Do2tun Speaks Out: Nigerians Initially Skeptical, but Anthony Joshua Proves Doubters Wrong


Media personality Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, popularly known as Do2tun, has asserted that many Nigerians initially doubted Nigerian-British boxer Anthony Joshua’s ability to defeat former Franco-Cameroonian UFC star Francis Ngannou in their recent boxing bout. Despite Joshua’s knockout victory in the second round, Do2tun expressed his observations about the initial skepticism among Nigerians.

In a post on his X handle, Do2tun revealed, “Be honest, so many Nigerians didn’t believe Anthony would win this fight. I did. I said to my friends, ‘Boxing is technical & just cos Francis knocked out Fury who I still think hasn’t fought a good contender doesn’t mean he will beat Anthony.’ We need to do better.”

Despite the celebratory mood on social media after Joshua’s triumph, Do2tun shared a screenshot of his tweet on Instagram, emphasizing that Anthony Joshua’s decision not to mention Nigeria in his victory speech was justified. He commented, “Success has a lot of family members. Failure is an orphan. Such is life, but I’ll rather choose one with my full chest. Let’s stay one place. He [Anthony Joshua] didn’t shout us out, but do we truly deserve it? Tonnes even bet against him… chai Naija for show.”

Do2tun’s perspective sheds light on the dynamics of public sentiment surrounding sports figures and the need for consistent support, even in the face of doubt.
