Joshua is desperate to reclaim his heavyweight belts following his defeat in September 2021.

But AJ enjoyed a day outside of the gym as he joined friends and family – including his niece and two nephews – at a party in the park.

Clean Herts Community – the foundation set up by Joshua and friends which aims to help Watford and Hertfordshire in as many ways as possible – put on a free Easter Tea Party in Meridan Park on Sunday.

As kids enjoyed the Easter egg hunt, face-painting, petting zoo and bouncy castles, AJ enjoyed the down time with family.

But he was egged on to show off his boxing skills with a crack at the arcade boxing machine as part of Hard Hitters UK’s hunt to find the nation’s strongest puncher.

And Joshua didn’t disappoint, leaving the crowd’s collective jaws on the floor by clocking up a staggering score of 887.

Afterwards, he turned to the camera and roared “Watford’s winning”.

Later in the afternoon, the ever-growing flock of fans surrounded the local boxing hero as he gave a motivational speech in the glorious Hertfordshire sunshine.

But soon, Joshua’s attention will return to Usyk.

Contracts for the rematch have still not been signed as negotiations continue.

However, it is expected to take place in the coming months – with the fight set to be staged outside of the UK.
