Anthony Joshua is currently on vacation over the holiday period and like former heavyweight champions before him — it would appear he is a fan of tigers.

Perhaps not to the level that one Mike Tyson was mind you.

Tyson as the story goes actually kept pet tigers at his home at one time and apparently wrestled with fully grown tigers on a regular basis.

While Joshua isn’t that wild, he’s met some tigers in Dubai and held one up as he hand fed the large cat:

Fair play, AJ.

As for his next fight on April 13th at Wembley stadium while it has not being confirmed just yet it is looking more and more likely that it will be against fellow Brit Dillian Whyte.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder look set to rematch next up.
