Online reports indicate that model Bella Hadid and boxer Anthony Joshua are flirting the millennial way – by liking each other’s pictures online.

British Anthony Joshua became heavyweight champion last month when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by one of the Hadid sisters.

It seems his successes has caught the eye of US model Bella, who has been dishing out the Instagram likes ever since the pair met at a GQ bash last year, reports Metro UK.

This hasn’t gone unnoticed by his fans, especially the female folk who took to twitter en masse to protest the possibility of the hookup between the boxer and the star model.
