- Cristiano Ronaldo revealed that he had a heart-to-heart discussion with Anthony Joshua
- The Portugal international insisted that he wants to be performing at the highest level of the game
- The Juventus striker recently surpassed Pele's all-time goalscoring record during win against Udinese
Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony once crossed paths while spending their holidays in Dubai and the Juventus striker has opened up on their conversation about their journey to the top.
The Portuguese icon revealed he felt inspired by their conversation, which increased his desire to maintain a high level of performance.
The 35-year-old is a big fan of boxing and Mixed Martial Arts told Gennady Golovkin as part of DAZN's Parallel Worlds:
“We had the opportunity to speak last year in Dubai, I was with Joshua and we had conversation.
“Thirty-three years old is that age where you start to feel down.
“I don’t wanna be in the sport, in football, where people say, ‘Cristiano was an unbelievable player and now he’s slow.’
“I don’t want that. You can take care a lot of your body, the body’s not a problem I don’t think.
“It’s here [points to his head], your motivation, experience. I think this is the most tough.”
