Anthony Joshua knocked out Robert Helenius in his latest fight and the former two-time heavyweight champion enjoyed some of McGregor’s stout moments after the win.

Anthony Joshua has been slammed by Carl Froch after drinking Conor McGregor’s stout just moments after his recent win.

‘AJ’ made up for a timid display against Robert Helenius in London earlier this month by landing a one-punch knockout in the seventh round. Joshua was cruising his way to a points win but his performance drew boos from fans, but he silenced critics to brutally floor Helenius with a right hand to pick up his first stoppage win in almost three years.

UFC legend McGregor was ringside for the fight and he gave Joshua a sip of his Forged Irish Stout after the Brit jumped out of the ring following his win. But now-retired former world champion Froch has slammed Joshua in a new rant by labelling him unprofessional for his actions.

“How unprofessional is that? AJ jumps out the ring, bit disrespectful as well. Helenius is receiving medical attention, he jumps out the ring. Ok fair play, go and see your dad, your family, you’ve just won a fight. You’re a bit nervous and you wanted to get the victory and there’s a lot of pressure on you, but don’t go over the Conor McGregor who is trying to steal the show,” Froch said on his YouTube channel.

“He had all swellings under his eyes, his nose was p***ing with blood, his mouth was all bleeding, as we saw when he jumped out of the ring which was a bit strange, he had a slurp of that nasty Irish stout that Conor McGregor shoved into his face. He had all blood and snot and sweat inside that pint.

On McGregor, Froch added: “Making a really expensive suit look very cheap because he looks like a scruffy b******. Standing around at ringside shouting b****** trying to be the centre of attention. He (AJ) shouldn’t have drunk that stout. Very unprofessional from Anthony Joshua.”

Joshua is expected to fight Deontay Wilder next as ‘The Bronze Bomber’ outlined a two-fight plan that would see them fight in Saudi Arabia and Africa. Froch doesn’t think it would be smart for Joshua to fight Wilder next as he added: “Do not fight Wilder in your next fight because you will get absolutely knocked sparko. If you’re doing it for the money take the money, fair enough, but keep yourself safe.”
