Playboy star turned ring girl calls Anthony Joshua ‘husband’ as he shows muscles

Playboy star turned boxing ring girl Carla Howe has branded Anthony Joshua "husband" after he flexed his muscles in a topless snap.

Carla took to Instagram to share Joshua's latest topless upload as he prepares for a rematch against Dillian Whyte while rebuilding his boxing career.

The shared snap reached her million followers this week after she told Daily Star Sport that she is keen on stepping into the ring in her own bout.

The two-time former world heavyweight champion's ripped physique 12 days before the bout shows his training camp has been working wonders in Las Vegas before his London return on August 12.

Joshua bounced back from back-to-back defeats against Oleksandr Usyk by edging past Jermaine Franklin in April as he looks to get back to title contention.

The 33-year-old can always bank on the support of the former Playboy star, who posed with Joshua on Halloween where they discussed fighting.

Having signed up to take part in Celebrity MMA last year, Carla found a love for combat sports and signed up to box former Love Island star AJ Bunker before suffering an injury in sparring.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Sport, Carla said: "Celebrity MMA was really complex and I liked learning so much in a short space of time – boxing came next and it's a great form of self-defence.

"I trained with Ricky Hatton and got advice from Anthony Joshua and Chris Eubank Jr when I was supposed to be fighting AJ Bunker.

"I will be ready for anything that comes my way after getting advice from the best in the world of boxing – I'm open to the right opportunity if it comes along.

"The advice I got from Anthony was great, having felt tense in training his words made me feel at ease going forward."

Carla, who once lived in the Playboy mansion during her time modelling for the entertainment magazine, has more recently moved into boxing as a ring girl for Floyd Mayweather.

The pair even danced as she updated fans of the round, before he went on to stop Deji Olatunji.
