Anthony Joshua Takes On Arcade Hammer Game And Lets Everyone Down

World heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua faced his first public loss after taking on Dame Judi Dench in a test of strength:

The boxer was left blushing after appearing on The Graham Norton Show alongside Dench, Inbetweeners star Greg Davies, and actors Noomi Rapace and Kenneth Branagh.

The 6"6' athlete took on an arcade hammer challenge and, despite looking to make a powerful swing, missed the target.

Comedian Greg Davies, who even manages to tower over Joshua, was up next with the hammer and gave it enough welly to ring the bell.

Dame Dench, 84, stepped up next to put the final nail in the coffin of the boxer's winning streak.

The James Bond star, with the help of Davies, had a crack and took a solid score of 20.

The unbeaten champion is expected to officially announce his next bout soon after promoter Eddie Hearn made offers to Dillian Whyte and fellow Brit Tyson Fury.

American fighter Jarrell Miller is also reported to be on the shortlist but doesn't think he'll get the chance until later in the year.

Miller said: "He can come to America, maybe September.

"I think that's the closest I can see us fighting right now. We're going to prepare for everything and we're open to all options."
