Anthony Joshua Reveals Favorite Nigerian Food
Heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has revealed the Nigerian foods that gives him strength.
The UK-based boxer born to Nigerian parents said his heart still belongs to Nigeria despite being rejected by the country’s boxing officials many years ago.
Anthony, who knocked out Wladimir Klitschko, his Ukrainian counterpart, in a heavyweight fight at Wembley Saturday night, said he still enjoys Nigerian foods such as pounded yam, eba and egusi, which he described as the secret of his success.
Speaking on how he feels achieving such feat, the visibly elated Joshua said, “Very humbled and not just for myself, but for the people that have worked with me, so it is important that I can only repay by achieving things in the ring”.
“My heart is with Nigeria, my heart is with Britain, I’m a Nigerian by blood, yes. Eating eba with egusi is the secret of success”, he told Oma Akatugba of Sportsbrand.
On his connection with Nigeria, the heavyweight champion said he would meet the governor of his state back in Nigeria to help the people.
“I’m even trying out to get to meet the governor, and go and get something back to Nigeria, even though we do small things for the country between my family and my mother.
“We help out the village she came from and If I could do more on a large scale, I’ll definitely come down there and associate myself more with Nigeria,” Anthony Joshua added.
