Boxing star Anthony Joshua has made the move from boxing to football, at least in the virtual world, after it was confirmed he will appear in "FIFA 21."

Joshua will be a playable character in the video game's "Volta" mode — in which players are able to test their skills in a small-sided game with five-a-side rules.

Olympic gold medalist and world heavyweight champion Joshua is being introduced as a "Groundbreaker," alongside Kaka, Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry, Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, Atletico Madrid youngster Joao Felix and FIFA 21 cover star Kylian Mbappe.

Diplo, a three-time Grammy Award-winning DJ and producer, also features.

Players will be able to pit their wits against the Groundbreakers, while also being able to recruit them into their squads.
