Anthony Joshua Bio

Anthony Joshua meets mandatory challenger the dangerous Russian Alexander Povetkin

By Paul Humphreys   - @intuboxing


Anthony Joshua meets mandatory challenger the dangerous Russian Alexander Povetkin in front of a packed house at Wembley Stadium live and exclusive on Sky Sports Box Office.

Here I will take a closer look at Joshua's career so far.

 

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua 

Height 6.6 (198cm) 

Reach 82 inch (208cm) 

Nickname AJ

21 fights 

21 wins 

20 KO 

WBO WBA IBF IBO Heavyweight champion. 

 

Born October 15, 1989, in Watford to a Nigerian mother and an English/Nigerian father, his early life was spent misused and attracted the attention of the police, Anthony is a great example of what sport can bring to young people .....direction.

He also spent some of his early years in a Nigerian boarding school before returning to the UK.

 

Age 18 Anthony started his Boxing life at Finchley ABC in 2007.

Joshua went on to win the 2009/2010 Haringey Box Cup and the ABA championship in 2010.

This success earned him a place on the GB team.

In 2011 Anthony caused a sizable shock and grabbed silver in Azerbaijan at the World championships setting him up for a run at Olympic Gold in London a year later.

In 2012 the stars aligned and AJ indeed won Olympic gold in London setting him on the road to boxing superstardom.

Amateur record 40-3 

July 2013 Anthony Joshua turned professional under the Matchroom banner making his debut October 5 2013.

A series of impressive stoppage wins 

Culminating in a tilt at the IBF Heavyweight championship against Charles Martin on April 9th at the O2 arena, Joshua despatched the hapless Martin in 2 one-sided rounds and his road to global and financial domination was well and truly underway.

He snuck in a few defences before his first unification fight against the legendary Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley stadium in from of 90k screaming fans in April 2017 stopping Wladimir in 11 pulsating rounds AJ HAD LIFT OFF. 

After a routine defence against late replacement Carlos Takam November 2017 the clamour to face WBC champion the fearsome puncher Deontay Wilder was growing by the day after a failed round of talks Joshua announced he would attempt to add the WBO belt against Joseph Parker in April 2018 at the Principality stadium in Cardiff.

Joshua won a clear decision to again set up negotiations for a mouth-watering fight with the fearsome wilder and again the fight failed to materialise so we are now left with Povetkin this coming Saturday.

I expect Anthony to use his extra height and reach to stop the dangerous but fading Russian to hopefully push that elusive fight with Deontay Wilder 1 step closer
