Anthony Joshua Wife, Son and Girlfriends
Anthony’s personal life is something that has come under scrutiny a lot in recent years, not out of judgment but out of curiosity. Being one of the most famous people in the world, as at now, people want to know who he is dating or isn’t dating.
Currently, Anthony is not in a relationship. He has repeatedly stated that he wishes to focus on his career at this moment, saying a relationship will only be a distraction. But this has not stopped people from linking him to several celebrities including Bella Hadid.
However, he does have a child, a son – Joseph Bayley Temiloluwa Prince Joshua, with his ex-girlfriend – Nicole Osborne, a pole dancing teacher, and yoga instructor.
Anthony and Nicole have been on-and-off since their days at school. The boxer bought a flat in Finchley, North London for £500,000 for Nicole and their child to live comfortably.
Anthony Joshua Height, Weight & Body Stats
As one of the foremost athletes in the world, it is expected that Anthony Joshua is in excellent shape; and he is. He currently weighs 113kg and stands tall at 1.98m.
To achieve his near-perfect physique, the sportsman spends a lot of time training and working out. Being in top shape is not only necessary for aesthetic purposes but also for the sake of his profession. When it comes to his fitness, Anthony does a little bit of everything including cardio, heavy bag, weight training, speedbag training, strength and conditioning, running and bike work.
Prior to a fight, the athlete can train up to 30 hours a week to be at his peak. He is able to do all these by maintaining a 4,500cal diet which consists primarily of a lot of protein such as salmon, chicken, and eggs. He consumes these much calories because his workout routine is quite demanding and it burns many calories.
His diet also is also one of the best when it comes to putting on muscles, which he needs to maximize his athletic and professional potential.
Anthony Joshua Net Worth
Anthony Joshua currently has a net worth of £32 million ($45m) and apparently this is only the beginning for him. His career is relatively new and he has already made it into ‘icon’ status. By the time he is done, at retirement, he hopes to become the first billionaire boxer ever. To be honest, with his career trajectory, business dealings, investments and current earnings per match, we have to say – this is all entirely possible. Best of luck to the British powerhouse.
