The heavyweight champion says if he were to be any footballer, he'd like to be the Real Madrid star

Given the pick of the world's footballing elite, heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua would choose to be Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Joshua, a Watford fan, was asked which footballer he'd like to be, to which he responded the Real Madrid star. 

He is also seemingly part of the 'Wenger Out' brigade, saying: "It seems Wenger out, that's all I'm hearing right now. There's even a track on it!"

It's not the first time in recent weeks which the combat sport has crossed over into the footballing world, with Floyd 'Money' Mayweather seen spending time with €222 million Paris Saint-Germain signing Neymar in the build up for his super-fight with Conor McGregor. 

In the same video, godfather of grime Wiley tips Leicester to be relegated from the Premier League and says he'd like to be Manchester City and Brazil forward Gabriel Jesus.
