Anthony Joshua has shown he can handle himself in the boxing ring, but the world heavyweight champion has now taken on a very different challenge by spending two days in the wild with Bear Grylls.

In ‘Bear’s Mission with Anthony Joshua’ the unified world heavyweight champion takes on all that mother nature has to offer after being dropped on one of the UK’s wildest and most iconic coastlines.

The ITV show sees Anthony embrace the great British outdoors, taking on challenges unlike anything he has had to conquer before as the pair camp out under the stars.

Grylls said: ‘Taking a home-grown legend like AJ on such an iconic British journey was such a privilege. I’ve had many incredible times with celebrities on Mission Survive, so the chance to take AJ on an adventure was always going to be special. 

‘Bear’s Mission with… works so well because we get to see celebrities uncovered, and hear their triumphs and failures, their struggles and motivations, all wrapped around a great journey.’  

Joshua has not fought since his impressive victory over Wladimir Klitschko in May but is already penciled in to take on Kubrat Pulev in Cardiff on October 28.

As part of his training camp AJ shared a compilation workout video with his 4.2 million Instagram followers during which he engaged in a number of exercises. 

The 27-year-old wrote that he was working ‘mind and muscle’ at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, as he prepares for the bout with Pulev at the Principality Stadium.
