ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC stopped in need of difficult world heavyweight king Anthony Joshua to a combat…
However he did provide to show the IBA and IBF king some Bruce Lee kung-fu abilities!
Manchester United hero Ibrahimovic was on the Principality Stadium to see Joshua efficiently defend his titles in opposition to courageous Carlos Takam.
It was the Londoner’s 20th straight knockout victory after the 10th spherical stoppage.
Afterwards Ibrahimovic – nicely on the street to restoration from cruciate ligament surgical procedure – gave his ideas on Joshua.
The Swedish ahead is aware of about combating: he’s a black belt in taekwondo.

Ibrahimovic was asked about taking on the British boxer, but Zlatan laughed off the question.
He did, though, offer to teach Joshua how to become Bruce Lee!
BLOOD AND BUTTS Anthony Joshua suffered suspected broken nose before beating Carlos Takam by TKO in 10th round
Lee was an iconic martial artist who sadly died at the age of 32 in 1973.
Asked how much money it would take for him to fight Joshua in the ring, Ibrahimovic replied:
“I would not fight Joshua. I can only learn from him – but if he wants to learn some Bruce Lee skills, I can learn him.”
Ibrahimovic, 35, would like to see Joshia take on American Deontay Wilder next.
“Go over to America, get the knockout and say ‘is that all you’ve got’ and just come back,” he said.
Takam, 36, who stepped in at 12 days notice following an injury to Kubrat Pulev, had blood pouring into his eye from the fourth round onwards.
He was twice inspected by ringside medics before the end came.
Ibrahimovic agreed with the stoppage. “The Frenchman gave a good fight,” he added.
“I thought it would be faster but the other guy did a good job.

“The referee is there to protect both the fighters – the guy was getting a beating. The referee knows better than 80,000 people who just wanted to see a knockout.”
