Heavyweight boxing king Anthony Joshua met Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo while on holiday in Dubai
World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has gone toe-to-toe with Cristiano Ronaldo after the two posed for a photo on Thursday evening.
The pair, who are regarded as arguably the best in their respective sports, are currently enjoying breaks away in Dubai in a bid to escape the chilly winter conditions of England and Italy.
Joshua is enjoying one final trip away before returning to prepare for his next title defence against an opponent to be confirmed on April 13 at Wembley.
Ronaldo meanwhile has the luxury of Italian football’s winter break, meaning the Juventus man doesn’t return to action until January 21 in his quest to add the Serie A crown to his already astonishing record.
The duo met up following Ronaldo’s night of success after he was crowned Player of the Year at the Globe Soccer Awards in United Arab Emirates.
The Watford-born boxer has already bumped into Robin van Persie as the two enjoyed riding dune buggies in the desert.
