MARCUS RASHFORD has stopped running rings around full-backs for a moment - and stepped into the ring with Anthony Joshua instead.

The Manchester United starlet paid a visit to AJ, who is training for his heavyweight clash with Kubrat Pulev on October 28.

The pair posed on the ringside with their fists raised as Joshua held his arm around teenager Rashford.

The 27-year-old is actually a Watford fan - a team United are yet to face this season.

But Joshua will be right behind Rashford when he heads to the World Cup with England, with high hopes on his young shoulders.

And the 19-year-old will step into a heavyweight clash of his own on Saturday lunchtime as United travel to Anfield for the 12.30 kick-off against Liverpool.

It will be the biggest game of United's season so far and Jose Mourinho's side are without Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini in midfield, with the pair currently recovering from injury.

But the Red Devils are undefeated in the Premier League this season and are level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.

And Rashford will surely be involved on Saturday, having scored six goals for United so far this term.

He has been rotated with Anthony Martial for most of the season as Mourinho's attack looks to have finally found some scoring form.

He said before England played Slovenia that he has had to watch who he hangs out with, appearing to suggest hangers-on have been trying to piggy back on his success.

Rashford said: "The big change is the way I look after myself because someone is always trying to get something off the back of you.

"There's nothing I can do about it. I just have to be smart and try not to put myself in those situations as much as I can."

Meanwhile Joshua has declared he WOULD like to take on David Haye, after the Londoner has fought Tony Bellew.

He said: "It's not a matter of if, it's just a matter of when, when it comes to the likes of David Haye and Deontay Wilder.

"There has been no era of boxing where heavyweights, middleweights, welterweights haven't come together."
