LOL! Joshua’s washerman congratulates him, but reminds him he’s owing £120

Owner of Anthony Joshua’s local launderette, who the heavyweight champion boxer owes £120 for washing his kit, has revealed he used to give the millionaire boxer financial advice when he was a penniless hopeful.

Muqeem Bakhtari, 32, known locally as Max, said Joshua was still regular at his Launderette in Golders Green, north London, near the ex-council flat where the fighter still lives with his mum.

27yrs old Joshua’s victory over two-time world champion, Wladimir Klitschko, in front of 90,000 people at Wembley on Saturday has earned him a whopping £15m, and he says he has not forgotten his unpaid bill.

Bakhtari said washing the clothes of a boxing champion isn’t easy.

He said: “We look after his clothes extremely well. We don’t want to shrink them. We do it low heat because gym clothes do shrink easily; they’re worse than wool.”

Bakhtari said £120 is about two weeks’ worth of washing if you bring a bag in every day, which is what Anthony does when he’s training.

He said: “We’ll see more of his suits and shirts now he’s out the gym. I’m absolutely over the moon for him. But I could do with the money now; so hopefully he comes in and pays it off as soon as possible.”

Th washerman is too funny. Wetin consyn us for the low heat washing that he uses? Lolz!
