World heavy weight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua has opened up on his relationship life. in an interview with Sun he shared that he doesn’t have any girlfriend, agreeing that it would be nice to have one now that he is getting old but still hasn’t found any.
“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, he said
“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 went on to say that he hopes to find a woman who would have to understand what it’s like to be famous,
He 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.
