The £45 million house the British world heavyweight champion called home whilst training for his victory against Wladimir Klitschko is available to rent - for £20,000 a week
Fancy living in the home fit for a heavyweight champion?
Having beaten Wladimir Klitschko in front of a crowd of 90,000 at Wembley, Anthony Joshua has packed his bags and moved back in with his mum in the flat he bought her in Golders Green.
Whilst in training for his bouts against the Ukrainian the Olympic gold medallist took up residence in this house in St John’s Wood that’s valued at £45 million.
The grand, Ambassadorial style house on Avenue Road clearly proved the perfect set up for the boxer.

With seven bedrooms to choose from he was sure to have felt well rested before the big fight, with the master suite alone weighing in at an impressive 1,500 sq ft.
We’re sure he must have set up his punchbag in the home gym, and the indoor pool must have seen many laps from the sportsman as he prepped for the match.

Relaxing in the steam room and salt grotto must have soothed his tired muscles, and we imagine he must have stocked up the home cinema with every one of the Rocky films to get himself psyched up.
The Watford born boxing star began his career in north London. His first amateur boxing debut was in the back room of the Boston Arms in Tufnell Park, and he won the Haringey Box Cup in 2009 and 2010.
So could you live in the house that helped make a champion?
Brace yourself for the punchline: it costs £20,000 a week to rent.
For most people that would be punching above their weight, but if you’ve got your eye on the prize (and deep pockets) then you could be a contender.
