Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic warmed up with Anthony Joshua backstage ahead of his huge bout with Carlos Takam in Cardiff.
Joshua pretended to throw a martial arts kick at Ibrahimovic, as the pair shared jokes with Sky Sports boxing expert and former WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew at the Principality Stadium.
Bellew told Sky Sports: "We had a quick joke and Anthony asked me 'has Zlatan scored against Everton'?
"I said no and if he does, there's going to be a problem. Zlatan said 'Anthony is me so the rest is nonsense'. I was happy to see him as a big supporter of Anthony's."
Joshua also shared a photograph on his social media of Ibrahimovic passing him his boxing gloves as he laced up before the fight, along with the caption "when lions meet".
