Anthony Joshua is hoping to see everyone from Beyonce and Jay-Z, to a selection of his favourite Instagram models to watch him ringside in Saudi Arabia for his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr.

The 29-year-old heavyweight revealed he has a dream list of celebrities he hopes can witness him avenge the first loss of his professional career in December.

He told TMZ Sports: “Barack Obama, The Rock, Will Smith, Jay-Z, Beyonce … some Instagram models … I’m getting to the fantasy part of my brain now!

“Everyone and anyone is welcome!”

He added: “I took my first L as a professional and started realizing, yo, there’s people out there who are REALLY rooting for me, feeling emotionally, who really want me to win.”

“And, now mentally, I know I don’t just fight for myself. I fight for the nation, I fight for the continents, I fight for the people who love boxing. So, it’s just more than that.”

While it is yet to be seen which stars accept his invitation, some fans won’t be able to join them in the arena owing to Saudi Arabia’s shocking human rights record.

AJ also revealed this week that one person that has been randomly phoning him, but instead of asking for tickets, Tyson Fury has been telling him that he is going to “knock him out”.

But the Olympian, who has already promised to be smaller and smarter to ensure he regains his world heavyweight crown, dismissed talk of a Battle of Britain to TMZ.

He said: “I’m going to have to rewind, speaking about what next is some of the issues that I faced, so I’m just going to focus on fighting the champion.

“I’m fighting Andy Ruiz, who is a great fighter, so that’s where my focus is.

“As much as I want to just backfire and put that ego in front like, “(Fury) said that, what!”, I’m going to keep my cool and focus on the fight ahead with Andy Ruiz.”
