Anthony Joshua opens up on his struggles with dating, life as a dad during lockdown and fighting Tyson Fury In a world exclusive interview, the 30-year-old fighter also discusses his determination to knock out boxing rival Tyson Fury, his flirtatious quip to The Queen and how sport can help reunite Britain after the Covid-19 crisis. However, despite all of his accolades, Anthony admits there is one prize which remains as elusive as ever – finding love. AJ 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. 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.” Any future girlfriend would have to understand what it’s like to be famous, he believes. ‘I NEED TO GO TO CELEBRITY PARTIES’ 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.
