A group of university students were left stunned when Anthony Joshua stormed into their accommodation.
Joshua, the former heavyweight champion, blasted: “Watch your mouths.”
The drunken group taunted the 6ft 6in heavyweight from their halls of residence as he walked past and was told that he was ‘afraid of Tyson Fury.’
Soon after, Joshua was quick to storm into their dorms. Per The Sun, Anthony was quick to confront the hecklers.
He said: “Remember you’re running your mouth because when I start cracking your glass jaws, none of you will like it.
“Watch your mouths because you don’t know who you’re talking to sometimes.”
A witness at Loughborough University said: “I don’t think they expected him to retaliate and I don’t think they’ll be doing something like that again.

“But why would you target one of the toughest guys on the planet?”
On top of that, a source said: “Lots of profanity and abusive language was chucked at him while the students hid in an upstairs window. They picked on the wrong man.
“They should be more careful.”
Joshua is currently preparing for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk. Promoter Eddie Hearn reveals that details will be announced soon.
The rematch is due to take place in Saudi Arabia on July 23. Anthony lost the first encounter with the Ukrainian via unanimous decision.
It’s fair to say that there is a lot on the line for the Englishman. Should he win the rematch, it could persuade ‘The Gypsy King’ to come out of retirement.
A fight between Joshua and Fury could go down as one of the biggest fights in the history of boxing.
However, another defeat against Usyk will all but end a dream showdown against the undefeated heavyweight champion in Fury.
As for Usyk, should he win, then he too will be hoping for a potential showdown against Tyson.
