Anthony Joshua is set to brush off competitors as he bids to invest in a huge property located in one of the most exclusive streets of London.
According to reports, the property is worth £25 million. Joshua’s purse in his defeat of America’s Jermaine Franklin is £20 million.
That has prompted the 33-year old to make good investment of his fortune having become one of the most recognisable stars in British sports.
The property he wants to buy is located at 73 Bond Street. He has reportedly beaten a number of rival bidders to the exclusive address.
According to Manchester Evening News, Joshua has built an impressive net worth of a reported £170m for a highly impressive career which has seen him twice become a world champion, most notably selling out Wembley Stadium in 2017.
This is in addition to a number of lucrative commercial partnerships forged by the former WBA, WBO and IBF champion, with broadcast partnerships with DAZN and Sky Sports in addition to deals with brands such as Lynx, Lucozade and Under Armour.
Also reported by the Sun in the UK, a source close to Joshua is quoted as saying: “He has always had his eye on the bigger picture when it comes to business and wealth.” They added.
“He eclipses most other stars when it comes to how to handle great wealth.”
With the star still able to draw in £20 million purses for non-world title contests, the Watford born fighter still has plenty of earning potential ahead of a prospective fight against Dillian Whyte this summer.
This could precede a fight against Tyson Fury in the future, with that fight having the potential to be the biggest ever in British boxing history.
