Aubameyang clearly believes he'd stand a chance against the England forward and replied to the video joking he was 'disappointed' in Joshua.

Joshua did have to give it a hard thought but he eventually settled on Kane.
He said: "Ok, It's a difficult one still... but I think I'm going to go with Kane."
He also gave a verdict on what would happen if Jadon Sancho went toe to toe with Marcus Rashford.
The boxer voted for the latter in that contest and praised Rashford for being a homegrown talent that's succeeded at Manchester United.
The 30-year-old then joked about hoping his Watford side sign Rashford one day, although the chances of that seem unlikely.

Despite his body type and the fact he's a heavyweight, 'The Destroyer' has scary hand speed that many think will trouble 'AJ' once again.
It seems like Joshua took notice of how sharp Ruiz was looking too, as according to BBC Sport, the Olympic Gold medalist's smile disappeared from his face as he watched him go through his paces inside the squared circle.
Joshua, who has trimmed down half a stone for the rematch, says he has made changes that "will make it very difficult" for Ruiz.
Who do you think will win Joshua vs Ruiz Jr 2?
