West Ham star Declan Rice adopted up a man-of-the-match show towards Leeds with an image alongside two of boxing’s greatest stars.
The England midfielder attended Anthony Joshua’s combat towards Kubrat Pulev at Wembley Enviornment on Saturday evening.
The Brit efficiently defended his heavyweight titles with a ninth-round knockout win over Pulev.
Afterwards, Rice was pictured with Joshua and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, who fights Logan Paul in an exhibition match in February.
The 21-year-old uploaded the image to his Instagram web page with the caption ‘Champ X TBE [The Best Ever]’.
Rice outshone England teammate Kalvin Phillips in West Ham’s 2-1 win at Leeds on Friday night.
He has been captaining the Hammers within the absence of Mark Noble, who has needed to accept a spot on the bench for a lot of the season.
talkSPORT host Tony Cascarino insists £80million-rated Rice ‘stinks of a Manchester United signing’.
He mentioned: “Declan Rice was very good.
“He completely ran the present in midfield.
“He was up towards Kalvin Phillips as effectively, who is an efficient participant, and I believed he simply took the sport by the scruff of the neck.
“He simply stunk of a Manchester United signing to me. I used to be sat there considering, ‘Wow!’”
