Anthony Joshua says it again and again. Almost apologetically.

living Joshua fashionably and lavishly in something that can easily be described as a palace, and how he uses loose of its a lot of money. The situation in Sheffield-the apartment is a second.
It is modest surroundings. Not necessarily poor, but modest. As if he has seen or reviewed the Rocky and decided to try it.
he says in a tv clip, he has put up on his YouTube channel, and as you can see here.
In the almost four minute long video guides he viewers through the apartment's rooms and explains humbly, how he lives.
There is a look into the fridge, Anthony throw yourself smiling on a bed and put your hands behind your head, as if he enjoys it. The idea is to let viewers and fans know that here is only focus on one thing: the Training, sparringen, the fight.
