Banjo made the announcement when he visited the family house of the Joshuas and said renaming the road was the council’s way of showing appreciation to the boxing legend for “making Sagamu and Remoland proud.”

Banjo added that by defeating Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in the ninth round during their fight earlier this month, Joshua has once again shown that the state has a lot of talents and if harnessed properly, they would bring honour and laurels to the state.
