Anthony Joshua hails the Portuguese winger as the best in world football.

The heavyweight champion is a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and he has explained why he is consistently motivated by the top forward. Ahead of his crucial bout against Kubray Pulev, the English boxer revealed certain spectacular practices by his idol to Copa 90.

“He’s the don. It’s just the little things he does. He will train by himself afterwards to work on what he wants to do on the pitch.

“I was speaking to Rio Ferdinand who said he was the only one in the team that had masseuses, nutritionists and psychologists so he had the desire.”

We can make mention of CR7’s activities with Herbalife, Nike training club and then his sessions with sleep coach Nick Littlehales as a vivid expression of his off the pitch training traits. As a result, that has defined his rise from a young ambitious lad at Sporting Lisbon to the enviable trophy laden career he has achieved at Manchester United and Real Madrid.

So for the undefeated boxing champion, it’s fair enough to elect the 32-year-old super celebrity as an idol. As they both lie in the astute pool of opulence, there’s more for Joshua to learn from the boss.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo fans are set to witness the iconic number 7 in action on Wednesday, September 13 as he leads Real Madrid in their UEFA Champions League title defense against APOEL Nicosia at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
