Dame Judi Dench Gives Fight Pump-Up Speech to Anthony Joshua

BEHOLD … the great DAME JUDI DENCH … talking boxing, baby!!! 

The legend of stage and screen is also a huge fan of pugilism — and now that her countryman, Anthony Joshua, is defending his belts this weekend against Andy Ruiz, Ms. Dench had a few words to prepare him for battle!

“To say that I shall be cheering, I’ll be cheering anyway, but we’ll keep everything crossed! And, my goodness me, we can’t wait to see you!”

And, that’s not all … a bunch of other UK superstars came together to root on Joshua — including Ed Sheeran, golfer Rory McIlroy, soccer stud Harry Kane, “Fleabag” star Olivia Colman and Oasis singer Liam Gallagher

The fight’s all going on DAZN on Saturday — live from Madison Square Garden. 

It’s Joshua’s first fight in the United States — which is a big deal considering his ongoing negotiations with Deontay Wilder
