By Patricia Uyeh,
Nigerian born British boxing champion, Anthony Joshua has bagged the ‘Sportsman Of The Year’ award at the just concluded 20th annual GQ Men of the year awards.
According to the organisers:
‘If you didn’t witness our next winner in May as he heroically defeated Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley then, frankly, where were you? Knocked down and off his feet by round six, our winner fought back in a way rarely seen outside of Rocky films, cementing his status not just as the heavyweight champion of the world, but a national treasure in waiting’
