Ogun State Govt to name stadium and street after Anthony Joshua.

In the wake of his new feat, defeating Ukrainian star, Wladimir Klitschko in an epic 11 round battle at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, 27 year-old boxer, Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, is set to be honoured in Ogun State, Nigeria where his parents hail from. Born to a Nigerian mother and a British father of Nigerian and Irish descent, speculation is rife that the Sagamu International Stadium in Ogun State will be renamed ‘The Anthony Joshua Stadium’ and the Cinema Street named ‘Anthony Joshua Street’ by the Ogun State government.
Joshua’s family reportedly own around half of the land and property on one side of the street and the cinema was built by his great-grandfather Omo-Oba Daniel Adebambo Joshua in the 50s.
‘We are proud of what he has achieved as a son of Sagamu, and we will be happy to do our own little bit to show our appreciation and support for him.’ Majority Leader of Ogun State House of Assembly, Asiwaju Adeyinka Mafe reportedly stated.
