ANTHONY JOSHUA is feeling nostalgic after showing off images of his incredible transformation from ten years ago.
The heavyweight champion had only taken up boxing just one year prior to the 2008 pictures, proving his incredible rise in the sport.
AJ’s amateur career kicked off in 2009 by winning the Haringey Boxing Cup and he hasn’t looked back since.
The 30-year-old uploaded snaps that show his skinny frame in training at his first boxing club – Finchley ABC in North London.
He is also sparring and posing for pictures alongside the first trophies he won as an amateur.
