Heartwarming moment Anthony Joshua holds 87-year-old woman’s hand and talks to her about boxing on Marbella holiday

ANTHONY JOSHUA was captured holding an 87-year-old woman’s hand and talking to her about boxing career on his Marbella holiday.

The unified heavyweight world champion is still nursing a knee injury which has caused his next fight, against Kubrat Pulev, to be backdated until the end of the year.

Joshua, 30, has taken the time to rest and recover in Spain – where he was filmed giving Tyson Fury fans a cheeky middle finger.

But in more heartwarming footage AJ holds the hand of an elderly fan and asks her which boxers she follows.

Despite the injury, Joshua has still managed to find inventive ways to train.

The WBA, IBF and WBO champion recently released a video of himself sitting down and hammering home vicious left hooks.

AJ injured himself while running and was advised to wear a leg brace as a precaution.

Promoter Eddie Hearn plans to stage his mandatory defence against 39-year-old Pulev in front of a reduced crowd, with a boat, castle or plush hotel among the wildcard venue options.

He said: “Other ideas we have are 1,000 people somewhere strange and quirky. I’ve got a few things up my sleeve.

“We’re talking about castles, plush hotels, maybe even on a boat.”

It sets him up for a historic undisputed title decider against WBC king Tyson Fury, 31, next years after they agreed a two-fight deal.

Standing in the way, though, is WBC mandatory Dillian Whyte, 32, and WBO No1 challenger Oleksandr Usyk, 33.
