Celebrated Nigerian-British boxer, Anthony Joshua, has been spotted moving back into his mother’s flat after his Klitschko victory.
Anthony Joshua was seen moving into his mother’s apartment
World famous boxer, Anthony Joshua has moved back into his mum’s two-bedroom ex-council flat despite earning a staggering £15m by beating Wladimir Klitschko.
The Sun UK reports, the world heavyweight champion, 27, had been staying in a plush villa in St John’s Wood, north-west London, before his Wembley mega-fight.
But he has now gone back to his roots by heading back to his 51-year-old mum Yeta Odusanya’s home in North London.
The British star, from Watford, is set to become boxing’s first billionaire with a tide of super-fights lined up over the next few years.
Joshua, who is 6ft 6inch and 17-stone, came out on top last month in one of the best fights in recent British boxing history.

He knocked down Klitschko in the fifth, before being floored himself in the sixth.
The WBA, IBF and IBO champ then stopped the Ukrainian legend in the eleventh to send 90,000 fans into raptures.
The dad-of-one bought his care worker mum the flat for £174,000 after turning professional in 2013.
He was snapped outside the house yesterday afternoon, moving his stuff back in.
Yeta does not come to watch the biggest star in Britain in his fights as she gets too nervous at ringside.
He said after the bout: “We spoke on Facetime and she said she was proud of me.”
Joshua is very close to his mother
And he revealed he was going to go back to “normal living” by having a lie-in and having a catch-up with family in the post-fight press conference.
He added: “I’m a good man, I’m a family man, and I love life.
“How do I plan to celebrate? Wake up midday for once. Wake up midday and then catch up with my family.
“Normally I take a holiday, but I think this time what I’m going to do is just pop round to some of my family’s house and catch up.
“Because we spend quarter of the year training, and then normally you go on holiday and then straight back into training camp.
“I don’t want to do that, I want to catch up with family. And that’s it. Go back to normal living.”
Joshua’s life is a stark contrast the boxing hero Floyd Mayweather who flaunts his money-spinning lifestyle with a fleet of luxury cars.
