In the photos, Anthony bares his bulging biceps and washboard abs as he lathers up in the shower.
The racy photos are part of a Lynx campaign with the boxer, designed to celebrate a decade since first stepping into the ring.
The limited-edition grooming range, which includes a body spray, body wash and Christmas gift pack, will hit the stores at the end of the month, ahead of his fight with Bulgarian boxer Kubrat.
Commenting on the new range, Anthony said: “I’m in and out of the gym all the time, so I know how important it is to have products that will leave me smelling and feeling good.
“I’ve been using Lynx products since I was a kid so it feels right to mark my first ten years in the ring by creating the Lynx YOU Anthony Joshua range.”
