Anthony Joshua Looks 'Significantly' Leaner In Latest Public Workout

Ahead of Anthony Joshua's eagerly anticipated fight against Joseph Parker on March 31, the WBA and IBF heavyweight world champion has been hitting the pads in a public workout with trainer Rob McCracken.

With just nine days until the bout at Cardiff's Principality Stadium, speculation surrounding the weight of Anthony Joshua has been rife. He recently refused to confirm if he will weigh-in lighter against Parker, saying:

"I'm not going to say because, last time I said that, I came in at my career-heaviest. I'm not going to jinx it. Whether I'm bigger than I was for Takam, or lighter than I was for Dominic Breazeale, I will make sure I am victorious." he said via Sky Sports.

With his weight up in the air as fight-night looms, many have suggested that Joshua looks a lot leaner in his public workout with McCracken and you have to agree with the people.

If you compare his physique to his previous bout, when he defended his titles against Carlos Takam, plenty have noted that he looks 'leaner', 'faster' and 'sharper' as he works the pads.

Do you think he looks slimmer?

Plenty in the comments section sounded off their opinion. A YouTube user said: "A.J looking slimmer" while another wrote: "Looking trim, looking fast, great footwork and maintaining defensive approach after hitting the pads looking good."

Here are some other opinions from the above clip:
