IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) would entertain the idea of following in the footsteps of boxers like Manny Pacquiao and Vitali Klitschko - by entering the world of politics.
Klitschko, a former WBC heavyweight champion, currently serves as Mayor of Kiev and head of the Kiev City State Administration. Pacquiao, an eight division world champion who is still an active fighter, won a senatorial seat in the Philippines in 2016.
Several other boxers have either entered politics or plan to do so in the future.
Joshua, like Pacquiao, admits that he abandoned his schooling in order to pursue a career as a boxer. He achieved the highest honor as an amateur after winning an Olympic gold medal at the London games in 2012.
As a professional, Joshua has become one of the most popular and well-paid athletes in the entire country - drawing 90,000 to last April's fight with Wladimir Klitschko and 78,000 to October's fight with Carlos Takam.
On March 31, he will attempt to become a four belt champion when he faces WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
When his boxing days are over, Joshua does have political aspirations.
“I have an interest and I have learnt a lot through boxing in terms of like world matters and what matters to me and what matters to the minority because that’s where I come from," Joshua told Channel 4.
“I do have a voice but remember I sacrificed education to follow a sporting career. So what I say isn’t always going to be facts and my point of view isn’t always going to be from an educational stand point but it will be from a reality – a realistic stand point.
“Because I didn’t go to school I didn’t educate myself, I haven’t been in a classroom, and I’ve been out on the streets with people every day since I was young. So I do have an interest but I’m not saying I can run the country but I do think that I could have a say.
“I could have an input and I do think young kids coming up in this country should have a more of a say of what’s going on. I think that the county’s moving at such a rapid pace that some people that are older have been in power do need young creative minds to kind of influence what is happening in the world and world matters – I do believe that.”
