The boxing world are waiting to hear news on Anthony Joshua’s next opponent after the dominant British heavyweight continued his unbeaten professional record by knocking down Dillian Whyte in December.
Tyson Fury? David Haye? Nah. What about a domestic showdown with Tottenham Hotspur hard man Eric Dier? He has been volunteered by teammate Dele Alli after this impressive work with the gloves!
Dier has been the rock-solid base of a Tottenham midfield in which Alli has also thrived to help Mauricio Pochettino’s side towards a surprise Premier League title challenge this season.
The 22-year-old loves a physical battle, but won’t be thanking Alli for the offer that he made to Joshua on Twitter! The Olympic champion responded, but Dier is rightfully wary of the consequences!
We think the real fight is between Dier and Alli though – to see who has the best social media banter! The Joshua challenge soon went off course in this brilliant Twitter exchange between the three lads.
