Anthony Joshua has continued to enjoy his busy social schedule with Manchester United stars in Dubai as the heavyweight boxer posed for a photo with Paul Pogba on Wednesday evening.

The 29-year-old has looked to escape the chill of England during the winter months and is building up to his next bout out in a far warmer and tougher climate.

United have also departed England for a few days as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer whisked his team away during a week off for some warm weather training ahead of the game with Tottenham.

After watching the Red Devils train and playing Teqball with Ashley Young this week, Joshua caught up with Pogba and posed with the in-form midfielder alongside the caption: ‘A Perfect Year 2 Boss Up’.

Wearing a black Hugo Boss tracksuit, Joshua looked casual as he and a member of his entourage took a picture with Pogba, who looked smart in ripped jeans, white trainers and black shirt.

Joshua’s team were given special access to watch Manchester United’s stars train in Dubai on Monday afternoon. 

Solskjaer’s team were put through their paces in the first session in Dubai after making the trip on Saturday evening following their 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading.

The heavyweight’s close friends Jonathan Constant, Kevin Ayodele and James Mulley all videoed Manchester United train during the session.

Young, who used to play for Watford – where Joshua is from, joined the undefeated boxer’s team for a game of Teqball.

Joshua and members of his team have also been taking advantage of the warm weather to train in the sun as he prepares for what will be another busy year for the Brit.

The IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion is focused on April 13 – the date for his next fight at Wembley – but it remains unclear who his opponent will be. 

After a successful dust-up in Los Angeles at the end of 2018, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are believed to favour a rematch.  

Fellow British fighter Dillian Whyte is keen to have a rematch with Joshua after losing to him back in 2015 and the two got into the ring together after Whyte’s recent win over Dereck Chisora at the O2 Arena.
