President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Anthony Joshua, for regaining his belts Saturday night in a re-match with Mexican’s Andy Ruiz Jnr.
The President rejoiced with Joshua, saluting him for bringing joy to millions of Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora, who had rooted for him to regain the titles he lost about six months ago.
“The downfall of a man is truly not the end of his life. There’s always another, and better day. This is a lesson we must all learn from you as a country,” President Buhari told Joshua in a statement by his Spokesman, Femi Adesina.
He wished Joshua well as he seeks to bring more glory to Nigeria, and to the boxing profession.
