Anthony Joshua splashes out on Ali memorabilia

CHAMP: Anthony Joshua hugs Tony Bellew after his recent win

INSTAGRAM POSTS by champion heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua show the results of a meaningful shopping spree by the 27 year-old, who bought a signed Muhammad Ali boxing glove encased in a light-up frame above a built-in television screen showing some of Ali's greatest victories in the ring.

Despite beating favourite Wladimir Klitschko, a record of no losses and much speculation about his enormous future earning potential, Joshua remains humble:

"Can I ever see a time that it will be Ali, Foreman, Holmes, Joshua? Nah...

HISTORY: Anthony Joshua posted this photo on his Instagram after receiving the memorabilia

"There are too many opinions now. They didn't give Klitschko the respect he deserves, you know what I mean. I just try and keep some distance from it and stay in my own lane.

"As long as I'm happy, that's what matters. I'm not perfect but what I do, I do good. I'll keep improving on it and if that's good enough to get me through in boxing, then I'll be satisfied. I know I can get better."
