Anthony Joshua insists he has no interest in entering the dating scene anytime soon because he is “married to boxing”.
The unified world heavyweight champion has dedicated his life and soul to boxing, first taking up the sport as a latecomer back in 2007.
In the 13 years that have followed, he has climbed both the amateur and professional ranks to eventually become a world champion, while selling out arenas across the UK, America and even Saudi Arabia.
The Watford man has a four-year-old son, Joseph Bayley Temiloluwa Prince Joshua, yet he is no longer in a relationship with mother Nicole Osbourne.
And AJ has revealed he isn’t interested in putting himself back on the market anytime soon, although his packed schedule plays no part in that decision.
“The honest answer is I don’t really date,” Joshua told Peperami TV.
“My last date was in the boxing gym… with boxing, I am married to boxing really.
“I don’t really do dates, I am not really interested in it. I am much more in to just being in relaxed situations and developing friendships.
“I don’t think my schedule plays any part in really I just don’t put pressure on situations. In terms of kids I guess it is down to the individual circumstances.”
He added: “Like I said I am not a big fan of the date situation but if I was on a date I would find a good local restaurant.
“For me no food is off limits, I would just like who I am with to enjoy themselves and eat exactly what they want to. I am definitely not a food snob.”
Anthony Joshua has been challenged by Peperami Chicken Bites to find love at first bite, taking part in a unique dating experiment that matches the superstar with singletons, based on food preference alone.
