Anthony Joshua fever comes to Hartlepool this Saturday – and fans can still get the opportunity to see him.

Just as the promoter of “An Evening with Anthony Joshua” predicted last month, the boxing sensation will come to town this weekend as the new heavyweight champion of the world.

It’s fantastic to have the world champion, the man who’s the talk of not just boxing but British sport

Joshua will be the star attraction at the dinner/talk-in at the Staincliffe Hotel.

“It is fantastic to have the world champion, the man who is the talk of not just boxing but British sport,” said promoter Nathan Greathead.

“I was always confident he’d be coming here with his IBF belt.

“To have beaten the champion, Charles Martin, inside two rounds shows just how good and explosive he is.

“AJ is the first man in history to be the reigning Olympic champion and then to win the world professional title.

“He is looking forward to coming to Hartlepool and meeting and speaking to his fans.

“We’ve been lucky to have a small number of tickets become available but I urge people to act fast.”

The 26-year-old will be the latest in an illustrious line of British world champions Greathead has brought to Hartlepool for talk-ins/dinner dates after appearances by Nigel Benn, Frank Bruno, Joe Calzaghe and Ricky Hatton.

And Nathan praised Brian Morton at the Staincliffe Hotel for staging the event at the seaside venue.

“I can’t thank Brian enough for putting it on and I must thank the people of Hartlepool ane beyond for supporting it,” added Greathead. “I want to put good events on for the town and I’m really excited by this one.”
