Anthony Joshua Background

Anthony Joshua is a name synonymous with boxing and rightly so, as he has had an impressive boxing career. Born in Watford, England, to Nigerian parents, Joshua's background blends British and Nigerian influences. The boxer spent part of his childhood in a Nigerian boarding school at Mayflower School in Ikenne. However, after his parents divorced, Joshua came back to the UK at 12 years old and enrolled in Kings Langley Secondary School during his seventh year.

Joshua's athleticism was not limited to boxing, as he excelled in track and field, once recording a quick time in the 100-meter sprint. But at 18, he found his calling in boxing and he stuck to it. 

He had a successful amateur career, as he picked up a silver medal at the 2011 World Championships and a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics. In 2013, he turned professional and his rise was rapid. By 2016, he captured his first world title, the IBF heavyweight championship.

Over the next few years, Joshua became a dominant force, adding the WBA, WBO, and IBO titles to his collection. He even earned iconic victories, like his dramatic knockout of Wladimir Klitschko in front of a massive Wembley Stadium crowd.

Though he has faced setbacks in recent years, losing his titles in 2021, Anthony Joshua remains a major figure in boxing.
