Over the last 8 years Anthony Joshua has pounded his way to the top of the boxing world. In April 2017 he faces the legendary Ukrainian, Wladimir Klitschko, in the fight that commentators are labelling the fight of the century. The famous Wembley Stadium will host the bout, which promises to represent a gateway into a new era of heavyweight boxing. This new era belongs to Joshua.
When 18-year-old Anthony Joshua first stepped into a North London gym in 2008, nobody could have imagined the meteoric rise to superstardom. As an amateur he stunned all observers, claiming a silver medal in the World Championships in Azerbaijan. Then a spectacular victory in front of a home crowd at London 2012 saw him claim Olympic Gold.
The professional ranks called, and Joshua delivered. His first 18 fights: all 18 wins, all by knockout. And so this young fighter has graduated to the top tier of the division. 90,000 fans will watch him fight in April, as he attempts to clinch further world titles and his place in history.
This is an intimate biography of a champion. It is an account from a writer who has witnessed the journey from the start, following Joshua from his earliest amateur bouts to major title fights. He reveals a boxer with respect for his predecessors, a level head and an unwavering determination to succeed. The heavyweight division is about to be lit up by a refreshing new hero. His name is Anthony Joshua.
