Former Nigeria internationals Sunday Oliseh, Osaze Odenwingie and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, have congratulated Anthony Joshua following his win against Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, Completesports.com reports.
Joshua avenged his loss to Ruiz back in June this year with a unanimous points decision win.
The win saw Joshua reclaim the IBF, WBA and WBO titles, now making him a two-time world heavyweight champion.
Reacting to the win Abubakar expressed delight that Joshua has finally reclaimed the world titles.
“Great to see @anthonyfjoshua reclaim the championship. A good fight,” Abubakar wrote on his Twitter handle.
Oliseh wrote:”So relieved and pleased to see our Nigerian pride Anthony Joshua regain his title as World Heavyweight champion, defeating Ruiz. Loved his gratitude to God first, after the victory. Boy was I stressed.”
And according to Odenwingie: “Different skillset from AJ. Live and learn. Reacted sensibly (lost some weight and no complacency) Congrats @anthonyfjoshua . Don’t judge a book by its cover @Andy_destroyer1 With God all things are possible. He is a good fighter and very strong mentally.”
