Anthony Joshua may be set to headline one of the biggest fights of the year when he takes on Wladimir Klitschko at 24/7 Wembley next month, but he has revealed how his tough experiences in a Nigerian boarding school have prepared him to face the Ukrainian.
According to givemesport.com, having been born in Watford to Nigerian parents, Joshua described it as somewhat a culture shock when he moved to the African nation with his mother Yeta for six months at he age of 11.
“I thought I was going there (Nigeria) on holiday”, said the 27-year-old, who will add the WBA title to his IBF heavy weight crown should he beat Klitschko on April 29.
However, I wasn’t prepared for it, it was a boarding school as well. As i was getting older it was good that I experienced it.
