AJ revealed that he read it in the boxing bible Boxing News Fury was in London looking for sparring partners – and if someone knocked him over, he got his expensive Rolex watch.

said Joshua Sky Sports: “It was early on when I was an amateur and didn’t know who Tyson was.

“I read on Boxing News that he was going around London gyms asking if someone would knock him out and let him keep his Rolex.

“Me and he had a direct war. We both have hearts.

“I couldn’t knock him out. He said afterwards: ‘Take care of this boy, he’s going to be world champion one day’.

“And he got his prediction right.”
