ANTHONY JOSHUA has revealed that his toughest fight of the 2012 London Olympics was against his own urges – as stunning athletes from around the world flocked to the UK.

With less than five years in the sport, AJ won gold in the final act of the iconic home Games.

Joshua put the cherry on the cake of Super Saturday – when Jessica Ennis-Hill, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah all struck gold within just 44 minutes of each other – by grabbing the super-heavy title.

But the fun loving 30-year-old admits – in a hilarious interview with Apple Music – that one of his toughest fights of the campaign was against his primal urges.

Surrounded by a stunning bevvie of women from all over the world, the 6ft 6in hunk somehow managed to hold it together to secure top spot on the podium.

Because I am a party man and I wanted to throw a party with those Jamaican girls, Swedish girls, all those different countries!

The reigning WBA, IBF and WBO belt-holder told Apple Music: “A good memory for me was just all the different countries being in one place. 

“Because I am a party man and I wanted to throw a party with those Jamaican girls, Swedish girls, all those different countries! I was like ‘wow this is amazing’”.

“And it was in my hometown of London so it was just an amazing time.”

The home Games were dubbed the ‘randiest in history’ with a whopping 150,000 condoms handed out to keep the super-fit athletes safe.

The boys and girls in Beijing four years earlier only needed 100,000 so Joshua was part of the squad that needed extra, extra protection.

Around 17,000 world class athletes, in peak physical condition, were packed into the East London apartments for two weeks of hard work and hard partying, for some.

But AJ remembers shunning the stunners and the late nights to kickstart an incredible pro career.

Joshua recalled: “The annoying thing about being in the athletes village was that I boxed on the last day of the whole two weeks. 

“So I knew people who had one a gold medal on the third day and were then just allowed to walk around loving life while I was still doing running and physio. 

“I had to stay focused, it was annoying but it was all for the love of boxing.”
