The future of British sport.

Ahead of Anthony Joshua‘s fight with Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev on 28th October, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford paid a visit to the unified world heavyweight champion’s camp.

The young striker started in both of England’s World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania, and after helping the team secure their place at Russia 2018 he spent some downtime chilling with the champ.

Rashford gifted AJ a signed shirt telling him to “Stay Hungry!”

Joshua has his sights set on becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion and if he makes it through this next challenge the 27-year-old from Watford will be set up nicely to potentially face Deontay Wilder in spring 2018.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said of AJ’s next steps: “I think Anthony’s next fight after Pulev will be abroad. Maybe Las Vegas, maybe the Middle East. Then his next fight after that will be a unification — and I want the Wilder fight.”

The future looks bright for both Marcus and Anthony.
