“I hope I will — and probably meeting someone else who understands fame would make sense. I would hope so. But it needs to be someone down to earth, family-orientated – someone who can call my mum their second mum.

“It takes time to grow that and, as I said, now I am older I am stuck in my ways. As I get older it would be nice to bring someone into my world but it’s dependent on who and I just haven’t found someone yet.

“Maybe we can go on a hunt. We have all the time now.”

The Brit has dominated the boxing ring, holding four heavyweight titles

AJ has a four-year-old son, JJ, who he has been spending time with during the coronavirus lockdown in his Watford home.

And the Brit has suggested why he has not been able to find a partner to make a family with.

“I think you can date and still be a successful sportsman but it’s hard to find a balance and I would have to compromise — which I’ve not felt able to do,” AJ added.

But the boxer said it is 'hard to find a balance' and has not been able to 'compromise'

“My dad never gave me advice about much. But in terms of relationships what I have learnt and what I tell my son is, it would be nice to find a high school sweetheart and to grow together because as you get older you get set in your ways.

“For me to have a relationship now means I would have to compromise and change my ways and I don’t know how easy that would be for me to do.

“So I do date but I don’t get to the stage where I actually put anyone into that position.

“I don’t have a girlfriend and I haven’t had one for a while. But as I get older I do think it would be nice to have someone, someone to grow with as well — but I honestly haven’t found anyone.”

AJ has been linked with an all-British heavyweight fight against Tyson Fury – and the Gyspy King has taunted his rival.
