ANTHONY JOSHUA has started 2021 with a bang by showing off his devastating punch power in the gym.
The unified heavyweight champion is already training for a potential fight for the ages against long-time rival Tyson Fury.

Footage showed AJ on the pads, working on his jab, one-two combination and putting emphasis on a big left hook to the body.
It comes with Joshua braced for a double-header of fights with British rival Fury to determine who will be crowned undisputed king.
And while his sole focus is adding the Gypsy King's WBC belt to his collection, AJ can't help but look towards the future.
He told Sky Sports: "This isn't the start of my career. I'm coming towards the end of my career.
"I'm not someone who lives in the moment and thinks that everything is just like for now.
"I'm always planning ahead so I'm coming towards the end of my career.
"Five years left and that's basically an Olympic cycle.
"I've got an Olympic cycle and a little bit more left, so when you see the next Olympics happen is when I'll be coming to the end of my career and the next generation will be coming through."
Joshua, 31, and Fury, 32, are still in talks for a proposed double header, that could total £500million.
But with the UK hit with further coronavirus restrictions, promoter Eddie Hearn admitted the Battle of Britain could be hitting the road.
Hearn told the Mail: "Even before this current situation there was no guarantee we would do the first fight in the UK because it was almost impossible we would get clearance to have, say, 90,000 at Wembley in late May.
"Now it is far, far more likely that it will be abroad.
"There have been a lot of conversations between both sides in the past couple of weeks and we’re optimistic that we can tie up stuff in the next fortnight."
