Anthony Joshua net worth: How much AJ is worth ahead of Andy Ruiz Jr rematch

Anthony Joshua is one of the world’s biggest sporting stars – and gets a pay-packet to reflect that.

The heavyweight star remains one of the most lucrative names in sport despite his shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in New York City last June.

The 29-year-old Olympic champion enjoyed a superb pro career before losing his belts to Ruiz Jr and has enjoyed several hefty paydays to boot.

His all-important rematch with the Mexican will earn him another huge cheque and more blockbuster bouts will be in the pipeline if he wins in Saudi Arabia on December 7.


Anthony Joshua net worth

AJ is believed to have a net worth of around £60million, putting him among the top earners ever in the sport.

He has pocketed more than £10m from each of his last five fights, which have been stadium sell-outs at Wembley and the Principality Stadium as well as June’s Madison Square Garden showdown.

Despite defeat, the Ruiz Jr clash saw Joshua bag his biggest purse to date with rumours he took home £20m.

A mega-bout against Deontay Wilder in the future could see him earn over £45m while an all-British clash with Tyson Fury would also secure a huge payday.

Joshua also has over a dozen lucrative sponsorship deals, including contracts with Under Armour, Jaguar, Beats, StubHub, Hugo Boss and Lucozade Sport which all bring in the cash.
