Anthony Joshua ranks second on UK richest sportsperson list

by Duke Magazine

World unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has been ranked as the second richest sportsperson in the United Kingdom.

In the ranking prepared by The Sunday Times, the Welsh and Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale, was inferred as the richest young sports star.

Meanwhile, Formula 1 driver, Lewis Hamilton, was ranked the richest sportsperson in the United Kingdom with a net worth of £224 million.

Other young stars that grace the list alongside with Joshua are footballers who are aged 30 or below. Among them are Bale, Paul Pogba, Kevin de Bruyne, David de Gea, Raheem Sterling, and N’Golo Kante.

It was gathered that Joshua earned an approximate of £78 million from his two bouts with Andy Ruiz Jr. last year, amassing his net worth to £107 million.

It would be recalled that Joshua reclaimed his titles being stripped off by Andy Ruiz Jr. in December, 2019 from the Mexican boxer. 

The British boxer was born to a Nigerian-Irish father, Robert Joshua, and a Nigerian mother, Yeta Odusanya.

Gareth Bale had in 2016 extended his contract signing to 2022 with the Spanish La liga giant, Real Madrid. that wil earn him £115m over the next six years in salaries and bonuses. He is estimated to have a net worth of £114 million.

Bale joined Real for a then-world -jaw-breaking record fee of over €100m from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013. But the figure was overshadowed by Paul Pogba’s €105m move to Manchester United from Juventus.
