Nigerian Billionaire Hosts Anthony Joshua In France


British-Nigerian boxer Anthony Joshua on Sunday morning paid a visit to businessman Femi Otedola in Monaco, France.

Mr Otedola revealed this in an Instagram post with a photo of himself and the 34-year-old boxer.

“Look who popped by my Monaco residence this morning! The champ himself and my very own namesake @AnthonyJoshua,” he wrote.

Joshua is a close friend of Otedola’s daughter Florence aka DJ Cuppy.

Among those who commented on Otedola’s Instagram post was DJ Cuppy’s ex-fiance Ryan Taylor. “Legendary,” he wrote.

In March, Joshua defeated Cameroonian Francis Ngannou through a second-round knockout in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Ngannou entered the bout with the aura of his impressive debut against Tyson Fury back in November 2023 but Joshua proved too strong for the former UFC champion.

Meanwhile, Joshua has tipped Oleksandr Usyk to beat Tyson Fury when the two world champions collide in their undisputed title fight in Saudi Arabia on May 18.

“I’ve fought Usyk so I can only speak on what I’ve experienced with him – phenomenal fighter, I would say he’s gonna do a really good job.

“I’ve never fought Fury, so I can’t speak on what it’s like to face him. Only speaking on what I know, I have to say Usyk will be victorious,” he told TalkSport.
