Popular British boxer, Anthony Joshua, has revealed why he still lives with his mother, Yeta Odusanya, at the age of 34, News About Nigeria reports.
The two-time former unified world heavyweight champion, who disclosed that his future partner would struggle to convince him to move out of his mum’s house, explained that family is everything.
Joshua said this in a discussion with Louis Theroux when he discussed his relationship with his family.
He warned future girlfriends that they would need to compete with his mum because he still lives with her.
He further stated that he lives with his mum because family is the most important thing, and he cannot afford to let his mum live on her own because of a girl.
He said, “I still live with my mum. In our culture, we grew up in our own family home, we support our parents. Why am I going to move out and leave my mum by herself, for some girl? Family is the most important thing. When a girl gets with me, she ain’t just marrying me, she’s marrying my family.”
The boxing star further stated that he loves his privacy, which is why his relationship life is not a public thing.
He also noted that he cannot live up to the expectations people have of him, and that’s why he keeps things about his life private.
Joshua further explained that, in order to meet the expectations of people, many stars end up putting so much pressure on themselves.
