When it comes to money, Anthony Joshua's early career hasn't always been smooth. He got a job as a bricklayer after purchasing his first set of weights from Argos.
Joshua had an early interest in the sport and began boxing at Finchley Amateur Boxing Club. For his first set of boxing boots, he had to borrow £25 from his cousin. It's incredible to go from this to having a net worth of over £100 million.
When Joshua first gained attention in the boxing world, he rejected down a lucrative offer of £50,000 to become professional. In 2013, he went pro, and a year later, in October 2014, he won his first championship, the WBC International heavyweight title.
He subsequently went on to win the Commonwealth heavyweight championship, which drew even more attention to him. After that, we saw AJ face big names like Wladimir Klitschko, Carlos Takam, and Joseph Parker, to mention a few.
Anthony Joshua has a net worth of £115 million, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
AJ quadrupled his career earnings to over £100 million after defeating Andy Ruiz Jr, putting him among the best earners in boxing history.
Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury, the battle that all boxing fans want to witness, is unlikely to materialise until at least 2022, after heightened anticipation about the match stopped this month with Fury agreeing to a fight with Deontay Wilder in July. Around the same time, Joshua is expected to face Oleksandr Usyk. The Joshua-Fury fight was supposed to take place on August 14 in Saudi Arabia, with both boxers potentially earning £100 million.
