ANTHONY JOSHUA celebrated his stunning KO win over Robert Helenius with a rude gesture.
The Brit crossed his arms and stretched his hips out after delivering a clever right-hand swipe at his Finnish opponent.
The action was similar to the action of the WWE Hall of Famers’ D-Generation X, known as “Crotch Crop”.
The referee didn’t even have to start the count when Helenius fell worryingly to the canvas.
The 39-year-old was then given oxygen before thankfully getting back on his feet.
Joshua, bloodied in the face, then exited the ring and celebrated his overwhelming stop success with the ringside fans, poking some with his fists and hugging the lucky few.
And unlike in his previous bouts, the Watford brawler seemed reluctant to have the mic after the win.
In the subsequent conversation with DAZN, AJ said: “People have to leave me alone, this is my time in the ring.”
“Let me keep doing what I want to do. Helenius, I told him to come back. I think he can cause a lot of problems for people.”
“I don’t want to say too much. I want to see you two more times this year. Thanks to Eddie.”

The 33-year-old then posed for the remaining fans in the O2 Arena for a while.
But some of those at the London venue were less than impressed halfway through the fight.
There were audible boos as Joshua seemed reluctant to launch a full attack on his late substitute opponent, despite tagging him from the inside.
