This October sees Kong Events bring another sporting superstar to Leicester, in the form of WBC International heavyweight champion and Olympic Gold medallist, Anthony Joshua MBE.
The evening will see the young boxing star attending a lounge suit event in the city on Saturday 10th October. Guests can look forward to a 2 course meal as well as an exclusive Q&A and photo meet and greet with the superstar himself.
A late starter in the sport, Joshua only took up boxing in 2007, aged 18 and represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympic Games when he was just 22; a novice on the international scene, despite being a world silver medallist he wowed spectators as he took the Gold medal and with it the title of Olympic Champion.
Joshua turned professional following his success at the 2012 Olympic Games, competing in the heavyweight division and is the current WBC International heavyweight champion. He boasts an impressive record of 13 wins and 13 knockouts from his 13 professional fights to date!
Shane Whitfield, Owner of Kong Events said, “Anthony Joshua is an amazing young athlete and the remarkable success he’s achieved in less than 10 years in the sport is inspiring; definitely something to talk about! We’re delighted we are able to bring him to Leicester to share his story.”
Following the triumph of K Kong’s previous events which have seen the likes of Mike Tyson, Vinnie Jones and Paul Merson visit the City; Anthony Joshua’s appearance is already set to be a knock-out!
The evening will be hosted at St Martins House in Leicester, and as with previous events, is expected to sell out fast. Tables of 10 are available from £450 or individual tickets are £50 per person, with the opportunity to meet the man himself.
