Anthony Joshua was seen barging into a students flat after receiving abuse during his time at Loughborough University.

The Olympic champion - bidding to avenge his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk - was seen on footage confronting a group of people after Tyson Fury and weak jaw taunts.

Joshua said: "Remember you're running your mouth, because when I bring people up here and I start cracking your glass jaws, none of you will like it. "When your jaws start breaking and people start chasing you out of this uni, none of you will like it. "Watch your mouths because you don't know who you're talking to sometimes. I know, listen, all that public eye bulls**t, I ain't into all that." Derek Chisora - who is under Anthony Joshua's 258 MGT - is returning to action this summer in a rematch against Kubrat Pulev - a fighter Joshua knocked out in 2020. The former British champion spoke to talkSPORT and said had he been in the same situation, it would not have ended nicely.

"I would have done much worse," said Chisora. "No, I wouldn't have taken my shoes off. I would have smashed the whole house up. I'd have robbed them afterwards as well," the 38-year-old heavyweight said in a tongue-in-cheek comment. "Nobody shouts abuse at me, mate. I give it."

Eddie Hearn was also asked about Joshua speaking to the students and defended the former unified heavyweight king.

"People criticise AJ sometimes. You can't have it both ways. Sometimes they say 'Oh, you're too corporate. Too Mr. Nice Guy.' Then, all of a sudden, when he does that it's 'Woah, what's that! Oh, you're showing your real side.' "You've got to understand, this is a young man from the estate who's changed his life through boxing. He's achieved a huge amount," Hearn added.
