In 2013, he received the MBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) from Prince Charles after winning a gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics in the heavyweight boxing.
He has to his name, the IBF, WBO, and WBA heavyweight world champion.
Named as the world’s best active heavyweight by The Ring and maintaining an unbeaten record of having 22 wins from 22 fights, it is no wonder that Joshua is among those listed in Guardian Life’s Outstanding Personalities of 2018
Meanwhile, he has expressed interest in fighting against American boxer Deontay Wilder,
I am ready to make a deal but I can’t say that it’s close, because it isn’t.
“It all depends on if Wilder wants to be the undisputed champion. If he does, then we’ll get the fight made. If he’s not bothered, then he’ll swerve it,” his promoter Eddie Heard told Sky Sports.
