- British-Nigerian heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is N1billion richer, between £18million and £20million, after he beat New Zealander Joseph Parker in the unification fight in Cardiff on Saturday.
This new paycheck will take Joshua’s gross earnings from three fights to £50 million.
Last night, Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker put their undefeated records on the line in a world heavyweight unification bout in Cardiff.
Joshua defended his WBA and IBF belts while Parker put his WBO title on the line in front of what was a capacity crowd at the Principality Stadium.
Some 78,000 fans were at the Principality Stadium for Joshua’s third consecutive stadium fight.
Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua headed into the contest as undefeated world champions.
It has been revealed that Joshua is expected to earn close to £20m from tonight’s bout.
Joseph Parker, on the other hand, is guaranteed £13m from the bout – significantly more than Joshua’s previous opponent, Carlos Takam, who pocketed an estimated £1 million from his defeat to Anthony Joshua last October.
