Anthony Joshua next fight: net worth in 2024, career earnings, endorsements, and Bio


    Despite some recent setbacks, Anthony Joshua remains one of the biggest brands in the boxing world out there. After a successful amateur career where he won gold representing Great Britain in the 2012 Olympics, the Watford-born heavy puncher transitioned into pro ranks in 2013 and started making waves in the boxing circle immediately. In just four years, Joshua nicknamed ‘AJ’ won his first major title when he defeated his American counterpart, Charles Martin to win the IBF world heavyweight belt in front of a sold-out crowd in O2 Arena, Greenwich. Later, he went on to win the WBA and WBO crowns but lost the momentum somewhat with a surprise defeat coming in the hands of Andy Ruiz.

    AJ did avenge his loss but hadn’t looked the same since then as he struggled to make a mark against a more accomplished fighter in Oleksandr Usyk. The Ukrainian handed him two back-to-back losses, snatching all the laurels from the Englishman. Now rejuvenated as ever, AJ is determined to crawl his way to the top, and for that, he has made some significant changes in his corner.

    Ever since emerging on the scene, Joshua has been able to pull a huge crowd, earning him massive payouts fight after fight. For his 29 in-ring appearances, the Watford native has garnered an estimated £200m from boxing.

    In 2017, the Brit dethroned Wladimir Klitschko in front of the packed Wembley stadium and walked away with over £10 million in his bags along with WBO and WBA titles. In 2018, the then-undefeated Kiwi, Joseph Parker took AJ to the distance for the first time in his career, but it was the Brit who took the honours in the end, winning a hard-fought unanimous decision. AJ reportedly pocketed a total of £18 million from this bout.

    Following that, it was another home showing which meant another massive payday; this time coming against the Russian, Alexander Povetkin. AJ dominated Povetkin and sent him crashing to the canvas in the seventh round. The fight earned him more than £20 million.

    In 2019, Joshua took a gamble as he fought outside the UK for the first time in his career. The gamble didn’t pay off as he suffered a shocking loss against the underdog, Andy Ruiz. AJ immediately initiated a rematch clause seeking revenge that would see him regain his lost belts. The rematch was staged in the deserts of Saudi with AJ stalking a stupendous £60 million.

    Subsequently, AJ was pulled down with a couple of defeats, both coming against a similar foe, Oleksandr Usyk. However, the former Olympic Gold Medal boxer pocketed nearly £50m from his two title bouts but it came at the cost of championship belts. These hammerings sent AJ in a hurl of mental vows which he eventually overcame.

    Since his return, the Brit has enjoyed a three-fight winning streak, earning £10m-a-piece for his successive victories over Jermaine Franklin, Robert Helenius and Otto Wallin.

    Anthony Joshua – Net Worth in 2024:

    According to Celebrity Net Worth, the two-time unified world champion has a net worth of more than $80 million, with a major share of it coming from his professional boxing fights which are complemented by mega-money sponsorship deals.

    Some of his endorsement deals include Under Armour, Jaguar Land Rover, Beats Electronics, Sky Sports, Audemars Piguet, DAZN, Electronic Arts, and Hugo Boss.

    Initially signed to Sky Sports and Showtime, Joshua left the deal midway and signed a lucrative contract with Dazn and matchroom boxing in 2022 which will see him banking more than £100 million in exchange for two fights every 12 months until he retires.

    Unlike other Gen-Z boxing stalwarts, AJ invests his hard-earned money wisely. The 34-year-old has numerous real state holdings under his belt; commercial buildings at 73 New Bond Street and 12-16 Derring Street in central London are regarded as his highest splashings to date.

    Anthony Joshua –  Social Media:

    AJ has a massive following on his social media. On Instagram, Joshua has 16 million followers. His Facebook profile has 7.3 million followers. And he currently has 3.8 million followers on X formerly known as Twitter.

     Anthony Joshua – Next fight:

    AJ is currently riding a three-win streak and will look to make it four when he faces the predator, Francis Ngannou in Kingdom Arena, Riyadh later this year. AJ knows what Ngannou brings to the table and is fully focused on the task ahead.

    Ngannou put on a great show when he made his pro-boxing debut against the Gypsy King, Tyson Fury in October 2023. The bout went to the wire with the Predator taking the fight to Fury and downing him fourth round. But it wasn’t meant to be Ngannou’s day as he lost the battle via split decision. AJ is aware of Ngannou’s threat and is working hard in the gym to pull this one off. With a win over Ngannou, AJ is eyeing another title shot at the end of this year.
