President Muhammadu Buhari has commended Anthony Joshua, world heavyweight boxing champion, for regaining his belts in a rematch with Andy Ruiz jnr, a Mexican.

In a congratulatory message issued by Femi Adesina, his spokesman, the president rejoiced with Joshua, saluting him for bringing joy to millions of Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora.

He said Joshua’s supporters across the world had rooted for him to regain the titles he lost about six months ago.

“The downfall of a man is truly not the end of his life. There’s always another, and better day. This is a lesson we must all learn from you as a country.”

He wished Joshua well “as he seeks to bring more glory to Nigeria, and to the boxing profession”.

Joshua beat Ruiz in a unanimous points decision in Saudi Arabia to seize back the heavyweight world championship belts he lost to his Mexican-American opponent in a shocking upset in June.

The “Clash on the Dunes” in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, was for the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles, and judges scored the fight 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109 to the 30-year-old Briton.
