Anthony Joshua to have stadium named after him in Nigeria
Anthony Joshua will soon have a stadium named after him in Nigeria.
The Sagamu International Stadium is set to honour Joshua following his win in the fight with Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley on Saturday night.
Yinka Mafe, the majority leader of the State House of Assembly in the Ogun State government in Nigeria, was among those who watched Joshua’s win in an open air viewing event.
Joshua’s parents are from the Ogun State region of Nigeria. According to ESPN , Mafe has vowed to rename the stadium after Joshua and also the popular Cinema Street.
Joshua’s great grandfather, Omo-Oba Daniel Adebambo Joshua, built the cinema that sits on the road during the 1950s.
Mafe said: “We are proud of what he has achieved as a son of Sagamu, and we will be happy to do our own little bit to show our appreciation and support for him,”
