Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo Saturday night celebrated new International Boxing Federation world heavyweight champion Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua.
Joshua, 26, who is born to Nigerian parents but fights under the flag of Great Britian, defeated American title holder Charles Martin via a second round knockout in London to claim the world title.
It was 2012 Olympic gold medallist Joshua’s 16th straight professional win, all by knockout, and Martins’ first defeat in 24 fights.
“Yesss! Anthony Joshua is a beast,” Watford striker Ighalo tweeted moments after the fight, with a picture of himself among the spectators at the 02 Arena, venue of the fight.
