Heavyweight Boxing champion Anthony Joshua has revealed that he does not have girlfriend and it is proving difficult to get someone to call his own.

In a recent interview with The Sun, the Nigerian-born British punching machine touched on life in lockdown with his family including becoming “super dad” to his four-year-old son, JJ, and how it has been difficult for him to balance his profession alongside his personal life.

“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,” AJ said.

He also added, “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.”


The British Nigerian boxer also mentioned that he remains hopeful of finding a woman who would have to understand what it’s like to be famous,

Joshua explains:

“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.”

Joshua also said he has become super-dad while in lockdown with his four-year-old son, JJ.
