There has been arguements and speculations amongst many Nigerians regarding how much Nigerian boxer earned from his heavyweight title victory. To put rumours to rest here is the accurate figure expectedly earned from the fight.
Anthony Joshua pocketed up to £15million following his epic heavyweight victory over Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday evening.
The Brit stopped his 41-year-old opponent in the 11th round at Wembley Stadium in what was one of the best heavyweight title bouts the sport has witnessed in years.
And as well soaking up the glory in the ring, Joshua’s bank balance will also get a huge shot in the arm.
Both fighters were already guaranteed at least £10million from the 50/50 purse split and that figure could push towards £15million on the back of record pay-per-view sales.
