HIS heavyweight title win catapulted boxer ANTHONY JOSHUA to new heights of fame – and it was not unnoticed by the world’s most glamorous women.
After defeating WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO in an epic battle at London’s Wembley last month, I can reveal eligible beauty BELLA HADID is the latest to have noticed the hunky sportsman’s appeal.
The duo first met at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last year at the Tate Modern in London, posing for a photo where few could deny they’d have made a seriously goodlooking couple.
But eagle-eyed fans have noticed them quietly exchanging flirtacious “likes” online, with sources saying AJ appears to have made an impression on Bella.
And with both now single after Anthony called time on his on/off romance with pole dance teacher Nicole Osbourne – who knows what could happen.
A source explained: “When they first met they chatted and got on well, but Bella took a bit of a shine to Anthony.
“She’s kept up with his career and has been subtly hinting at her interest with some interaction on Instagram – and he has been reciprocating.
“Anthony is now single again. He split up with his girlfriend after an on/off patch but he feels like it really is over this time. They have known each other since school and have a child together but it just hasn’t worked out.
“Bella is single too. Shes split from The Weeknd and has made it clear she’s focused on doing whatever she wants to – so things could easily happen.”
Chatting about single life just this month, Bella said she had no regrets about her break from the R&B singer.
She said: “It’s like I’m finally getting to the point where I can just think about what I want to do and the places I want to go. I want to be as independent as possible and worry about myself rather than anyone else.”
She’s certainly a girl who knows what she wants, and how to get it…
