Ex-UFC middleweight title challenger mocked the former heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, after he uploaded a training video.
The British heavyweight boxer recently suffered a decision loss against his rival Oleksandr Usyk in a rematch. Now, Joshua is vigorously training to map his way back to the win column.
The 33-year-old is a socially active person who frequently posts his training videos on his social media account. Recently, Joshua did the same. However, his workout video was criticized by a former three-time UFC title challenger, Chael Sonnen.

Similarly, the former UFC title challenger has landed shots at the British boxer several times in the past. Sonnen also once stated that Joshua is the laziest boxer in the sport.
Anthony Joshua gets called out by Deontay Wilder
The Bronze Bomber is willing to face the former British champion in his own nation, according to The Sun’s reporting.
This week, Wilder achieved a stunning knockout victory in the first round. After losing to Tyson Fury before, Wilder returned to the win column with this triumph.
Wilder’s manager, Shelly Finkel, said in the interview that the heavyweight boxer, who turns 37 this week, intends to stop competing at age 40. He thus plans to participate in a couple more bouts during that period.
