‘Spray the water evenly!’: Chael Sonnen claims Anthony Joshua staged his workout photos by pouring water on himself to make himself look sweaty
- Anthony Joshua shared some pictures from a workout on Friday
- The heavyweight looked to be working hard and covered in sweat
- However, Chael Sonnen believes everything was not as it seemed
Anthony Joshua took to social media to show he was putting in the work ahead of an expected rematch with Oleksandr Usyk but one onlooker wasn’t convinced.
Joshua posted two photos of himself during a workout on April 1 with the caption ‘April ain’t fooling me’.
The Brit looked to be sweating heavily but UFC legend Chael Sonnen believes h e was in fact fooling his millions of followers.
He retweeted AJ’s post, writing: ‘If you guys ever spray water on yourself for a photo shoot, spray the water EVENLY. Then get rid of the bottle!’.
Sonnen is no stranger to a controversial opinion and is one of the biggest trash talkers in the history of mixed martial arts.
An announcement around the date and venue for Joshua’s rematch with Usyk could come in the next fortnight, according to the Ukrainian’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk.
Joshua lost the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles to Usyk in September, when the unbeaten southpaw outpointed the Briton in north London.
‘AJ’ soon triggered a rematch clause to set up a second fight with Usyk, though a failed step-aside deal and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have both been hurdles in the journey to a rematch between the pair.
