JD ambassador AJ said: “When I was a kid, Christmas was all about getting that one pair of trainers that I’d been dreaming about, so this campaign hits home for me and I’m thankful to be part of something that spreads a bit of magic this year.

“This Christmas is going to be a different one but I hope that it can be just as special for everyone!”

Joshua will be hoping for an early present in the shape of a victory against Bulgarian giant Kubrat Pulev on December 12.
