Anthony Joshua Warns Drunk Students They Risk Broken Jaws if They Abuse Him Again
Two-time former unified world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has warned drunk trolls against hurling abuses at him warning that they risk ending up with broken jaws.
The 32-year-old has moved his camp to Loughborough University and enjoyed mixing on campus.
It would be recalled that in May, after taking a late night stroll to ease a restless night, a group had showered him with drunken jibes from the safety of their dorm windows.
Bent on making an example out of them as well as put out a bold warning, Joshua has marched to their door, removed his trainers and confronted them for messing with the wrong guy despite being without his entourage.
After a recent visit to SunSport HQ to promote the August 20 rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, Joshua had taken his time to recount the incident.
“One night I couldn’t sleep at 3am so I went for a walk.
“And the reason I had to address them is that their block and my block are next to each other and they cannot get comfortable calling me names from a window.
“I told them ‘I am here to work, I am not playing games with anyone and they were crossing the wrong person’.
“There were four or five of them and that’s the only reason I dealt with them in that fashion.
“I told them that, if they see me on my own again and they want to shout that s*** at me, I will break your jaw.
“We left it at that and I spoke to them afterwards and we shook hands.”
AJ added that afterwards, the gang of bottle jobs now refuse to look at him around the site, even though he has been buying them pizzas once a week since his arrival.
He, however, stands firmly by his decision to face up to the crowd and hopes it stops them pulling similar stunts against weaker preys.
“I showed them so much respect when I first got there,” he said. “I buy them all 100 pizzas every weekend, I try to do what I can for all people and they are uni students.
“And I feel sorry for any student that might need to walk past that window and feels like they can’t because they are afraid of getting abused or threatened.
“When people are intoxicated they are not their normal selves, alcohol does not help.
“But I am a normal person and I have good and bad days.
“You cannot expect me to be different from anybody else just because of what I have to lose.
“You could take it all, take everything I have, and I will still be the same man.
“I don’t act a certain way because I want to keep what I have, I am just who I am.
“If you cross me, you are crossing the wrong person. I don’t take s*** from anyone, that’s rule No1.”
