sport news Joshua takes fans inside the 'humble' Sheffield flat where he lives in camp

Anthony Joshua may be the big-money star of British boxing - but the world heavyweight champion is still a man of simple pleasures during training camp.

While the likes of Floyd Mayweather love to flaunt their fleet of flashy cars and mansions, Joshua prefers a more 'humble' life in the weeks before fight night.

The IBF, WBO and WBA heavyweight king is currently preparing for his US debut in New York against Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller on June 1.

As he has since before taking gold at London 2012, AJ is putting in the grind in Sheffield, where he trains at the GB boxing base alongside the stars of tomorrow.

This week, he gave fans an insight into his life during training as he did his own version of MTV's hit show 'Cribs' and gave viewers a tour of his 'humble abode'.

'This is where it goes down,' Joshua says in the as he welcomes the cameras into his home.

There is some room for state-of-the-art technology, however. Joshua shows off a special chair where he uses his 'NormaTec' compression kit, a 'pulse recovery system' which helps athletes recharge in between workouts.
