Anthony Joshua ‘Hasn’t Found A Girlfriend’ Despite Being World Heavyweight Champion



He might but world heavyweight champion of the world but Anthony Joshua is struggling to find love and balance it with his boxing career.

With all the success he’s had as well as the fact he’s in unbelievable shape and comes across as a likeable fella – you might have thought ‘AJ’ would have no problem in the dating department.

After all, you only have to look at the slew of thirsty tweets about him on social media.

But it’s actually far from the truth as the 30-year old has opened up about his difficulties when it comes to the ladies. Joshua hasn’t yet found the one.

He admits being so focused on his ventures inside the ring has made it tough – though he does want someone he can grow with.

Joshua told The Sun: “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.”

Even with all the money and prestige that has come his way, Joshua still lives in the same house and prides himself on being humble.

That being said, he’s aware that he might have to do a bit more mixing with celebrities in the future. He also thinks being with someone who is also famous may be a better fit – though they would have to have their feet firmly on the grand.

“Maybe I need to get off the estate and start going to celebrity parties – maybe do something different,” he added.

“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.”
