Anthony Joshua will return to the ring this month to defend his IBF and WBA title against Joseph Parker in an fight that promises to create fireworks, but the 28-year-old heavyweight champion spared time from the rigours of training to celebrate his mother on Mother’s day.
Joshua, who was born in Watford, was raised by his Nigerian mother and he shared a childhood picture of himself with his mother and sister.
He tweeted: You are the closest thing to God! The creator of life. Thank you Mama for everything ❤️
