Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers went to watch Arsenal fan Anthony Joshua continue his surge towards boxing stardom as he ended the bout against Gary Cornish in just 90 seconds.
Joshua is the name on everyone’s lips in the boxing world and while many continue to downplay his success by focusing on the quality of his opponents, he’s just intent on demolishing whoever’s put in front of him.
The boy from Watford claimed the Commonwealth title and is now looking to clinch the European title while his promoter Eddie Hearn struggles to find opponents who can compete with the powerhouse.
Our English duo were in attendance and, given that they witnessed a very brief spectacle, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Chambers met Joshua backstage.
Arsenal news & rumours
The unbeaten heavyweight is an Arsenal fan and it wouldn’t surprise many if he personally invited the former Southampton academy graduates.
- Arsenal must outmanoeuvre Galatasaray to win race for £2m ‘bargain’ transfer
- Arsenal reportedly set to sign free agent after impressive trial
- Arsenal have ‘concrete interest’ in signing Bayern Munich II star
As Joshua continues to make waves in the heavyweight boxing division, he will certainly be hoping that our Arsenal side can blossom in a similar fashion towards a Premier League title.
