Telegraph Sport

Anthony Joshua was given a surprise good luck message this week when Dr Dre rang the heavyweight boxer ahead of Saturday's heavyweight fight with Wladimir Klitschko.

Joshua, of course, is an ambassador for Beats by Dr. Dre. You can watch the pair share their pre-fight video call above.

How the conversation went:

Dre: What’s up brother, you good? Wish you good luck man. You know what I gotta tell you, right now you’re one of my favourite fighters man

AJ: You’re one of my favourite musicians, straight outta Compton, the film you did, unbelievable, what you’ve been doing, still grinding. How’s the gym going? You still banging weights?

Dre: Yeah right after this, I was out with some friends last night in the studio and we were looking into some of your highlights man, the most popular saying is “oh s--t” 

AJ: That’s what I just said when I saw you on the phone, I was like oh s--t. 

Dre: Good luck this Saturday man, you probably won’t need it. Thank you for everything you’re doing with Beats.
