It’s no more news that one of the heavyweight boxers in the world has Nigerian roots with his family house traced to the South-western part of Nigeria.
Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitchko
Here are pictures of Anthony Joshua family house in Sagamu. It’s located along Akarigbo road, beside Firstbank Ijokun, Sagamu, Ogun State.

The street where Joshua’s family house is situated
Joshua was born in Watford to a Nigerian mother and a British father of Nigerian and Irish descent. His cousin is fellow unbeaten professional boxer Ben lleyemi. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013.
Joshua grew up for some of his early years in Nigeria and returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School.
Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, Joshua was called ‘Femi’ by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name ‘Oluwafemi’.
He excelled at football and athletics and broke the Year Nine 100m record with a time of 11.6 seconds. He recently raked 15 million pounds from his Klitchko fight and is poised to battle his British counterpart, Tyson Fury
