Heavyweight sensation Anthony Joshua has recently shown that he is also good with a ball at his feet.
In a video uploaded to social media, Joshua captioned the post: ‘Kicking ball with my childhood hero.’
Beckham rolled back the years with an exquisite free-kick into the corner of the net, leaving the keeper rooted to the spot.
Next up was the former WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion. The 33-year-old showed that he has some skills of his own, finessing the ball into the corner of the goal.

It’s fair to say that AJ’s strike raised a few eyebrows, with the boxing star giving the keeper no chance of saving the ball.
Former Red Devils midfielder Beckham is currently in the news after he recently launched his Netflix documentary titled ‘Beckham’ – which follows Posh and Becks in their personal and professional lives, going through their history together with interviews of the couple.
In the highly-anticipated documentary, the Englishman revealed he had to be held back from Sir Alex Ferguson during their infamous row in 2003 after the legendary Scot kicked a boot at the ex-England captain.
As for Joshua, the 33-year-old is currently waiting for a fight and is coming off of a stunning knockout win over Robert Helenius back in August.
While the boxing world is itching to see Joshua step in the ring with Deontay Wilder, it looks as if fans may have to wait a little longer before they get to see the pair go head-to-head.
Joshua could have a shot at the vacant IBF heavyweight world title after Tyson Fury’s agreed deal to fight Oleksandr Usyk opens up a fresh possibility.
ESPN reported there was a two-way rematch clause confirming a second bout between the two, it gives the Brit a chance to fight for the IBF title.
The rematch clause will allow the loser of Fury v Usyk I to force a second fight, but this will not be an undisputed bout. Should there be a rematch, it allows Joshua to face undefeated Croatian Filip Hrgovic.
