AJ then joked about how Ruben Loftus-Cheek pre-empted Woods after he called Woods his dream crush in a recent talkSPORT interview. After Joshua asked “Have you been taken?” and both confirmed they weren’t in a relationship, the host later admitted she was “too focused on work to concentrate” bigger than any of Franklin’s slaps.
The boxer also remains aloof about relationships, adding, “In boxing, I never want to commit because I don’t want to work out, I’m busy fighting my wife or something, and my mind isn’t in the game. In a 2020 speech, Joshua admitted he hadn’t had a girlfriend “for a while” and said it would be nice “to have one,” but blamed work-life balance on difficulties.
He told The Sun: “I think you can date and still be a successful athlete but it’s hard to find the balance and I have to compromise – I don’t think I can do it. “I don’t have a girlfriend and have been for a while. Time is running out. But as I get older, I think it would be nice to have someone, someone to grow with – but to be honest, I haven’t found anyone yet.
With his love life on hold, Joshua made his boxing intentions clear by calling out heavyweight champion Tyson Fury after beating Franklin.
“I try to take care of the fans,” he said after the win, “I know who they want. They say Tyson Fury; the ball is in his court. It will be an honor to fight for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship.
“If he’s listening, he knows my promoter; we’ve had conversations before, so let’s move on. We’re not getting any younger.” This isn’t the first time Laura Woods has publicly turned down a potential suitor. Love Island star Charlie Blake politely turned him down after he asked her out on Twitter last year
The fight between Fury and Joshua has long been considered one of the most coveted fights in the heavyweight sport, if not the sport as a whole, but it never materialized. However, after losing to Oleksandr Usyk in 2021 and a rematch in 2022, that prospect looks more unlikely than ever, as the Gypsy Kings may hope to unify the division with just one game.
