West Ham ace Declan Rice pictured with Anthony Joshua and Floyd Mayweather after AJ’s win over Kubrat Pulev December 13, 2020 – Posted in: Soccer
West Ham star Declan Rice followed up a man-of-the-match display against Leeds with a picture alongside two of boxing’s biggest stars.
The England midfielder attended Anthony Joshua’s fight against Kubrat Pulev at Wembley Arena on Saturday night.
The Brit successfully defended his heavyweight titles with a ninth-round knockout win over Pulev.
Afterwards, Rice was pictured with Joshua and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, who fights Logan Paul in an exhibition match in February.
The 21-year-old uploaded the picture to his Instagram page with the caption ‘Champ X TBE [The Best Ever]’.
Rice outshone England teammate Kalvin Phillips in West Ham’s 2-1 win at Leeds on Friday evening.
He has been captaining the Hammers in the absence of Mark Noble, who has had to settle for a place on the bench for most of the season.
talkSPORT host Tony Cascarino insists £80million-rated Rice ‘stinks of a Manchester United signing’.
He said: “Declan Rice was superb.
“He absolutely ran the show in midfield.
“He was up against Kalvin Phillips as well, who is a good player, and I thought he just took the game by the scruff of the neck.
“He just stunk of a Manchester United signing to me. I was sat there thinking, ‘Wow!’”
