The many potentials in Anthony Joshua - Ben Bruce writes

This is an article written by Ben Murray-Bruce; the founder of the Silverbird Entertainment Group and the Senator representing Bayelsa East in the Nigerian National Assembly. Read Below....
Nigeria’s sports sector may have ignored Anthony Joshua but Nigerians did not and certainly I did not. Recall that Silverbird honored him at Man of the Year two years ago.
Today, we are all very proud of Anthony after his stunning defeat of Wladimir Klitschko.

The whole world is celebrating this young man with former world heavy weight champion, Mike Tyson saying Joshua “has changed boxing”.
Joshua may well be the most popular man in world sport for the next few months, but here is the thing, the world media are playing up Anthony Joshua as a British man.

Yes, Britain did a lot for him, and probably more than Nigeria did, but Nigeria must put all that behind and now embrace Joshua.
