British-Nigerian World heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has said that he would not want his four years old son to go in for boxing.
“I started off as super-dad and then that slowly went out the window and to be honest he’s watching way too much TV now”, the heavyweight boxing champion told The Sun.
“The only thing he wants to do is watch Paw Patrol and Ryan’s World – there’s no way you’d get him watching Joe Wicks.”
“At home he doesn’t really think of me as a famous boxer or anything like that”, the heavyweight champion continues, “I’m not a superstar and he doesn’t think so either. He knows I fight but that’s all.
“I always keep that stuff away from home. I’m not like that at home – and I’m not even like that when I go out, really.”
On why he wouldn’t want his son to be a boxer, Anthony Joshua explained: “No it’s too hard. It’s a dangerous sport. I want my son to be the best man that he can be, but I don’t want him to be compared to me”.
“You’re not going to be a boxing star without going through heaps of pain.
