Anthony Joshua, MBE is a British professional boxer who has held the IBF heavyweight title since April 2016.

As an amateur he represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics, winning a gold medal in the super-heavyweight division.

As of December 2016, Joshua is ranked as the world's second best heavyweight by BoxRec and the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, fifth best by The Ring magazine, and currently boasts a 100% knockout ratio.

Joshua is the second British boxer, after James DeGale, to win both a gold medal at the Olympics and a world title by a major professional sanctioning body, as well as being the first British heavyweight to do so. He is also the second boxer, after Joe Frazier, to win a world heavyweight title whilst still reigning as Olympic champion at the top weight.

Early Years
Joshua grew up for some of his early years in Nigeria and returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. He excelled at football and athletics and broke the Year Nine 100m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.


Early career

Joshua vs. Whyte
The two had previously fought within the amateur rankings in 2009 where Whyte had won. After surviving the first scare of his career in the second round, Joshua won the fight after initially shaking Whyte with a right hook to the temple and eventually finishing with a devastating uppercut for the knockout in the seventh round.

 

IBF heavyweight champion
Joshua vs. Martin
In February 2016, it was announced that Joshua would face IBF heavyweight champion Charles Martin on 9 April 2016 at the O2 Arena. Martin was making the first defence of the belt that he won in January after defeating Vyacheslav Glazkov for the vacant title. Joshua set the pace in the first round and kept the southpaw Martin at bay before sending him to the canvas with a straight right hand in the second round. Martin got to his feet only to be knocked down for a second time by a similar punch just moments later. This time Martin failed to beat the count after taking too long to get up, and the referee waved the fight off, with Joshua winning his first world title.

Joshua vs. Klitschko
On 2 November 2016, the WBA finally agreed to sanction a unification bout between Joshua and Klitschko for the WBA 'super' title. The WBA agreement was, if Joshua retained his belt against Molina the fight would take place on 29 April 2017 at Wembley Stadium in London.

On 11 December 2016, Anthony Joshua knocked out Eric Molina in the third round and the Joshua vs. Klitschko fight was officially announced.
