Overview


Anthony Joshua, whose name is now synonymous with strength and victory, was not always known for his athleticism and power. Joshua has risen from the streets, narrowly avoiding a life of drugs and crime, to become one of the top boxers in the world. Joshua rose to international fame after winning Gold at the London Olympics of 2012, since then he has gone from strength to strength, amassing a large and loyal fan base as he has slowly climbed the ranks of the ring. The fight on April 29th, 2017, against Wladimir Klitschko, was tantalizingly, closely fought, lasting 12 rounds, but it was Joshua who finally came out on top. More than 90,000 people were witness to Joshua’s sheer brilliance, as he secured his title as the WBA Super Heavyweight Champion—the largest crowd seen since the last world war. Backed by an incredible number of fans, Joshua, with over a million followers on twitter and 2 million on Facebook, is bringing legions of new fans to the sport. The future is bright for Anthony Joshua, who, at the top of his game, is now the man to beat.
