Many Nigerians didn’t believe Anthony Joshua would defeat Francis Ngannou – OAP Dotun

On-Air-Personality, Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, professionally called Dotun, has claimed that many Nigerians didn’t believe Anthony Joshua was going to win the boxing match with Francis Ngannou.

Joshua knocked out the former UFC heavyweight champion in the second round of the bout on Friday at the Kingdom Arena 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.

"Don't leave boxing" - Joshua encourages Francis Ngannou

However, reacting via his Twitter page, Do2tun admitted that he had doubts in the British-Nigerian’s capability due to how Ngannou put up an impressive fight against Tyson Fury.

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.”

Reposting 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.”
