Heads bowed, each had one black-glove encased fist raised in the air in a shock symbol of their protest against racial prejudice in their United States homeland. It was the most significant political gesture in sport after the refusal of the world heavyweight boxing champion, Muhammad Ali, to accept the military draft to fight in Vietnam the year before. It was labelled the Black Power salute. But this was a total misnomer. It was about black equality.
Following the dramatic 11th round stoppage of the 41-year-old Ukrainian legend, a fellow former Olympic super-heavyweight champion, Joshua insisted that his victory did not match the high of winning Olympic gold at London 2012. “Winning the world titles and defeating a boxing legend in Wladimir are special moments, but for me nothing will ever match standing on the podium in London with the gold medal around my neck,” he said.
The fact that they now face each other at Wembley Stadium on April 29 in world heavyweight title fight represents a rare slice of boxing history and adds an extra sprinkle of spice to an already piquant punch-up. For it is indeed rare that those who have acquired the ultimate Olympic glory at either heavyweight or super-heavyweight go on to box a fellow Olympic champion at the same weight for what is still the richest prize in sport. Rare but not quite unique.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
