British/Nigerian World Heavyweight Champion boxing, Anthony Joshua covered British GQ magazine April 2017 issue, and a statement he stated on during the interview is trending over a statement he made about being too hard on his niece more than his son because she will one day become a wife.
Joshua, in the interview, discussed his experience as a father.
He is not strict with his son, Joseph, he said, because he’s a boy who’s going to be a “man’s man.”
His niece, however, he is strict with, he said. Why? Because she has to be “a good woman, respectful,” and will one day become “somebody’s wife.” He said:
I don’t think I’m that strict with Joseph, I don’t know why. But with my niece I’m strict. I think it is because she is older, but also he’s a boy – he’s going to be a man’s man, he’ll want to spread his wings, be a Jack-the-lad, build his character. But I am sure there are things I will be strict about. But with my niece, there is none of that Jack-the-lad nonsense for her! 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.
