Famous Nigerian-born British boxer, Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, and his three-year-old son, Joseph, are the cover of the December issue of Gentlemen’s Quarterly Magazine.
In celebration of the magazine’s 30th anniversary, it tries to dissect masculinity, hence a very athletic man being photographed with his young son. Anthony is the first man to be photographed with his son on the cover of British GQ.
The athletic boxer was pictured cuddling his young child as he showed his soft side. In the interview, he talked about what it takes to raise a child and why he doesn’t think his son can become a boxer like him.
“We all have that killer instinct, but we dampen it down in life. That’s what we train for – that killer instinct. It’s what I do for a living. “I had that instinct before I ever boxed, but now I know how to handle it, control it and when to use it. “And that’s why I think maybe JJ won’t be able to box, because when you come from a less violent background, do you have that instinct? JJ has the bloodline but will he be the strongest in the pack? “That’s what people will wonder and I would wonder that too and probably wouldn’t want him to do it.”
earlier it was reported that the boxer’s N93m jeep was stolen ahead of his heavyweight title fight with Povetkin. Anthony Joshua lost his custom-made £200,000 Land Rover ahead of his world heavyweight title clash at Wembley. The vehicle was pinched from the home of a relative of Joshua’s in London as the theft was caught on CCTV.
