Popular British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua has come out to attribute his knockout victory over Kubrat Pulev in December 2020 to African power.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.

Over the weekend, Derek Chisora claimed a split decision victory over Bulgarian Pulev at The O2 Arena to break his unenviable streak of three straight defeats, and he was heard asking, “I’m like ‘what the hell did you hit him with?”

Joshua responded, “That African power, bro. That’s what.”

“I was going to message you. I want you to come, I need you to come.”


Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE (born 15 October 1989) is a British professional boxer who is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December 2019 and previously between 2016 and June 2019. At regional level, he held the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from 2014 to 2016.

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua was born on 15 October 1989 in Watford, Hertfordshire, the son of Yeta and Robert Joshua. His mother is Nigerian, while his father is of Nigerian and Irish ancestry. Joshua’s Nigerian background can be specifically traced back to the Yoruba people, amongst whom he is of aristocratic rank.

His cousin, Ben Ileyemi, is also a professional boxer. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013. Joshua spent some of his early years in Nigeria as a boarding school student at Mayflower School in Ikenne.

Following his parents’ divorce when he was 12, he returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, he was called “Femi” by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name, Oluwafemi. He excelled at football and athletics and broke his school’s Year Nine 100 m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.
