Anthony Joshua Profile
Anthony Joshua is a professional boxer currently competing in the Heavyweight division - possessing one o the biggest names in the sport. Joshua is an Olympic and two-time unified World Heavyweight boxing champion.
Born on 15th October 1989 in Watford, Hertfordshire, the Englishman entered boxing in 2007 at the age of 18 which was the beginning of his meteoric rise to stardom, winning the Olympic gold medal at the 2012 games in London.
A year later, Joshua turned professional under Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing banner, beating Yoandris Salinas in his maiden outing in the squared circle. After securing the British and Commonwealth Heavyweight titles in 2015 at the expense of Gary Cornish, Joshua became a world champion after knocking out Charles Martin and extending his perfect in-ring record.
In his 19th fight, arguably one of the best Heavyweight title fights in recent years took place at Wembley Stadium as Joshua took on Wladimir Klitschko, with both fighters hitting the canvas before Joshua got the win in the 11th round. He became the WBA (Super), WBO, IBO, and IBF Heavyweight champion.
After seven successful title defences, the world of boxing was stunned as Joshua lost the belts to Andy Ruiz Jr in Madison Square Garden in June 2019, but quickly secured redemption in their rematch six months later in Saudi Arabia.
Joshua's latest win came against veteran Kubrat Pulev at the SSE Arena in December and holds the four world championship belts he won against Klitschko.
