ANTHONY JOSHUA already looks in peak condition having started training camp to fight Oleksandr Usyk.
The unified heavyweight champion defends his titles against mandatory challenger Usyk in September, expected to be at Tottenham’s stadium.
AJ had spent some time holidaying in Spain but continued to train, even trying his hand at MMA.
But the fun appears to have stopped for Joshua, who looked like a mean machine in his latest Instagram post, where he is lifting a weight.
Former boxer Ashley Theophane, 40, commented: “#Beastmode NO PAIN. NO GAIN.”
Kal Yafai, 32, wrote: “Man like femi!!!”
Brother Gamal Yafai, 29, followed up: “Beast!!”
Former sparring partner Peter Kadiru, 24, said: “The champ is here.”
Joshua, 31, has not fought since beating Kubrat Pulev, 40, in December by ninth-round knockout.
AJ was ordered by the WBO to face Usyk, 34, after his unification with Tyson Fury collapsed.

The Brits had agreed terms for a first-ever, four-belt heavyweight undisputed title decider.
But Fury, 32, had tried to walk away from a contracted trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder, 35, who took the dispute to arbitration.
Wilder was later awarded the right to fight his heavyweight rival again, setting up a second rematch on July 24 in Las Vegas.
But it has now been postponed till October 9, after Fury and other members of his training team tested positive for coronavirus.
