World champion heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua is coming to town, as part of the closing ceremony for the Dubai Fitness Challenge.
There’s already going to be a huge event taking place on the final weekend of this year’s festival, which will take place on Friday November 17 and Saturday 18 at Dubai Festival City. It’s been a month-long initiative aimed at turning Dubai into the healthiest and fittest city in the world, and has focussed on being active for just 30 minutes every day for 30 days.
That’s something Joshua, the undefeated heavyweight champion who has won each of his 20 professional career fights by knockout, is a keen advocate of. His message at the Dubai Fitness Challenge closing weekend carnival will be to keep up the momentum built by this brilliant city-wide initiative that’s definitely captured the audience’s imagination.
“It’s been a year since my last trip to Dubai and I am excited to be going back again to be part of the inaugural Dubai Fitness Challenge,” said Joshua. “It’s a great initiative that encourages people to get active for 30 minutes daily for 30 days. I am committed to getting people moving and I’m looking forward to being part of this fitness movement.”
What Joshua has got planned for his appearance is being a closely guarded secret, but we do know it will be interactive, and it will get the audience involved – so we’re hoping for a heroic workout worthy of the Olympic champion himself.
He’ll also be giving a motivational speech to encourage everyone to keep fit and healthy, and will also be running a meet and greet during his two-day appearances. So if you’re a fan of this boxing great, make sure you head to Dubai Festival City for the event on November 17 and 18.
