Jose Mourinho pictured with Anthony Joshua after IBF Heavyweight title win

April 11, 2016
Jose Mourinho was at the O2 arena to
see British-Nigerian Anthony Joshua (real names Anthony
Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua) claim the IBF Heavyweight crown from Charles
Martin inside two rounds. The Portuguese then
surprisingly waited patiently in the queue of well wishers  to
congratulate him on becoming the new IBF heavyweight king.
“Jose was watching the build-up and then decided, all of a sudden, he wanted a ticket last-minute,” said Joshua. 
 “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. He just
congratulated me. There were some good faces there. I saw Jess Ennis,
too.”

Boxing Promoter Eddie Hearn was shocked when he saw Mourinho and says his presence shows how big Joshua is becoming.
“We
didn’t even know he was coming,” said the Matchroom Sport MD. “He just
rocked up at half-six at the Arena and started texting people to get in.
“He then queued up at the changing room to meet him. AJ is a massive star. He is the new figurehead of British boxing.”
