The Only Time Anthony Joshua Lost His Head And Had To Be Separated During Intense Face Off
Anthony Joshua's a cool and humble character but he did lose his head once when he fought Dominic Breazeale in his first world title defence back in 2016.
Joshua began his first reign as world champion by defending his IBF title against Breazeale and the pair had an intense build-up to their world title clash.
They were involved in a heated pre-fight press conference with Joshua and Breazeale then exchanging words in a fiery face off.
"Don't push up on me!" An angry Joshua said to Breazeale who continued to bicker in his face. Check out the head-to-head below.
Joshua went on to beat Breazeale in stunning style. He stopped the American challenger in the seventh round to defend his IBF title.
The 30-year-old has since become a two-time heavyweight world champion after recapturing the titles against Andy Ruiz Jr.

And he's hoping to land a fight against WBC holder Deontay Wilder who holds the belt he needs to become undisputed champion.
After February 22nd there will be no more unanswered questions. I will finish what I started, and this time @Tyson_Fury will not be getting up off that canvas so quickly. I've proven myself time and time again and I will do it again in February. #WilderFury2 pic.twitter.com/GkYSzNCBAU

When asked which of his heavyweight rivals he would prefer to face next, the Brit said: "I really don't know. Either one of them, it doesn't matter.
"The preference would be the champion Wilder because it's a championship fight, but Fury is so talented as well and it's the best of British so why not? I'll fight either one of them.
"The dream would be to go for the fifth belt in 2020."
Joshua gained revenge over Ruiz Jr earlier this month, and he spoke about his shock loss in June.
"I feel that if you always look back you can always find a reason as to why you could have done things better, but honestly, I just got beaten by the better man," he added.
"I have to take it on the chin and do it better next time."
