Despite earning an estimated £15million for defeating Wladimir Klitschko in a heavyweight championship bout on Saturday, April 29, Anthony Joshua has moved back with his mum at a former council flat in North London.

Joshua had been staying in a rented mansion in North London before and after the huge fight at Wembley.

He was however pictured arriving his mum’s house on Thursday, May 11.

The 27-year-old bought the house for his mum, Yeta for £174,000 in 2013 and still stays there with her and his son.

Joshua and his mum are extremely close, often crediting his success to her.

Joshua’s mum is from Sagamu, Nigeria and only came to England when she married the boxer's Irish-Nigerian father Jonathan. They are now separated.

 “We're very close, we always have been from day one, he's my only son,” Joshua’s mum told Daily Mail in April.

We live together and he's always looking out for me. I still can't watch his fights, I get really nervous and I do worry about him.
