What is Anthony Joshua's net worth? How much has he earned through his boxing career?
| Last updated
Anthony Joshua takes on Jermaine Franklin at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday.
The Briton is looking to return to winning ways after suffering two straight defeats to unified champion Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua was outpointed by Usyk in September 2021 and 2022, losing the heavyweight titles in the first of the two fights, and failing to regain the belts in the second.
The 33-year-old is now taking his first step towards the summit of heavyweight boxing, by facing American 29-year-old Franklin, who lost in November to Dillian Whyte.
And according to Sports Lens, Joshua is set for another major payday this weekend. He is allegedly on course to earn roughly £10million for the bout, proving he remains one of the biggest attractions in boxing.
Meanwhile, Franklin is set to receive approximately £800,000 for Saturday’s main event, a figure which could rise to over £1million when factoring in sponsorship deals and the US star’s potential victory.
‘AJ’ has long been the poster boy of British boxing, but how much has he made across his star-studded career?
How much has Anthony Joshua earned through boxing?
Since his professional debut in 2013, Joshua has gone on to become a heavyweight world champion twice and a household name in the division.
Indeed, while Forbes reported that Joshua's net worth was £38.1million, the Daily Star claimed earlier this year that Joshua has amassed a net worth of around £120million.
One of Joshua’s biggest paydays came in 2017 when he defeated boxing great Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley. The Englishman reportedly picked up a whopping £15million as he knocked out the Ukrainian in the 11th round (Mail Online).
In the following fight, The Telegraph claim Joshua took a slight pay decrease, though still earned £11million as he beat Carlos Takam via a tenth-round technical knockout.
The biggest payday of Joshua’s career came in his 2019 rematch with Andy Ruiz, after Joshua had lost the first encounter via a seventh-round TKO.
The rematch, which was dubbed 'The Clash on the Dunes', saw the Watford-born boxer earn £66million and win via decision in Saudi Arabia, according to the Mail Online.
In the first of his two bouts with Usyk, the same publication claimed Joshua earned £15million, while he received a minimum of £33.2million for the rematch.
In total, The Telegraph reported that Joshua has earned roughly £200million throughout his career so far.
