British boxer Anthony Joshua is well-known for his exploits inside a boxing bout. However, very little is known about his life outside boxing. Joshua does not seem to be among those who like to live with a partner. He had once told that he doesn’t find much time for girlfriends. He had a son with Nicole Osborne but they are not together currently.
“If people can ride with me for the next 10 to 12 years I would really appreciate it, but if they can’t foresee the future I’d rather they jump off the boat because I can’t stop for no one right now,” he told the Evening Standard in 2017.
“I was speaking to my coach, who worked with Carl Froch, who had a 12-year career. One day it does finish and now he has all the time in the world to think about business, family.
“Not everyone likes the decisions I make but I’ve got to make my own decisions. Decisions I make impact others. And my time training means there is not much time for girlfriends either.”
By that time, Joshua already had a son. It was only a year earlier that he was in a relationship with Nicole Osborne who is the mother of his son. The couple gave birth to their son in October 2015 and broke up later.

Who is Nicole Osborne- the mother of Anthony Joshua’s son?
Nicole Osbourne is a yoga instructor and the mother of Joshua’s child. She can be seen in pole-dancing videos on YouTube.
Her relationship with Joshua started after they met at Watford and parted ways a few years after they had their child together. They welcomed their child, Joseph Bayley Temiloluwa Prince Joshua, in October 2016. But it was not until the next year that the news reached everyone.
After his title-winning victory over Charles Martin in 2016, it was revealed that Joshua was a dad.
It was in the same year that Joshua revealed that he was no longer in a relationship with Osborne.
Currently a heavyweight Champion, Joshua is to defend his title against Kubrat Pulev. However, the fight is in jeopardy amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
