When an icon meets a legend…

World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua was in Dubai last week to officially close off the month-long Dubai Fitness Challenge.

Whilst he was in town he posted a cheeky selfie in front of the Burj Al Arab:

It turns out, however, that Joshua wasn’t just visiting the iconic seven-star hotel for a quick dip in the pool.

During his stay he filmed a pretty sweet video of him going a couple of rounds in a boxing ring… atop the Burj Al Arab’s helipad!

The custom Dubai-branded ring was set up in the centre of the helipad and the video shows a montage of the champ training, with an inspirational voiceover: “My opinion in life: stay hungry, keep your feet firmly on the ground and reach for the moon”.
