Anthony Joshua will be coming toe-to-toe with Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday night. It will be one of AJ’s toughest challenges yet, with the Ukrainian boxer undefeated in his previous 18 fights. But a win for Joshua would – hopefully – open the door to a heavyweight unification fight against Tyson Fury.
Joshua quickly rose to fame for landing huge, quickfire knockouts that entertained his fans.
He subsequently won three heavyweight title belts, and has only lost one of his previous 25 fights.
Despite AJ’s rise throughout the boxing arena, he’s recently revealed that he’s currently single.
He’s struggled to find a work/life balance to maintain a relationship, he said.
Having a girlfriend would cause him to change his current routine, and he doesn’t think that would be easy.
While AJ’s been dating, he’s yet to find someone to call a girlfriend.
“I think you can date and still be a successful sportsman, but it’s hard to find a balance and I would have to compromise — which I’ve not felt able to do,” he told The Sun last year.
“In terms of relationships, what I have learnt and what I tell my son is, it would be nice to find a high school sweetheart and to grow together because as you get older you get set in your ways.
“For me to have a relationship now means I would have to compromise and change my ways and I don’t know how easy that would be for me to do. So I do date but I don’t get to the stage where I actually put anyone into that position.”

Who has Joshua previously been rumoured to date?
AJ and Cara Delevigne were reportedly seeing each other back in 2014.
The pair shared a cute hug at an NBA basketball match in London, between the Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks.
A source later reportedly told The Sun: “Cara and Anthony hit it off at the game. They chatted and she asked for a picture.
“They swapped numbers and have had a few texts since. Although with Cara travelling the world and Anthony training hard for his upcoming fight, there’s been no time to meet.”
But, a romantic relationship failed to develop, it’s believed.
It was also claimed that Joshua and Rita Ora were looking very close at an awards night in 2014.
While AJ later revealed he was “well and truly single”, Rita later announced Joshua was among a “dream list” of stars she’d like to date.
During The Masked Singer, judge Rita joked that she hoped the secret celeb dressing up as Chameleon would date her afterwards.
“So maybe you are Anthony Joshua?” she said. “I’d love that. That would be fantastic.”
Back in 2016, Joshua and model Bella Hadid were snapped together at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
Both of their fans immediately shipped the couple after seeing them next to each other.
The rumour mill continued to escalate after they started interacting with each of social media.
However a relationship failed to materialise, and Hadid went on to have an on-again-off-again relationship with the Weeknd, before dating her current boyfriend, art director Marc Kalman.
