ANTHONY JOSHUA was in tip-top shape as he went jet-skiing in Dubai ahead of his world heavyweight title rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
The pair are set to meet again in just over two months time on July 23, where Joshua will look to reclaim the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles.
Saudi Arabia looks to be the location for the clash, although contracts for the desert dust-up are yet to be signed.
But as Joshua prepares to step back inside the squared circle with the Ukrainian, he took a trip to Dubai.
And the Brit looked in looked ripped as he was all smiles on a jet-ski.
Joshua rode the waves like a champ with the stunning city in the background.

While he's all smiles in the Middle East now, he won't be when he returns in July.
Joshua says he's going to try and knock Usyk out, instead of trying to outbox him for 12 rounds.
Speaking at the Oxford Union AJ, 32, revealed: “The fight with Usyk, in my mind, was going for 12 rounds.
"That was my game plan because I thought I could compete with him as a boxer.

"And I think he won two more rounds than I did. That's how he became champion.
“So the goal now is to go back to basics and go for the knockout."
Usyk, on the other hand, says his country's hardship amid the Russian invasion has given him more motivation to beat Joshua.
The 35-year-old returned to Ukraine near the start of the conflict to defend his homeland.
But he was given permission to leave the front line to prepare for his rematch with AJ in March.
He said: "Of course, what’s going on currently in Ukraine will motivate me a lot in the gym, in training sessions and of course during the fight.
