Unified Heavyweight Champion, Anthony Joshua has picked sides on who will win in between the two greatest football rivalries, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in a boxing contest.

Ronaldo and Messi have been rivals at the pinnacle of the footballing world for the best part of a decade - sharing the last nine Ballon d'Or awards between them. But while Barcelona's Messi leads the way in that department, winning five to Ronaldo's four, Joshua believes the 32-year old Real Madrid star would have the edge over Lionel Messi in the boxing ring.

According to the boxer, he believes Ronaldo will win because of the Real Madrid superstar's superior physical condition.

Joshua told YouTube channel COPA90: 'Messi's got that ruggedness but Ronaldo looks like he's got the Bruce Lee - bang!

'You know what I mean, just stand there and lick you with one hook and you're finished. Messi seems a bit more like his name... messy and rugged.' 

Do believe so fams?
