It was rumored that the pair exchanged flirty messages after 'hitting it off.' Some sources have even reported that they swapped number, but due to their busy schedules, their relationship did not hit it off.

After a few months in the same year, Anthony was spotted getting along famously with Rita Ora. It has been reported that they reached to the point of flirting at a party which was hosted by GQ, which is a men's magazine.

Later in 2016, Chantelle Connelly claimed that Anthony asked for her number which gave rise to their romance rumor. The rumors were cleared off when his representative denied the claim.

In the same year, he was also linked with Bella Hadid whom he met at GQ Men of the Year Awards in 2016. Adding to it, he was previously accused of being romantically involved with Faryal Makhdoom by her husband, Amir Khan. However, Anthony denied the claim.

Getting Settled Any Time Sooner?

He made clear that he is much involved with training has does not have time for girlfriends. He even opened up his ideal women, who would be the person who is willing to wait for him throughout his career.

Back in September 2017, Anthony opened up with the Standard expressing,

“My time training means there is not much time for girlfriends. 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.”

Well, he sure seems much occupied with his career and is not looking for anyone to settle down at the current moment.
