How hard does Anthony Joshua hit? Very hard. Just ask his 22 opponents, not to mention this video where he breaks a punching machine.
The WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO 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.
The Watford-native then took a second swing. He hit the machine so hard, it failed to register a score. Just utterly ridiculous power on display, and you can only imagine the impact when his fists come flying into your chin in between the ropes.
Following his career-making victory over the legendary Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley, 'AJ' appeared on Graham Norton and had another run-in with a punching machine.
Dressed in a sharp white shirt and black suit pants, he annihilates the machine and posts a score of 848.
Not bad at all from the Olympic Gold medalist. Joshua is celebrating his 29th birthday today and folks on social media have been wishing the champ well.

We imagine he's spending his day leathering punching machines as he prepares for his next bout - which could well be against the winner of December's WBC world title championship fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury in Los Angeles.
Here's to many more years of Joshua doing the absolute business in the ropes, in front of packed stadiums..
