Anthony Joshua gives wads of cash to young kids waiting to meet him

Anthony Joshua gives wads of cash to young kids waiting to meet him

Anthony Joshua has been seen handing out wads of cash to crowds of kids on his old estate.

The former world heavyweight champion of the world returned to the Meriden Estate in Watford to surprise some young fans with some money and presents.

In a video posted to Instagram Live, the 32-year-old can be seen surrounded by a large group of children, who all look incredibly excited to see him.

I mean, he is Anthony Joshua, so it's not exactly hard to see why, is it?

The kids can be seen queuing up as Joshua hands out notes from a bundle of cash, appearing to give them one each.

In another video, which was captioned 'it's only right', the boxer seems to be helping donate an electric scooter to one of the kids.

It's a far cry from the confrontation Joshua had with a group of students who tried to give him some s**t a few months ago.

Ahead of his long-awaited rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, a group from Loughborough University called the Brit out as he walked past.

And it's safe to say that he was having absolutely none of it.

In a video posted on social medial, Joshua can be seen heading into their block to have a little word. Gulp.

After pressing the buzzer to the flat and being let up, Joshua calmly addressed the students' heckling.

In the video, Joshua can be heard saying: "Remember you’re running your mouth because when I bring people up here and I start cracking your glass jaws, none of you will like it.

"When your jaw starts breaking, people start chasing you out of this uni, none of you will like it. Watch your mouths because you don’t know who you’re talking to sometimes."

The boxer also added he's not into all the 'public eye bulls**t'.

A witness to the Loughborough students' heckling of Joshua and the boxer's response explained the group probably hadn't 'expected him [Joshua] to retaliate', and that they don't think the group will be 'doing something like that again'.

One person reflected: "Lots of profanity and abusive language was chucked at him while the students hid in an upstairs window. They picked on the wrong man. They should be more careful."

I mean, you just don't go mouthing off to one of the hardest men on the planet, do you?

A lesson learned, I think.
