Boxing’s world heavyweight champ,Anthony Joshua, faces his biggest fear as he takes on a Bear Grylls challenge

‘I just thought we were going for a walk in the countryside,’ says boxer Anthony Joshua as Bear Grylls swoops in to meet him while hanging from a helicopter.

The pair are at Commando Ridge in Cornwall, which is a series of granite rock faces 700ft above the crashing waves of the Celtic Sea. And did we mention Anthony is terrified of heights?

Bear is determined to put the world heavyweight champion through his paces, with tricky climbs, death-defying traverses across 200ft drops and even a rotten old sheep’s leg for dinner.

But Anthony knows a thing or two about over-coming fears, and tackles everything Bear throws at him like a true champ.
