ANTHONY JOSHUA took a break from his build-up to the rematch against Oleksandr Usyk by joking around with Prince Naseem Hamed in Saudi Arabia.

The two-time heavyweight world champion is looking to reclaim his WBA, WBO and IBF belts on August 20 when he faces the unbeaten Ukrainian in the Gulf nation.

Billed as the ‘Rage On The Red Sea’, it will be the second time AJ has competed in Saudi Arabia after he outpointed Andy Ruiz Jr in December 2019.

And he is currently in the Middle East to promote his upcoming bout with Usyk as the pair stepped inside a ring for an intense staredown.

The duo also went face-to-face at a press conference on Tuesday as both men refused to take their eyes off each other for 90 seconds.

In footage shared by Boxing King Media, the two British icons could be seen in a jovial mood.

The pair shook hands and embraced while laughing, before posing for a picture together.

SunSport exclusively revealed last month how Prince Naseem was living up to his regal name by becoming a neighbour of the Queen in Windsor.

He subsequently revealed he is the “happiest” he has “ever been” after moving into the £1.4million property.

And to show he is living like royalty, the 48-year-old was snapped driving through Windsor in a £120k supercar.

He was seen in his Corvette Stingray as he waved to fans from the driver’s seat.

One onlooker who spotted Hamed in town said: “He used to be known for his killer punch and showmanship but now hardly anyone recognises him.

“But it’s good to see Prince Naseem living in the shadows of proper royalty.”
