Nigerian born heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua will soon present his belts to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The presidential aide in the Office of the Vice President, Laolu Akande,who made this known while briefing State House correspondents on behalf of the Minister of Sports, Sunday Dare said the date for the presentation of the belts was yet to be fixed.
“The Minister of Sports announced that Anthony Joshua will be presenting his belts to the President in a matter of days. “The Council members also expressed appreciation for the gift of books from the Vice President which has become an annual tradition,’’ he said.
It will be recalled that Mr Joshua, a Nigerian-British boxer, beat Mexican-American boxer, Andy Ruiz Jr., through a unanimous points decision in Saudi Arabia on Saturday.
The victory helped him to reclaim the IBF, WBO, WBA and IBO heavyweight world championship belts he lost to Ruiz Jr. in June.
