Heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua seems to still be enjoying his extended break away from the ring as he took to the skies for his latest activity in Dubai.
Joshua, who has not fought since stopping Carlos Takam at the Principality Stadium in October, boasted on social media after braving the XLine zip line that took him from one of the Amwaj Towers across the marina to the Dubai Marina Mall.
The journey is one kilometre long and takes people 170 metres down to ground level at speeds of up to 80km per hour, offering up some picturesque views of the city along the way.
After completing the thrill ride, Joshua took to Twitter to share some snaps of him putting his thumbs up before and after making the daunting descent.
He accompanied the pictures with a post, writing ‘live life to the fullest’.
The 28-year-old, who currently holds the WBA Super, IBF and IBO world titles, remains in the United Arab Emirates as his promoter Eddie Hearn continues to negotiate with Joseph Parker over a potential unification clash.
The unbeaten New Zealander won the WBO version of the world title when he beat Andy Ruiz Jnr by majority decision in 2016 and has successfully defended his belt on two occasions.
Matchroom promoter, Hearn, has said the deal for Joshua to face Parker in the spring is edging closer after agreeing to sacrifice five per cent of the split to give Parker an overall cut of 35 per cent.
However, Joshua is also being chased down by heavyweight rival Tyson Fury, who wants to face the champion in his first fight back despite being inactive for over two years.
‘As a sporting challenge I lay down the challenge for @anthonyfjoshua to fight me in my first fight back in over 2.5 years,’ Fury wrote recently on Twitter.
‘I’m the best heavyweight on the planet come prove I’m not? The ball is in your court don’t let your fans down CHAMP.’
He continued: ‘I’m that good I don’t need any warm ups I can come off the couch and beat up on @anthonyfjoshua don’t run your big a*** in the bush, let’s fight this summer!’
