Ok so this guy just gives me a lot of joy, if you don’t know him it means you have either been in a coma for the last couple of years or you have beaten both Russia and the USA to be the first to live on Jupiter and didn’t get the right PR. He is not a bird, he is not a plane, he is Nigeria’s own iron man, delivering the iron fist to the face of his opponents, and his name is Anthony Joshua. I just felt like one who was announcing the boxer’s entrance into the ring.

The 3 times heavy weight champion now has 22 victories dangling from his belt and now he is on to take down some more top guns as he has identified opponents for his next three fights, Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury and then Dillian Whyte.

Watching the champ release those guns in the ring is a beauty to watch and I’m sure that many young people all over the world, especially Nigerians would not just enjoy the beauty of his success but also admire the pain of hard work and tenacity.

With fury in his eyes, passion in his fist, amazing work ethics and a great smile, Anthony Joshua is set to take the world one punch at a time. The next contender had better watched his jaw because Joshua would certainly knock him out.

Food for champions

ANTHONY JOSHUA HAS REVEALED THE DIET THAT CONTRIBUTED TO MAKING HIM WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION

Every award winning athlete has a physique that can only be tagged "GOALS". I mean look at Serena Williams whose 20 weeks pregnancy tummy looks like an average food belly, come on! To be a titled athlete, it is therefore evident that there's something you gotta give. In an interview with SkySport, Anthony shared some tips on his diet and how it has and is playing an undeniable role in his title claim. 

BREAKFAST: Joshua posted this video of a monster breakfast including beans, eggs, brown bread and a protein shake on Twitter which came to more than 1,000 calories. But he told Sky Sports his latest power-packed breakfast consisted of egg, rice, chicken, avocado, bread, a fruit juice.

LUNCH: His carbs come from rice and noodles and then a side of fibre-rich vegetables.

DINNER: 

First he has lean meat, along with pounded yam, stew and okra. Joshua told Sky Sports that pounded yam, a Nigerian staple food, is one of his key training foods which is packed with slow-burning-complex carbohydrate and fibre. "It just keeps you strong," he says. "It's a dense form of mash potato. If you eat that enough and you train then it's a big carb load." Later he has another round of rice, salmon and noodles.

Oh and by the way, he is Nigerian just in case you don't know! Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, MBE is a British professional boxer. He is currently a unified world heavyweight champion, having held the IBF title since 2016, and the WBA and IBO titles since April 2017.
