David Beckham welcomes Anthony Joshua at Inter Miami as he tries to turn MLS newbies into heavyweight title challengers

ANTHONY JOSHUA paid a visit to former England captain David Beckham as the heavyweight champ enjoys himself in Miami.

The WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO title holder is currently Stateside as he waits to discover where his £200million unification fight with Tyson Fury will take place.

The two heavyweight stars have already penned their contracts for the showdown, with Wembley now re-emerging as a potential venue to host it.

AJ has left all the negotiating behind for Eddie Hearn to finalise to head across the Atlantic.

And he has decided to spend some of his time in the Sunshine State of Florida with Manchester United legend Becks.

Goldenballs appeared to be giving the boxing star a tour around his new pride and joy – his Inter Miami football team.

Beckham, 45, posed for a snap with Joshua on the pitch of the Inter Miami CF Stadium in Fort Lauderdale and wasted no time in sharing it on Instagram.

He captioned it with: “So happy to have the champ in town… WELCOME TO MIAMI.”

Whether or not AJ is still in town for the start of the MLS season next month remains to be seen.

However he has been doing a lot more than just enjoying the weather while in the US.


This week he joined American singer Pharrell Williams in visiting and speaking to students at The David Grutman Experience: The Class, hosted by the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management.

According to FIU News, Watford-born Joshua spoke about how perseverance and loyalty help to form a successful person as he urged students, “Never let success get to your head and never let failure get to your heart.”

He also added: “It’s okay to fail. We can’t be afraid of it.

“Failing is a way to grow and a lesson that shows you how not to fall the next time.”

Miami is a big favourite with the Brit boxer and he has previously spent time in a luxury mansion out there.

He even spent part of the build-up to his first match with Andy Ruiz Jr in it.

AJ provided a glimpse into the property in an episode of his YouTube vlog, titled Miami Camp.

He was seen entering the mansion through the entrance hall which boasted large chandeliers, pillars and open-plan living spaces.

It also had a huge garage, pool, and barbecue area in the large garden

Joshua then took viewers into the master bedroom, which has a private balcony.
