It really must be a fool who would want to attack the world heavyweight champion,can you imagine if he bumps into one of them in an alley?But this is the world we live in today,there is lack of
tolerance on so many fronts and religion happens to be a big one of those fronts.
But it was not all bad news for Joshua as he had so many supports from people of the same faith.They sent him goodwill messages and welcomed him to what they called or termed the light and the way that God has chosen.
He joins a list of famous boxing champions who turned to Islam.The most famous of all of cos is the greatest ,Muhammad Ali who was ready to lose everything for his faith and belief when he converted from a christian and changed his name from Cassius Clay to the now world famous Muhammad Ali.Then there was Mike Tyson who also converted during his troubled times,although lately it has been hard to tell whether he is still practising his adopted faith.
Speaking 6 months ago in an interview,Joshua said he did not have a preferred religion,but believed in prayers,here is an out take from that revelation:'I was born a Christian but as I've grown into my own man I don't attach myself to a religion - 100 per cent I have faith.
"Prayer is a method practised from ancient days, so it's very important for us to maintain a spiritual connection, something that people, gladiators would do years ago, so we're just maintaining that routine," said the undefeated Joshua, 26.
"I'm not going to dig anyone for their beliefs or anything like that, but I definitely feel religion is a big part of life, whether you believe in it or not, in everyone's day-to-day life religion's a big part. Prayer and so on, and beliefs, is definitely important to me.
"I don't have a preferred religion: I'd have to do research. I was born a Christian but as I've grown into my own man I don't attach myself to a religion; 100 per cent I have faith. Then it's locking into what suits me."
People really turn nasty and crazy when it comes to your faith or your preferred faith.One man actually called on the prime minister to deport him cos his faith.Deport him to where?The guy is British.He was born and bred in the UK.So not only are we fighting religious bias and trolls,we are also fighting racism.
