Anthony Joshua had the time of his life as he put his boxing routine on pause while relaxing at the beach in Barbados.

The boxer can ‘sea’ clearly now that he got to put his hectic schedule on the backburner for a game of catch in the ocean over the Christmas break.

After finishing victoriously in his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr earlier this month, we’re not surprised the 30-year-old booked the first flight to somewhere tropical.

‘Tis the sea-sun after all.

The star took to the ocean to play a game of catch and it’s clear he will never get rid of that competitive streak of his.

Considering he caught the ball like his life depended on it, we’re surprised no one got injured.

Anthony later sipped from fresh coconuts while Rupert Holmes Escape (The Pina Colada Song) played in the background.

Okay, maybe not, but he looks so carefree we really hope it was lightly making its way from some speakers.

Feeling fin-tastic, the athlete ran along the beach with no cares in the world as he joked around with pals.

Running out of the ocean usually reminds us of every slow-motion scene from Baywatch but AJ makes everything more fun.

He was later pictured leaning over a balcony, probably reminiscing on the coconuts and game of catch he just partook in.

That, or he’s deep in thought.

Anthony recently admitted the decision to vacate one of his world titles is ‘out of his hands’.

The British heavyweight reclaimed the belts he lost to Andy earlier this month and holds the IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO titles.

Anthony Joshua drops hint he will give up one of his belts

Despite his getaway, Joshua is still lining up his next fight, but the IBF and WBO have both ordered him to fight their mandatory challengers next, leaving one belt in danger of being vacated.

‘I would hate [to vacate a belt] because it’s so hard to go round and collect all these belts, it’s really difficult and I’ve kept hold of them for so many years,’ he told Sky Sports.

‘So to have to vacate because of the boxing politics would be annoying, but there are things that are out of my control. If I do lose one, I know I’ll be able to get it back.’
