Two-time unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has proven to be a true son of the soil.

It was gathered that during commonwealth service held at the Westminster Abbey, Joshua was given the opportunity to speak in front of the Queen Of England, members of the royal family and other top officials.

The 30 year old gave a remarkable speech before the Queen and Prince Philip at the service, bringing to bare, his lineage and Nigerian heritage. He did not forget to mention that he is proudly Yoruba and proudly Nigerian.

Read His Speech Below:

“My name is Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua and, like many of you here, I’m a child of the Commonwealth. I was born in Watford and my heritage is Nigerian. I come from the Yoruba people, who are the largest and some might say the loudest ethnic group in all of Africa. “I’m proudly Nigerian and proudly British. These days we hear so much about division and difference that some might be tempted to see that as a bad thing. But on the contrary, it’s a beautiful thing. A thing to be celebrated and cherished, and a great source of peace and stability. I feel opportunity should be there for the taking along with hard work, dedication and perseverance, regardless of one’s background. We need to strive harder collectively in order to create unity. It takes a village to raise a child. And in the same vein it takes a whole community to act and stand together to tackle some of the challenges we are confronted with today.

He ended his speech by saying: “So here’s to fish and chips, egusi soup and pounded yam. To the UK and Nigeria, and the children of the Commonwealth.
