Jose Mourinho Meets Nigeria’s Anthony Oluwafemi, New IBF Boxing Champion

The Special One, Jose Mourinho was there live to watch Nigerian-British Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua claim the IBF crown from his American opponent at The O2.

Mourinho surprised Joshua when he arrived unannounced to see him. He waited patiently in the queue outside Joshua’s dressing room to congratulate him on becoming the new IBF heavyweight king.

Speaking about the meet, Joshua said: “Jose was watching the build-up and then decided, all of a sudden, he wanted a ticket last-minute. They managed to get him a seat and I met him afterwards.

“I’ve met him before and he remembered me. We had a good five-minute chat. I respect him. We were in the changing room and he’s a cool guy…”
