Anthony Joshua

 

It wasn’t always an easy ride for Anthony Joshua…. A year before his Olympic triumph he was in court pleading guilty to drug dealing… He got given a second chance by the judge that day and has gone on to use that second chance to produce masses of success in boxing…. He is now quoted as potentially one of the biggest role models the sport has ever had and is in line to collect all four heavy weight belts…

 

Anthony Joshua, MBE (born 15 October 1989) is a British professional boxer. He is the current IBF heavyweight champion, and also holds the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles. As an amateur he won a gold medal in the super heavyweight division at the 2012 Olympics, and silver at the 2011 World Championships. As of March 2016, Joshua is ranked the world's eighth best heavyweight boxer by The Ring magazine, and currently boasts a 100% knockout ratio.[4]

Joshua is the second British boxer, after James DeGale, to win both a gold medal at the Olympics and a world title by a major professional sanctioning body, as well as being the first British heavyweight to do so. He is also only the second boxer in history, after Joe Frazier, to win a professional world heavyweight title while still reigning as the Olympic champion at the top weight.

 

He is inspirational because even though he went off path he come back and fired into action, producing a mass amount of success and proving once again it doesn’t matter where you are or come from you can achieve anything…..

Mother Teresa (1910-1997) was a Roman Catholic nun, who devoted her life to serving the poor and destitute around the world. She spent many years in Calcutta, India where she founded the Missionaries of Charity, a religious congregation devoted to helping those in great need. In 1979, Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and has become a symbol of charitable selfless work. She was beatified in 2003, the first step on the path to sainthood, within the Catholic church.

but how much love we put in the doing.
It is not how much we give,
but how much love we put in the giving.”

A quote from the man himself ‘we're from the projects - East L.A. On welfare the majority of our lives. A lot of my friends are dead and in prison, just like any urban person that comes from areas like I'm from. But my grandma was super-grandma. Ain't nobody mess with our family in my neighborhood because everybody loved my grandma. She was the one that prayed for everybody. We were one of the first families in the projects. And I moved them out. Music allowed me’.

 

He has come from poverty and his continued work ethic, continuing even now being worth millions is inspirational.

 

Another reason Will.i.am is an inspiration is his charity work..... Another quote ‘“I know my purpose is to continue to inspire young people because it’s just going to keep inspiring me back. I want to do my part. I want to invest in America’s future. I am here to let you know that you can be anything you want to be. You are the future of the world.” — will.i.am
