Heading into the rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is set to earn £100m from the fight, a fee similar to his multi-million DAZN contract, The PUNCH reports.

Joshua pocketed the bulk of the Sheiks’ mind-boggling £66m site fee to fight Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019 but Usyk will command 50 per cent of the figure this time around.

Despite fan outrage at the £24.95 cost to stream the September bout, around 1.2million fans still went ahead and purchased the fight. A repeat would add another £30m to the prize money pot, totalling somewhere in the region of £130m. Due to a 50/50 split, the Brit will cash in on a minimum £65m payday. Yet this amount does not include ticket sales and sponsorship deals which, according to The Sun, could take the figure towards the £100m mark.All rights reserved.
