As a two-time heavyweight boxing champion, it’s safe to assume that Anthony Joshua isn’t short of a bob or two. Thanks to his prize-winning career he has earned a major reputation for success and was previously awarded an OBE, and the sponsorships and deals that come with it came rolling in. So how much is he really worth?
How much is Anthony Joshua's net worth?
It’s been reported that Joshua has a net worth of a massive $80 million (£67.2 million). In comparison, back in 2020 it was suggested he was earning $47 million (£39.5 million), so the cash just keeps coming.
Joshua is always in demand and has no intention of slowing down either, and has talked about his goals and ambitions to become the most successful there is.
Not content with being a multi-millionaire, he wants to be a billionaire: “When I first started, the aim was to become a multi-millionaire, but now there are ordinary people, grandmas and grandads, who are worth millions just because of property prices. So the new school of thought is that I need to be a billionaire. Being a millionaire is good but you have to set your sights higher."
He's not afraid to splash the cash and once revealed he had bought cars for his cousins and brother for Christmas.
One of his biggest pay days came after beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2017. Winning the WBA and IBO heavyweight titles saw him raking in a massive $17 million (£14.2 million).
Even when he loses, he still wins big when it comes to the cash after earning $25 million (£21 million) for a fight against Andy Ruiz Jr. that didn’t go his way. He turned it into even more money after activating his rematch clause, and following the 2019 fight he won $60 million (£54 million), as well as beating Ruiz.
He likes to give back too though, and during the pandemic Joshua made a major donation to help keep amateur boxing venues alive, with the help of Team GB.
He has an incredible 14.2 million followers on Instagram, and he regularly posts sponsored content and endorsements. Recent videos feature him teaming up with Under Armor, JD Sports, Bulk Nutrition, Lucozade and many more.
He’s previously worked with the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, Beats by Dre and Hugo Boss too. Sharing posts with that many followers is sure to be a lucrative deal for the boxer.
It seems that billionaire status won't be far off soon.
