Heavyweight boxer, Anthony Joshua, has gotten people talking online after he flirted up a storm with sports presenter, Laura Woods, during a live interview.
Joshua claimed another victory following his fight with American opponent Franklin on Saturday, this time by the unanimous decision of the judges.
Following his victory, Joshua was in a particularly relaxed mood in his dressing room when Laura, 35, went to interview him in the stead of iFL’s co-founder Kugan Cassius, who usually conducts the interview.
The boxer was clearly interested in Laura and fixed his gaze on her throughout their cosy chat, with the two sitting beside each other on the sofa with barely an inch between them.
Joshua first complimented her career progress so far and said it has ‘blossomed amazingly just like her’. He then proceeded to ask her more questions about herself and her personal life.
Laura was also smitten by the Nigerian boxer and used the opportunity to ask who his dream date would be, to which he confessed that she is his dream date.
She responded excitedly to this, prompting Anthony to ask about her relationship status: ‘Are you taken? Are you in a relationship?’ and she confirmed she was single.
Joshua also revealed that he is single and went on to explain why he is not in a committed relationship, prompting Laura to say they ‘have so much in common’
The interview has stirred mixed reactions on social media as many pointed out the glaring chemistry between Laura and Anthony.
A fan wrote; “She wants the D”
Another commented on social media: ‘I have never watched such a sexually heated interview with Laura and AJ before deep it. Look at how much space there is in the couch and she’s up in his grill. He even spread his legs so their thighs are touching.’
‘The way he is looking at Laura , she is his celebrity crush at the moment,’ another added.
