British Nigerian heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has opened up on his challenges in finding “someone to grow with”.
Speaking in an interview with The Sun, the 30-year-old father of one 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.”
