Biography

Anthony Joshua’s breakthrough came at the 2011 World Championships where he won silver. He defeated Olympic champion Roberto Cammarelle in the quarter- finals to qualify for London 2012.

Focusing on football and athletics, he could run 100m in 11 seconds aged 15, and he didn’t start boxing until cousin Gbenga Ileyemi, the 2011 ABA heavyweight champion, took him to the gym.

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Joshua won gold in super heavyweight (+91kg).
