ANTHONY JOSHUA has built quite the fanbase on his ascent to the top of boxing and celebrity supporters do not come much bigger than Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

‘AJ’ has entertained Zlatan’s boss, Jose Mourinho, in his changing room at previous fights, but on Saturday it was the Swede’s turn to get up close and personal with the champion.

The Manchester United striker visited Joshua in his changing room ahead of his 10th-round win over Carlos Takam, with Joshua referring to the pair as ‘lions’.
