Saturday, May 30, 2020 – ReigningWorld heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has opened up on his challenges in finding true love and revealed that he’s yet to find someone to call his girlfriend.
The British-Nigerian boxer said he’s finding it hard to balance his profession together with his personal life.
Speaking during an interview with The Sun, Joshua, who is a father to a 4-year old son said:
“I think you can date and still be a successful sportsman but it’s hard to find a balance and I would have to compromise — which I’ve not felt able to do.
“My dad never gave me advice about much. But in terms of relationships what I have learnt and what I tell my son is, it would be nice to find a high school sweetheart and to grow together because as you get older you get set in your ways.
“For me to have a relationship now means I would have to compromise and change my ways and I don’t know how easy that would be for me to do.
“So I do date but I don’t get to the stage where I actually put anyone into that position.
“I don’t have a girlfriend and I haven’t had one for a while.
“But as I get older I do think it would be nice to have someone, someone to grow with as well — but I honestly haven’t found anyone.”
He went on to say that he hopes to find a lady who will have to understand what it’s like to be famous.
“Maybe I need to get off the estate and start going to celebrity parties — maybe do something different.
“I hope I will — and probably meeting someone else who understands fame would make sense.
“I would hope so. But it needs to be someone down to earth, family-orientated – someone who can call my mum their second mum.
“It takes time to grow that and, as I said, now I am older I am stuck in my ways. As I get older it would be nice to bring someone into my world but it’s dependent on who and I just haven’t found someone yet.”
“Maybe we can go on a hunt. We have all the time now.”
