Anthony Joshua Gives Praise To Those On Coronavirus Front Line

IBF, WBO, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has sent a message of thanks to those on the front line in the battle against coronavirus, saying “we’re in awe of you”.

Joshua is scheduled to face IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev in his world heavyweight title defence at Tottenham’s new stadium on June 20 but, with coronavirus causing sporting fixtures around the world to be postponed, his fight may also be pushed back.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has indicated that a backup date of July 25th is placed on hold for the event.

Joshua gave praise to the men and women who are on the front line, helping decrease the spread of the coronavirus.

In a series of Twitter posts, Joshua said: “It’s humbling to see people giving their everything right now to keep us safe. Shout to everyone on the front-line.

“We see you, we appreciate you, we thank you and we’re in awe of you!

“In this time, I want to use my platform to do something positive so if there’s anything on my channels that I can share with you to connect people locally and globally, then drop a comment below and we’ll see what we can do.

“To beat this, we all need to play our part. Let’s support one another.”
