He was getting in his element there. I’m glad he’s not in the Games because he would give me a bit of a challenge. He was dancing man, he’s got the moves
The four athletes got to shoot hoops with the Hollywood star. Joshua also got to teach Will Smith some of his skills with a bit of boxing.
Will said: “Basketball is fun but I love boxing. When I did ‘Ali’ – as every actor does when they play a boxer – I was like, ‘Hey, I can do this professionally’. I really love the art of boxing.
“I had a little taste of the peak physical condition athletes have to be in during ‘Ali’. I’ve never considered myself an athlete. I put my hand on his [Johsua’s] back and it was like stone! I was like, ‘I gotta stay friends with this dude.’”
Joshua was equally impressed by the 43-year-old’s footwork.
He said: “He was getting in his element there. I’m glad he’s not in the Games because he would give me a bit of a challenge. He was dancing man, he’s got the moves.”
