Professional British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua has taken to social media to advise youths to shun a life of crime because it ends up catching up with them in the future.
The professional boxer shared a video on snapchat to explain how his past criminal record keeps coming back to haunt him now even though he has turned his life around.
According to AJ, every time he goes to the USA, he is pulled over and questioned because of his criminal record.
“A message to the youth, when I was younger…. used to get in trouble. I’m telling you, it catches up with you. You can’t run away from your past. Every time I step into the USA they pull me into the US customs and border protection.
Luckily, certain things with my criminal record aren’t too severe and they don’t stop me from actually entering. But every time I enter the USA, they pull me over for questioning and it’s tedious and time-consuming.”
“My cousin told me this, there is no light at the end of the tunnel for a criminal & if there is ….. It is actually blue and white” he added.
