Two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will be getting in the ring with Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday, September 25, but he recently spoke of almost getting into another fight with Jay-Z.
According to what Joshua told William Hill, per the Daily Mail, he saw the Brooklyn rapper at a Will Smith film premiere in 2013, grabbed his hand and asked for a photo. It was a move that seemed to anger Jay, and Joshua thought he was going to get punched right there.
"So imagine, you know, those lovely houses that are like mansion houses and they’ve got a stairway in the middle and they depart around left and right and they come back? Pure opulence," he described. "I was at this big premiere and it was one of those big staircases and I was in the top left ... And I saw Jay-Z walk in ... As he come up, I was kind of like ‘Jay, do you mind if I get a picture?’"
"And he kind of looked at my hand, yeah, like, ‘Boy, I will bust your head if you don’t get off my hand,'" added Joshua. "But it was just one of those things where I just gave the guy the camera. And in that picture, I think it’s one of the first pictures on my Instagram. Jay-Z has just got a plain face and there’s me with a big smile."
The photo above is the one that Joshua was talking about.
