Normally it’s a tweet that sends fans into a frenzy of commenting, liking, and sharing.

But this time, Anthony Joshua has taken to Instagram to post a picture of his early days in his boxing career to show he where he came from to be where he is today.

Standing beside a ring with two other young athletes, a youthful Joshua poses with his fists up.

He uploaded the photo to his Insta page with the caption: “It Was All A Dream #TBT”. 

It must be an amazing feeling to win a triple title fight against an experienced opponent. It must make you feel grateful to be given the shot and to be rewarded for all those long years of training and discipline.

Perhaps, this is why Joshua has uploaded it.

Maybe he is humbled to have been given overwhelming support before, during, and after his bout with Klitschko, and now he wants the social media world to know how much he values his career.

One fan commented on the picture to say: "But now the dream came true.” Another was more simple and direct to say: “#dreamscometrue #champ.”

Joshua staged his career defining fight against Wladimir Klitschko

It’s almost a week now since Anthony Joshua came out of his corner in round 11 and handed Klitschko a tirade of punches that saw him drop to the mat twice and finally become incoherent.

After what was a much longer fight than Joshua would have wanted, one which saw him floored for the first time in his professional career in round six, Joshua did what he needed too and stepped out of the ring as the IBO, IBF, and WBA champion and into the history books.

Wladimir Klitschko played his part too, though, both men battling in an even contest up until round five, when the Brit floored the Ukrainian before Klitschko returned the compliment.

Klitschko even admitted in the post-fight conference: “I did not expect him to get up.”

A rematch is on the cards after it was written into the clause of the contract, but for now, Joshua will be awaiting news as to whether his IBF title defence against Bulgarian Kybrat Pulev is going to be enforced by the IBF
