Anthony Joshua meets Cristiano Ronaldo while holidaying in Dubai

Joshua is enjoying one final trip away before returning to prepare for his next title defence against an opponent to be confirmed on April 13 at Wembley.

Ronaldo meanwhile has the luxury of Italian football’s winter break, meaning the Juventus man doesn’t return to action until January 21 in his quest to add the Serie A crown to his already astonishing record.

Juve currently sit top of their league, nine points clear of closest rivals Napoli at the halfway stage.

AJ’s next foe remains up in the air, although Eddie Hearn recently conceded that Dillian Whyte is the “frontrunner” as efforts to secure Deontay Wilder for an undisputed title fight continue to fail.
