Anthony Joshua trolls Derek Chisora on social media over new video | Football | Sport
Joshua and Chisora aren’t known enemies of each other – but ‘AJ’ has taken the time to poke some fun at ‘Del Boy’ in his latest training vlog.
In the video, Joshua can be seen filming a commercial where he’s being instructed to flip a table over.
And when the director shouts ‘action!’, it’s exactly what he does, sending food and drink flying.
Joshua, who has been regularly updating fans with his training camp ahead of his fight with Jarrell Miller in June, tweeted the video out soon after it was released.
The tweet read: “@DerekWarChisora how do you rate this table flip?”
Chisora has been known for his pre-fight antics in the past, getting into scuffles with the likes of David Haye and Dillian Whyte.
Before Chisora and Whyte fought the first time round, they car to blows at a press conference in London in which Chisora reacted angrily to something Whyte said.
Chisora’s instant reaction was to pick up the table he was sitting at and launch it at Whyte who managed to stop it from injuring him.
Boxing fans will certainly see Joshua’s jibe as a bit if humour – and if there’s anyone in the boxing world who can take a good joke, it’s Chisora.
Ahead of his fight with Miller, though, Joshua’s been talking seriously about the prospect of making an undisputed fight with Deontay Wilder.
“I think it will be class if I can fight Wilder for the undisputed title.,” he told Sky Sports.
“Then I could fight [Oleksandr] Usyk. Because then that would be the undisputed heavyweight champion versus the undisputed cruiserweight champion at heavyweight.
“That would be unbelievable.”
Usyk is making his heavyweight debut on May 25 against former Joshua opponent Carlos Takam.
If Usyk can win that, he’ll instantly become a mandatory contender for Joshua’s WBO world title belt.
Joshua, however, has to get through Miller first – as the two prepare to do battle at Madison Square Garden in New York June 1.
