- Anthony Joshua has donated food items to communities in Nigeria
- The Nigerian-born British heavyweight posted a video clip on social media showing how the people appreciated his gesture
- The 31-year-old is set to defend his four belts against Kubrat Pulev
Anthony Joshua has extended his hand of help to communities in his ancestral home in Nigeria by donating food items amid the pandemic.
The world heavyweight champion made a 49 seconds video clip of his plans to some communities including the slum in Makoko and in his hometown in Sagamu, Ogun state.
AJ has never shied away from claiming he hails from the West African nation and has taken a step further by donating to the needy during the harsh economic conditions.
The Nigerian-born Brtish heavyweight fighter has occasionally visited the country and has met with the number citizen President Muhammadu Buhari.
Joshua reclaimed his WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO belts in December 2019 from the man who knocked him out in June that same year, Andy Ruiz Jr.
After Tyson Fury's victory over Deontay Wilder in February, there has been calls for a heavyweight title unification showdown between both British champions.
But Joshua would have to scale Kubrat Pulev's hurdle while Fury has to convincingly defeat Wilder in their trilogy fight.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Anthony Joshua's fight with Kubrat Pulev has not been finalized amid the global pandemic that has crippled sporting activities around the world.
The heavyweight championship bout was slated for the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20, but would not materialize.
All sporting activities are set to return behind closed doors and Joshua's defense of his WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO belts remains uncertain.
Organizers believe it would be difficult for a fight of that magnitude to be attended to without fans inside the venue.
Legit.ng also reported that Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather have always thrown words at each other but the former undisputed heavyweight king has for once seen a good side of the Money Man.
The Baddest Man on the Planet claims Mayweather can become the best boxing trainer alive if he puts his mind into it.
The 43-year-old undefeated fighter recently opened up about his desire to follow in his late uncle's steps Rodger to become a coach.
Tyson believes it is not common for boxers to become a trainer after their careers but has backed Mayweather to become a legend in the craft of bringing up other boxers.
