Anthony Joshua is set to defend his heavyweight titles against WBO challenger Oleksandr Usyk – but how much money are both fighters set to pocket?

It may not be the big bout with Tyson Fury we were all hoping for – thanks to a certain Deontay Wilder – but it’s better than nothing and the pressure is on AJ to do the business against the unbeaten Ukrainian.

A 63,000 capacity crowd will pile through the gates of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday to watch the pair scrap it out while hundreds of thousands are set to tune in from home.

You’ll find information on the Anthony Joshua v Oleksandr Usyk fight purses plus Paddy’s latest odds and undercard details below.

Joshua v Usyk Fight Purses

It’s estimated that AJ has a guaranteed purse worth £10m for putting his heavyweight belts on the line against Usyk. A further £5m is expected to trickle in from pay-per-view earnings. Sure, that’s a life-changing amount of money for the average person in the street but it’s significantly less than the £66m Joshua banked for his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr. He had also agreed a £100m contract with Fury for their hotly-anticipated bout – with a 50/50 split – before Wilder got in the way…

Usyk is also set to significantly swell his bank balance thanks to a guaranteed purse of £3m, with an additional £2m coming from the PPV money.

Joshua has only suffered one defeat in his illustrious career and is the heavy favourite to win his first fight of the calendar year.

Anthony Joshua – 4/11
