The former world champion was walking past a Loughborough halls of residence building when drunken students reportedly shouted abuse at him, claiming the 32-year-old boxer was avoiding a fight with Tyson Fury.

But the two-time heavyweight champion, who trains at the university, took issue with their comments and pressed the external buzzer to access the building.

After gaining entry to the flat, the six foot five boxer confronted the students, telling them they would not like it if he started "cracking your jaws".

"Remember you’re running your mouth because... when I start cracking your glass jaws, none of you will like it," he told them.

"When your jaws start breaking, people are chasing you out of this uni, none of you will like it.

"Watch your mouths 'cause you don't know who you're talking to sometimes.

"I know, listen, all that public eyeball s**t, I ain't into all that."

A source told The Sun: "Lots of profanity and abusive language was chucked at [Joshua] while the students hid in an upstairs window.

"They picked on the wrong man.

"They should be more careful."
