Fans slammed Anthony Joshua for ‘sexist’ comments about women

Nigerian-born British boxer, Anthony Joshua, is facing a furious backlash after stating that he’ll be raising his son to be a “man’s man,” while women should grow up “respectful” as they will one day be a wife.
The heavyweight world champion made the comments in an interview with GQ in 2017, which has now resurfaced online.

Watford-born father-of-one Joshua, 28, told the magazine he’s stricter with his niece than his son JJ, because she needs to learn “family morals.”

“My view is, you have to be a good woman, respectful; one day you will be someone’s wife. You have to learn family morals… what it is to be a good woman.”

Of his son, he declared: “He’s going to be a man’s man. He’ll want to spread his wings, be a Jack-the-lad, build his character.”

His comments provoked a furious backlash on Twitter, with commentators branding his remarks “sexist,” while one bemoaned the fact that he’d used his platform and influence to say he’d raise a girl to be “someone’s wife.”

Joshua shocked fans by revealing he had a secret child in April 2016, when his son was six-months old.

He had gone to great lengths to keep the news of his son’s birth secret, even buying a £500,000 flat in Finchley, north London, for his on/off girlfriend Nicole who he went to school with.

Meanwhile, the athlete moved back into his mother Yeta Odusanya’s council flat in North London, despite earning £15m from his career-changing fight against Wladimir Klitschko last April.

The 2012 Olympic gold-medallist is set to defends his IBF, IBO and WBA belts against Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium on March 31.
