In a social media video, Joshua noted how he allowed his 16-year-old cousin to experience ‘what £1.1million feels like.’

After speaking to the shop assistant who informed him about the item he was wearing, AJ said: “This right here is £1.1million…”

He then turned back to the assistant and joked: “I’ll take five of these please.”

Joshua’s next fight is set to be against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev, which details now being ironed out regarding the date and venue.

Promoter Eddie Hearn previously told talkSPORT: It’s been difficult because Kubrat Pulev doesn’t really wanna box in the UK.

“He’s a mandatory challenger, he’s saying, ‘Oh, we can get more money here, more money there.’

“Joshua’s basically put a line through that and said, ‘I don’t care, my next fight is in the UK.’

“That fight will take place in June, the frontrunner right now is Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

“We’ve still got a bit of work to do but you can expect an announcement in the next two weeks.”
