British professional boxer Anthony Joshua celebrated his 30th birthday, but was distracted by drug testers the moment he was about to cut his cake.
Joshua , 30, has been working hard for his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia on December 7.
The talented boxer’s day, which was supposed to be a happy and joyous moment, was characterised by a surprise drug test.
In a video shared on social media, Joshua’s pals were seen bringing out a humongous cake – only for the doping testers to arrive.
Joshua was forced to give a blood sample – and probably didn’t have any cake either.
Concerning his fight with Ruiz Jr, the Watford boxer has massively trimmed down in recent weeks as he looks to become quicker and more mobile – shedding plenty of muscle mass in the process.
Recorded as one of the sport’s biggest shocks Joshua lost his first-ever professional fight to Ruiz in June, and is set to more than double his net worth from the upcoming rematch.
And fans are thrilled that he looks “more like a boxer than a bodybuilder” now as he looks to exact revenge.
On his new look, some fans made comments as one fan said: “Joshua looks a lot better now he’s shedded the weight. Like he just wanted to pose for Instagram before.”
A fellow user wrote: “Yes AJ. The 2014/15 lean, mean, hook-wielding, uppercut-throwing machine is back by the looks of things.”
Another commented: “Anthony Joshua cutting plenty of weight for his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr is absolutely what’s needed.”
A fellow user posted: “AJ appears to have lost some muscle mass which is great, he was better when not as big.”
Another wrote: “AJ was way too heavy for the first fight. This time he’s already shaved all that muscle off. Light work this time, he’s going to ruin Ruiz.”
But Ruiz too has shed the pounds, swapping Snickers bars for avocado and working on his core, cardio and speed in the gym.
