Amanda Holden has jokingly warned Tyson Fury to not damage Anthony Joshua’s ‘pretty face’ – or else she will kill him!
The WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion joined the 49-year-old on her Heart radio show on Thursday morning alongside co-presenter Jamie Theakston.
Joshua has joined a host of radio and television shows across the nation to promote his new collaboration with Hugo Boss.
Anthony Joshua could always use Amanda Holden for protection against Tyson Fury
However, for all his commercial interests, the world is still waiting to see Joshua take on WBC heavyweight champion Fury and crown a new undisputed world champion.
As the Londoner talked up a potential battle of Britain, Holden joked: “Look after that pretty face or I’ll kill him myself.”
AJ could be seen giggling after the compliment as the clip was posted on social media, as the two continued their flirty banter.
Theakston desperately attempted to get the interview back on track, goading the fighter: “Can you beat him?”

But Britain’s Got Talent judge Holden was too quick to interject, enthusiastically shouting, ‘Of course he can!’, before giggling that she ‘feels like his manager today’.
The 30-year-old responded: “I was just telling my manager he’s sacked and you’re now my manager.”
The Olympic gold medallist has continued his war of words with ‘The Gypsy King’ ever since details of their two-fight agreement emerged.
Joshua recently told GQ Middle East: “Being world champion, with all those knockouts, you do feel kind of unstoppable.

“But realistically, in boxing terms, I’m way ahead of where I should be. I’m working at such a quick pace. I shouldn’t even be in a position where I’m mentioned in Tyson Fury’s era.
“He’s five or six years ahead of me in terms of turning professional. In fact, when he was turning pro, I was just putting on my gloves for the first time.”
