Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua sparred with boxing guru Seb Eubanks in a make-shift boxing ring on top of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai on Wednesday. The workout was staged on the iconic building’s helipad, and dubbed ‘the world’s highest boxing ring,’ demonstrating Anthony taking to great heights to urge people to get active, his social media channels said. Joshua sported white shorts in the training session against the city’s panoramic backdrop with 26 year-old Eubanks, son of British former boxing legend Chris Eubanks. The stunt is the latest in a series of outside workouts performed around Dubai by the WBA and IBF heavyweight to promote fitness as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge, a 30-day initiative urging people do 30 minutes of daily activity for 30 consecutive days. Alongside a cast of celebrities including former Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand, Joshua led a workout at Dubai Festival City for the closing weekend of the fitness challenge last Saturday.
