Boxer Anthony Joshua has 100 million smackers in the bank after recapturing his world heavyweight titles in Saudi Arabia.

The 30-year-old increased his fortune by £52million after winning his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr – and could yet double it with a £200million mega-fight against Deontay Wilder .

Before Saturday’s win, Watford-born Joshua had made £49million from 23 professional fights after winning Olympic gold at London 2012.

Team Joshua member Mark Seltzer, a boxing manager and cut man with 50 world title bouts to his name, said: “The sky’s the limit for Josh.

"A mega-fight with Wilder could see them attract a purse of £200million.

"It’s the fight the world wants to see. With money from the Middle East and the Far East now in the sport, countless backers will pay."

Following his win, Joshua was joined in the ring by his family and hugged his three-year-old son, Joseph Bayley Temiloluwa Prince Joshua.

The boxer’s parents, Yeta and Robert, along with his sister, Janet, jumped up and down as they hugged the champion.

The fight is said to have attracted more than 25 million viewers worldwide, including Sylvester Stallone who held a party with his celebrity friends in LA.

The WBC heavyweight belt holder said: “People say I have no skills, but my intellect is high enough to know if I’d been in a situation like [Ruiz Jr] and something’s not working, you’ve got to change up my style.

“I’m smart enough to know, cut the f***ing ring off.

“Once you cut the ring off, you put Joshua in a corner and you can have your way with him by hitting him the way you did the first time

“To be in boxing that long and not know how to cut the ring off? If he knew, he didn’t do it, or he didn’t have the intellect. I’m a little upset with him.”

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE is a British professional boxer (Nigerian root). He is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December 2019, and previously between 2016 and June 2019.
