Anthony Joshua has asked his mother, Yeta Odusanya, not to come to Wembley Stadium this weekend, when he fights Wladimir Klitschko.
He has also barred her from watching the bout on TV and she will only be informed about the outcome via a telephone call.
However, his father Robert, will be among the 90,000 at the stadium on Saturday.
“My old man will be there but I don’t really let my mum come to my fights.
“I’ve banned her. It’s not a place where you want to see your kid, I don’t think, at a fight. My dad can watch it, but not my mum.
“I would rather she not be there. One of my cousins will call her after the fight. She enjoys it all, though, and she gets a few freebies,” Joshua said.
Joshua will be putting his IBF world title on the line against the Ukrainian.
