Anthony Joshua has replied to accusations by Amir Khan’s Twitter account surrounding a possible affair with his wife Faryal Makhdoom.
The current unified heavyweight champion denied ever meeting the soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Khan and belted out a bit of Shaggy’s 2000 hit ‘It wasn’t me’ for good measure.
“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 (sic),” maintained Joshua.

The initial tweets from Khan’s account said the following: So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best.
Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer ???? @anthonyfjoshua
Lol moved up in the weight classes lol. Trust me I ain’t the jealous type. No need to send me pictures of the men your talking to #disgusted
Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I’m not hurt but another fighter. I’m making it public. You getting the divorce #Golddigger
Mans like Joshua can have my left overs!
A short time later and Makhdoom came firing back with several responses to the damning posts.
She said: I’m not sure if it’s your family tweeting for you. But I’m not the one who been in the papers for cheating ????
I’m sure you left your family because they robbed you? Not because of me. Stop making false things up.
Accusing other boxers just because your boxing career is finished. Man up Amir.
After all these years. I’ve always defending a cheat, always stuck around for him, always had his back. And I’m called a gold digger?
He’s given me jack s*** — I pay house bills and bills for my daughter myself! It’s like I’m a single mother while he’s out messing around.
And he has the nerve to blast me like that? The amount of evidence I have on you. It can destroy you. But since I loved you at one point in my life, I’ll just let it go.
P.S – I’m not the one who’s been in the papers for cheating ????
I’m not the one who’s been in the papers every month with my pants down ???? Cheater!
You have actually lost it. Wtf ???? where do u make this stuff up from?
At the end of the day I can hold my head high knowing I’ve given this marriage my 100% while amir clearly hasn’t. Bad company.
Bad role model, always around women, alcohol and then he calls himself a Muslim and runs a charity.
I’m sorry to all the fans & family hurt by this. But amir did not need to do stupid tweets accusing others when he’s in the wrong. #guilty
I think he just needs some attention because boxing hasn’t been going well for him so he’s just been acting up ???? #30yearoldbaby
Sometimes people don’t like it when you give them a taste of their own medicine.
Khan has since posted a video to confirm his phone wasn’t hacked as suspected.
