British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua, has returned to training ahead of his possible fight with the winner of the Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk showdown.

The 34-year-old looks to be at his best one month after he defeated Francis Ngannou via a TKO in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

He was spotted with coach Ben Davidson, who is also a former boxing champion.

The legend backed the two-time former world heavyweight champion to continue fighting into his 40s.

It was his second time under the watchful eyes of the experienced Davison who trained him ahead of the stoppage win over Otto Wallin in December.

Joshua shared a picture of himself in Davison's Harlow gym on the pads. His sparring partner Jeamie Tshikeva stated that AJ will become a world champion for a third time.

He told Boxing News:

"I don’t think AJ was scared before. The difference is he’s very confident. He believes in what Ben and Lee Wylie are teaching him. That’s what gives him the confidence to do what he’s doing.
"I just feel like AJ’s going to be a three-time world champion and the way he’s moving he’s added three maybe five years to his career.”

AJ awaits information on his next fight, but the bout between Fury and Usyk on May 18, could determine his fate.

Fury and Usyk are also billed for a rematch right after, meaning he might have to wait longer to know his next opponent.

Joshua still lives with his mother

Sports Brief earlier reported that British heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua recently opened up on why he still lives with his mother at the age of 34.

AJ, as he is fondly known, has made a name for himself in the boxing world, thanks to his success in the ring.

Joshua is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, holding the prestigious WBA (Super), IBF, and WBO titles twice between 2016 and 2021.
