World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua has cheekily denied having an affair with Faryal, the estranged wife of fellow British boxer Amir Khan.
The couple had been embroiled in a bitter online spat over their impending divorce and, in a fit of anger and jealousy, Khan had dragged Joshua into the matter and tweeted that the Nigerian-born boxer could have his 'leftovers'.
"So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I'm currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best," former world light welterweight champion Khan, 30, tweeted at the beginning of a rant.
"Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer 🙄 @anthonyfjoshua.
"Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I'm not hurt but another fighter. I'm making it public. You getting the divorce #Golddigger.
"Mans like Joshua can have my left overs!"
Joshua, 27, lightheartedly protested his innocence, tweeting a video of the 2000 pop classic by Jamaican superstar Shaggy 'It Wasn't Me'.
He then added later: "Bantz aside, I hope you guys can resolve your situation or this is a hack as we have never even met! Plus I like my women BBW #ItWasntMe."Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
