- Anthony Joshua and Israel Adesanya braved the crazy hot sauce challenge
- World champs faced questions and eating spicy chicken wings in hilarious game
Both were nervous to try the sauces and AJ even pretended to dip his wings in it.
Anthony Joshua may well be one of the most fearsome heavyweights on the planet but even he didn’t fancy his chances up against some of the spiciest sauces on the shelves.
The unified world champion went head to head with UFC star Israel Adesanya in a crazy hot sauce challenge.
In the hilarious video, AJ and Adesanya had to answer some fairly hard-hitting questions truthfully or face taking a bite out of a chicken wing dabbed in one of three hot sauces varying in intensity.
The Brit escaped the first round unscathed after giving his opinion on becoming professional boxers for one fight and getting multi-million pound paydays.
‘The thing that annoys me the most is there is so much talent from the grassroots level who are trying to get their name recognised by the bigger audience and they’re struggling so it’s kind of a world of who is popular and who can just do it versus who is talented and who is trying to get their name recognised but isn’t get a look in,’ he said.
‘But the big benefit of it for the sport is it that it attracts a whole new audience.’ After the first couple of rounds the questions began to get tougher. UFC’s middleweight world champion Adesanya was the first to take the plunge after failing to reveal what media reporters he feels cover him unfairly.
I’d love to answer that one but I blocked them in real life,’ Adesanya said. ‘You know that episode in Black Mirror where you block them and they become a blur, I’ve done that to a couple of reporters and I can’t remember their names but I know their faces and if I did remember it, I’d say it.’
But AJ wasn’t convinced by his answer and shouted: ‘I think that’s a dab!’ Adesanya had no major problems dealing with the first sauce, though he did describe it as ‘tantalising’.
Joshua’s turn was next after he refused to answer what the last film that reduced him to tears. After some hesitation and pretending to dip his chicken wing in the sauce , Joshua finally took a bite and appeared unfazed.
I don’t understand the stress it takes to cheat but I feel like trying this one anyway so I might try some of this on one of these chicken wings. We can’t just go through this trying only one sauce, you got to break at least two.’
After trying just a tiny bit on his finger, Adesanya said: ‘Wow it jumps up levels, if that (picked up the first bottle of sauce) was level three, this is level six.
‘That is a big jump. If you hate someone you can put this in their food but I’ll try a little bit because I’m no b****.’
After the round of questions were over, Joshua and Adesanya braved it by going in to try more of the sauces.
Both men are currently preparing to defend their titles with Adesanya taking on Paulo Costa and Joshua expected to face Kubrat Pulev at the backend of this year
