Nigerian born Anthony Joshua has denied sleeping with Faryal Makhdoom Khan, the wife of fellow British boxer, Amir Khan, after the couple went on a public spat on Twitter.
27-year-old Joshua was accused by Khan of having a relationship with his wife after their recent break-up, which 30-year-old Khan announced via social media on Friday afternoon.
The former light-welterweight world champion Khan posted a series of accusations on Twitter while in Dubai, to which 26-year-old Ms Khan responded with her own claims against him that included accusations that he has cheated on her in the past.
After the war of words appeared to end, Joshua took to Twitter to make light of the situation, posting a video of the song ‘It Wasn’t Me’ by Shaggy, before adding: “Bantz aside, I hope you guys can resolve your situation or this is a hack as we have never even met! Plus I like my women BBW #ItWasntMe.”

BBW is an acronym for black beautiful women.
Khan’s wife is slim and light skinned.
The troubled couple were together on holiday in Dubai to celebrate Faryal’s 26th birthday last week, but it’s understood that Faryal has since flown back to England herself.
Their marriage, by their own admission, is all but over.
