How hard does Anthony Joshua hit? Fucking hard. Just ask his 18 opponents, not to mention this video where he breaks a punching machine. Yes, you read that right.

Ahead of Joshua's world title unification fight with former heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko, we take a trip down memory lane by reliving the moment he broke a punching machine.

The IBF champion and good-mate Troy Deeney were tasked with who could punch the machine the hardest. The Watford skipper has followed Joshua's journey closely, and here he was going one-on-one with him.

Being the pro, Joshua stepped up to the plate first. He delivered a BIG right-hand, notching a 797 score.

The Watford frontman then nailed the machine with a decent looking right-hand generating a score of 757.

Round 2.

The Watord-native then took a second swing. He hit the machine so hard, it failed to register a score. The power of Joshua, ladies and gentleman. Check out the footage below:

Meanwhile, in just over a month, the Olympic gold medalist will come face-to-face with Klitschko in front of a British record attendance. Over 90,000 fans will flock to Wembley Stadium to witness one of the biggest events of the sporting calendar.

(Who you got?!)

As well as his IBF title, the vacant WBA belt is also up for grabs. And leading up to his biggest professional test, the 27-year-old looks in phenomenal shape.

April 29th can't come soon enough!
