National Telecommunications Company, Globacom, has congratulated Nigerian-born British boxer, Anthony Joshua, as he reclaimed all the world boxing heavyweight belts he lost in his first match with the Mexican, Andy Ruiz, in June this year.
Joshua, in the repeat match on Saturday night against Ruiz in Diriya Arena, Saudi Arabia, won on a unanimous points decision to regain his four world heavyweight titles, International Boxing Federation (IBF),World Boxing Association (WBA), World Boxing Organisation (WBO), and International Boxing Organisation (IBO) after the 12 rounds bout.
Congratulating the pugilist in a statement released in Lagos, Globacom said Joshua’s unlimited performance earned him the victory.
According to Globacom, “The match was tough and tight, we commend Joshua for his hard work, concentration and never-say-die spirit which Nigerians are known for globally and which earned him the much needed victory. Your victory in Diriya is a testament to your outstanding boxing prowess and determination to excel. You gave a good account of yourself and we are very proud of you”.
The telecommunications company alluded to Joshua’s statements in the globally acclaimed Glo TVC, where the boxing icon outlined the characteristics he shares with Globacom to include “the never-say-die, unlimited and can-do spirit”.
Joshua further proclaimed in the TVC that, “You need strength. Yeah, that comes from the hard knocks that life throws at us and we are Nigerians, we know all about that.”
Anthony Joshua had surprisingly lost his world heavyweight boxing titles to Andy Ruiz who was last minute replacement of WBA no 2 contender, Jerry Miller, at Madison Square Garden, New York on June 1, 2019.
