World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua says his son will be hardworking, and always ready to make sacrifices like him.
Joshua said although he would like his child to follow in his footsteps as a boxer, he would “want him using his head first”.
“My first born will grow up to be like me, hard-working and understand sacrifice because he’s the heir to the throne,” he told Skysports.
“I’ll have to nurture him to be tough, wise and make critical decisions.
“I had to start from the middle using my fists, whilst some people have to start using their feet playing football.
“I’m happy for him to fight, I just want him using his head first.”
Reflecting on his famous victory over Wladimir Klitschko, the boxer said he could have “done much better”.
The unbeaten boxer also said his biggest challenge will be his recovery rate, when and if he loses a fight.
“When I watch it back, if I knew what I know now, I would have done much better,” said Joshua.
“I still got the win, but I could have done it much easier.
“There will be a time when I get beaten, and I’ll have to show how I bounce back.”
Anthony Joshua will fight Kubrat Pulev to reunify the heavyweight category on October 28 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, UK.
