Conquering the world of boxing has not translated to conquering the “matters of the heart” as British boxer, who is the best boxer in the UK, at the moment, reveals: “I don’t have a girlfriend”.
Nigerian-born British boxer, Anthony Joshua, opened up on his challenges in finding a girlfriend, stating that it might not be easy to strike a balance with a committed relationship and his sport.
Anthony Joshua, whose net worth is well over $70m, spoke to The Sun about life on lockdown especially his personal life. Revealing the difficulty of balancing his game and a relationship, he says:
“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,” he continues, “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.
“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.”
