The WBA, IBF and IBO Boxing World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in an interview with Channel 4 News said,he is interested in politics following in the footsteps of Manny Pacquiao and Vitali Klitschko who are now political leaders in their respective countries.
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.
He told the news channel,” I do have a voice but remember I sacrificed education to follow a sporting career.
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.
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.
