 World heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has promised to visit Sagamu in Ogun State soon.

Joshua, whose father and mother are from Sagamu,  defended his IBF and  WBA  titles on Saturday against Cameroonian Carlos Takam at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff.

The family of the 28-year-old and the Sagamu Youth Congress prepared for his visit after his victory over former world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in April. However, Joshua postponed his  visit.

Spokesman for the SYC, Ayodele Osho, told a Punch correspondent that the youth body had contacted the champion through one of his promoters to facilitate his visit to Nigeria.

“It is another exciting moment in the annals of Sagamu that our brother is progressing well in his chosen field,” he said.

“Before his first fight, we have been  identifying  with him and we let him know that we are supporting him and behind him in all his fights. The youths of Sagamu are expecting him home anytime he comes because he has promised us that he will visit Sagamu whenever he comes to Nigeria.

“We got in contact with him through one of his promoting outfits. The promoters have made it clear to us that he (Joshua) is making plans to come home and a visit to Sagamu is on the cards.”
