Joshua had on Saturday, January 18, met with President Muhammadu Buhari and presented his heavyweight belts to him in a beautiful scene that sent delight into the hearts of Nigerians across the world.

The heavyweight star, whose father hailed from Sagamu, Ogun state, met President Buhari who was in United Kingdom for Investment Summit alongside Geoffrey Onyeama, minister of foreign affairs.

And interestingly, Joshua proved he is is more a Nigerian than anybody could think as he prostrated for the president before handing his heavyweight IBO, IBF, WBO and WBA belts to him.

The gesture, however, put Joshua on the other side of talks with a large chunk of comments on social media berating the Nigerian-born pugilist for not telling the president about challenges facing youths in the country.

The mixed reactions, especially the hard ones coming from President Buhari's critics, left Joshua stunned and he has now stated the reason for his prostration.

The British boxer attributed his gesture to culture rather than politics, while justifying his action in a post on Insta story.

"It's not about politics. It's about culture and respect for our elders," Joshua hit back at the critics.

Joshua beat Mexican champion Andy Ruiz in Diriyah Stadium on December 7 to reclaim his heavyweight belts.
