‘When I start cracking your glass jaws, none of you will like it’

Anthony Joshua is known for being calm and respectful, even in the face of brash opponents, but that shouldn’t be mistaken for child’s play – as a group of university students recently discovered.

As reported by The Sun, the two-time heavyweight champion was passing through Loughborough University, where he moved his training camp ahead of his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, having spent his entire career at Sheffield.

At that point, a group of drunken students began shouting abuse at Joshua from what they thought was the safety of their residence halls.

Joshua took issue with the heckling, which involved them telling him they were dodging a Tyson Fury fight, and decided to confront the students and he didn’t mince words.

The British boxing star is said to have gone to their flat to speak to their hecklers, with Joshua saying: “Don’t forget you’re talking, because when I bring people here and I’m starting to crack your glass jaws, none of you will like it.

“When your jaws start to break and people start kicking you out of this college, none of you are going to like it.

“Watch your mouths because you don’t know who you’re talking to sometimes. I know, look, all this public eye bulls***, I’m not into any of this.

In the video, the students can be seen standing awkwardly in silence, much less brazen than a few minutes earlier when they shouted at ‘AJ’.

Responding to the reports, Fury – the WBC heavyweight champion – wrote on Twitter: “I have this effect on the best of them.”

Joshua is currently in training camp for his rematch with Usyk, which is set to take place on July 23 in the Middle East.

In the first fight, Joshua was masterfully knocked out by the Ukrainian who won via unanimous decision to win the unified WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight titles.

After the fight, “AJ” was widely criticized for his game plan of trying to have a technical boxing match with one of the best technical boxers of this generation.

Joshua insists he is “back to basics” for the rematch and will be looking for the knockout.
