down on how things are going ahead of his next title defence. 

The known joker was not prepared for what came next, however, as Joshua took his visitor inside the ropes to give him an all-access pass to how his form is shaping up. 


The two share a stare-down before Kamara breaks up the tension by quoting Bruno Mars lyrics. Joshua then suggests a 'little spar', with Kammy throwing in some steady jabs insisting he doesn't want to hurt the former Olympic gold medalist. 

Within a minute of watching the video below, it becomes very clear why Kamara picked football over boxing.

Nevertheless, it makes for pretty funny viewing, enjoy!
