Man-mountain AJ’s incredible rise from streets to superstardom is ‘perfect’ for big screen
BOXING ace Anthony Joshua’s life should be made into a Hollywood blockbuster, starstruck fans have demanded.
His rags-to-riches tale from the streets of Watford to world heavyweight champ would be meat and gravy for film execs, they say.
Joshua, 28, stunned the world and got 90,000 fans at Wembley on their feet when he floored legend Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday night.
It was near the iconic stadium that the young ‘AJ’ would pound the streets after moving with doting mum Yeta to Golders Green in the capital.
Joshua himself has said that his life was “f***ed before boxing”, the Daily Star reported — and is now aiming to become a £billion boxer.

After pocketing a cool £15m from the epic 11-round KO bout, the man-mountain is set to continue his meteoric rise to superstardom.
And now calls are being made to tell his tale on the big screen.
Jnr tweeted: “This Anthony Joshua story looks like a movie in my eyes.”
Another fan Kyle wrote: “Bro that was back and forth like a Rocky movie.”
And after spotting Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarzenegger in the crowd another said: “This has got to be a movie. Arnie’s here!”
Hours after the fight Joshua cemented himself as a fan favourite by calling out boxing badboy Tyson Fury, who responded: “Challenge accepted. Let’s dance”.
But he may have to go through a dozen more rounds with Klitschko once more after the Ukranian said he’d love a rematch.
