British boxer Anthony Joshua is well-known for his exploits inside a boxing bout. However, very little is known about his life outside boxing. Joshua does not seem to be among those who like to live with a partner. He had once told that he doesn’t find much time for girlfriends. He had a son with Nicole Osborne but they are not together currently.
“If people can ride with me for the next 10 to 12 years I would really appreciate it, but if they can’t foresee the future I’d rather they jump off the boat because I can’t stop for no one right now,” he told the Evening Standard in 2017.
“I was speaking to my coach, who worked with Carl Froch, who had a 12-year career. One day it does finish and now he has all the time in the world to think about business, family.
“Not everyone likes the decisions I make but I’ve got to make my own decisions. Decisions I make impact others. And my time training means there is not much time for girlfriends either.”
By that time, Joshua already had a son. It was only a year earlier that he was in a relationship with Nicole Osborne who is the mother of his son. The couple gave birth to their son in October 2015 and broke up later.

Who is Nicole Osborne- the mother of Anthony Joshua’s son?
Nicole Osbourne is a yoga instructor and the mother of Joshua’s child. She can be seen in pole-dancing videos on YouTube.
Her relationship with Joshua started after they met at Watford and parted ways a few years after they had their child together. They welcomed their child, Joseph Bayley Temiloluwa Prince Joshua, in October 2016. But it was not until the next year that the news reached everyone.
It was in the same year that Joshua revealed that he was no longer in a relationship with Osborne.
Currently a heavyweight Champion, Joshua is to defend his title against Kubrat Pulev. However, the fight is in jeopardy amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
‘Didn’t Have a Single Weakness’ – Stewart Cink Details His Experience Playing Against ‘Peak’ Tiger Woods
We often remember Stewart Cink for his epic playoff against Tiger Woods at WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in 2006. But he has few other achievements as well. However, this time Stewart has made it to the Tour Championship for the first time since 2009. He finished T38 at the BMW Championship and remained 23rd in the FedExCup rankings to qualify for the Tour Championship.
Meanwhile, his performance this season in the playoffs hasn’t been up to the mark. But still, he has made it to the Tour Championship, thanks to his two victories earlier this season. First at the Safeway Open and then at the RBC Heritage.
“How do you compete against that?” Stewart Cink on competing against peak Tiger Woods
Recently, Stewart Cink gave an interview to the PGA Tour, where they asked him about competing against peak Tiger Woods, and this is what he said: “He personified what you imagined as perfect golf. He had the length, he had the accuracy, he had the control, he had the short game and the putting, and he had on top of that the mental strength, he didn’t have a single weakness.”
“I would imagine it probably felt like what NBA players feel when they play against a guy like Giannis, who is tall, he can handle the ball, he’s quick, he’s got good instincts, he can rebound, and he’s very physical. It’s probably about like that.”
“How do you compete against that?” Cink continued. “I played with Tiger at least half a dozen times on Sunday when he finished first. Just to see him at his best was a treat. It was demoralizing, and it was inspiring kind of all at once.”
And whatever Stewart Cink said is true. Tiger Woods was unmatchable with his game right from 1997 to 2010. And the level of dominance Tiger Woods had during those thirteen years is unfathomable. It seemed like whenever he steps on the course for an event, there is no one else other than Tiger who is going for the win.

Stewart Cink, who was in his prime from 2000 to 2010, sadly didn’t get the recognition and opportunities as his best years overlapped with Tiger’s prime. However, there was a resurgence in Stewart Cink in this season at the RBC Heritage. He had a five-shot lead going into the final day and had the young sensation, Collin Morikawa, chasing him.
However, it turned out to be a mismatch as Cink carded a bogey-free 70 and won the event, while Morikawa fell back and finished T7 after carding 72.
Meanwhile, Stewart Cink will start the 2021 Tour Championship with a score of -1 and is nine strokes behind the leader. However, this top 30 finish has given him entry into the WGC-HSBC Champions, PGA Championship, U.S. Open, Genesis Scottish Open, The Open Championship, and Masters Tournament.
