World Heavyweight Boxing Champ Bows Before Buhari


Nigerian British-born world heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, met with President Muhammadu Buhari in London today, January 18 and presented his three championship belts to the Nigerian leader in the presence of some government officials and his family.
President Buhari was pleased with Joshua’s candour and praised him for making Nigeria proud.

It will be recalled that Joshua regained the WBA, IBF, and WBF titles after defeating Andy Ruiz last December in a highly anticipated fight called ‘The Clash of the Dunes’, joining boxing greats like Mohammed Ali, Lennox Lewis as a two-time champion.
Joshua surprised everyone at the meeting when he proceeded to prostrate before the President.
