Anthony Joshua receivied an early-morning visit from drug testers on Thursday, Daily Mail reports.He was brought back down to earth following his victory over Wladimir Klitschko.
On Thursday morning the Olympic gold medallist was reminded of the less glamorous side of the sport, when he was visited by drug testers at around 7am.
Heavyweight boxing has been rocked by a number of recent failed drugs tests, with both Alexander Povetkin and Andrzej Wawrzyk testing positive in the lead up to fights with WBC champion Deontay Wilder in the last couple of years.
Along with fellow Brit Tyson Fury, Wilder is one of a number of possible opponents for Joshua in the wake of his victory over Klitschko. But a rematch with the 41-year-old remains on the cards, too.
