The fateful fight took place at AJ’s home ground in the O2 Arena in London. Ring Magazine named Joshua The Prospect of the Year, just a year after his emergence in the professional boxing circuit. AJ is the only other British boxer to win a gold medal at the Olympics and a world title by a major professional sanctioning body. On the other hand, Joshua is the first heavyweight to accomplish this feat.

Anthony Joshua has won Gold at English National Championship and Great Britain National Championship. He also bagged a silver in the World Championship back in 2011. However, Joshua became a star when he won the Gold Medal at the 2012 London Olympics against former World Champion, Roberto Cammarelle.

Joshua conceded the only defeat of his career at the hands of Andy Ruiz Jr. The loss actively stripped him of all his titles. However, AJ overcame Ruiz in a rematch in 2019 and reclaimed his lost treasures, simultaneously becoming the two-time heavyweight champion of the world.
