Many Nigerians didn’t believe he would win – Do2dtun on Anthony Joshua’s victory over Francis Ngannou

Popular media personality Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, aka Do2tun, has claimed that many Nigerians didn’t believe Nigerian-British boxer, Anthony Joshua was going to defeat former Franco-Cameroonian UFC star, Francis Ngannou, in their boxing bout on Friday.

Joshua knocked out the former UFC heavyweight champion in the second round of the bout in Saudi Arabia.

Nigerians thronged to social media to celebrate Joshua’s victory over Ngannou with the Federal Government also sending a congratulatory message to him via social media.

However, reacting via his X handle, Do2tun insisted that most Nigerians didn’t support Joshua initially.

He wrote, “Be honest, so many Nigerians didn’t believe Anthony would win this fight. I did. I said to my friends, ‘Boxing is technical & just cos Francis knocked out Fury who I still think hasn’t fought a good contender doesn’t mean he will beat Anthony.’ We need to do better.”

Sharing a screenshot of his tweet on his Instagram page, Do2tun opined that Anthony Joshua was right not to have mentioned Nigeria in his victory speech where he acknowledged Britain, Cameroon and Saudi Arabia.

The OAP wrote, “Success has a lot of family members.

“Failure is an orphan. Such is life but I’ll rather choose one with my full chest.

Let’s stay one place. He [Anthony Joshua] didn’t shout us out but do we truly deserve it?

“Tonnes even bet against him.. chai Naija for show.”
