After the scrap, as AJ’s family and friends came to terms with the defeat, his dad Robert appeared furious inside the ring.

With Hearn being roundly booed by the Madison Square Garden crowd while providing an interview to Sky Sports, Robert attempted to charge towards the promoter.

Joshua, 29, noticed his reaction and was forced to hold him back before anything escalated.

It did not go unnoticed by fans who were quick to comment on social media.

One said: “What was going on with Joshua’s dad and Hearn, he was having a right go at him. AJ was saying something to his dad, all very strange.”

Another added: “I want to know what Joshua’s dad was saying to Eddie Hearn post fight, he looked incensed.”

A third added: “Joshua’s dad having a proper go at Hearn.”

My dad’s upset, which is a natural reaction.

It remains unclear as to why his dad almost flew off the rails but it is clear something is not right in the camp behind the scenes.

Joshua did comment on his dad’s reaction following the fight but didn’t give anything away.

He said: “My dad’s upset, which is a natural reaction; my mum’s cool, she doesn’t come to the boxing and separates it.

“Everyone’s in good spirits; losing isn’t a good night but it’s something we can learn from.

“My dad said ‘Tighten up and get smart; when things are going good nothing’s going wrong, then something bad happens, you realise’.”

Joshua was knocked to the canvas on four separate occasions before the fight was eventually stopped in the seventh round.

He said: “AJ got sloppy and he never recovered. It was a beautiful combination in the third round that put him down.

“He was in total control of the fight then he got sloppy, got caught and never recovered.

“He looked flat at times, he got hit on the top of the head and he will learn a lot from this.

“Tonight belongs to Andy Ruiz and it is a massive upset but AJ will be back.

“It is a very big upset and now we will find out what AJ is about and it will be a big rematch in the UK.”

Just In: Aisha Buhari Drops Another Bombshell

The Wife of the President, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has advised the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to consider only its card-carrying members for political appointments.

She made the call at a dinner to celebrate the victory of her husband in Daura, the country-home of the president in Katsina state.

Held at the Daura Stadium, the event attracted women and youth supporters of the APC from across the state.

The president’s wife, in a statement by her media aide, Suleiman Haruna, noted that the constitution of the party specifies that appointments to offices in an APC-led government should go to card-carrying members.

She therefore advised that the party constitution should be respected.

She expressed appreciation over the support that the party enjoyed in the last Presidential election, especially from women and youth and assured them that government will do more to improve their lives.

“I wish to thank the women and youth of this country for the number of votes they gave President Buhari in the 2019 election and to assure that he will continue to do his best to make Nigeria a better country,” she said.
