Naomi Campbell sweats as she swings punches during boxing session with ex-trainer Anthony Joshua at Dubai fitness studio
Naomi Campbell has stepped up her fitness regimen by taking up boxing during her current stay in the United Arab Emirates.
The British model, 52, was seen throwing punches in the ring at the Dubai-based fitness studio of PrettyLittleThing founder Umar Kumani on Monday.
Campbell’s session was overseen by legendary American trainer Anthony ‘Chill’ Wilson, a Washington DC Boxing Hall of Fame inductee whose former clients include former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

In social media footage from her latest fitness session at the Kumani Club, Campbell was challenged by Wilson, who circled the model with a padded target as she threw punches.
The catwalk veteran is already a yoga and pilates enthusiast, while resistance and circuit training are also part of her rigorous fitness regimen.
Boxing trainer Wilson has worked with over 20 professional boxing champions and numerous Olympians, including Joshua.

The British heavyweight trained with Wilson in Dubai while preparing for his ill-advised rematch against Ukrainian fighter Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua, who was thoroughly beaten by Usyk in their opener at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, was seen hitting the pads as he prepared for their away game.
But he was beaten well for the second time in the rematch in Saudi Arabia, Usyk comfortably winning the points decision and retaining Joshua’s belts.
