WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, is set to take on former unified cruiserweight champion, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, tonight (Saturday) at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London with over 60,000 fans expected to be in attendance.

According to reports, Joshua will earn up to £10 million guaranteed plus share of Pay Per View sales. But, if the fight achieves an estimate of 450,000 PPV buys in the United Kingdom, Joshua could take home £15 million, while Usyk will get around £3 million guaranteed plus PPV sales and could earn around £1-2 million from PPV sales.

However, sources say it is unclear what the split of the PPV percentage will be for the bout, though, it is reported that the total could be 60 percent for Joshua and 40 percent for Usyk.

In AJ’s last contest against Kubrat Pulev in December 2020, he earned around £10 million due to the COVID-19 pandemic where fewer fans were in attendance.

The winner of the fight may face WBC champion, Tyson Fury or American Deontay Wilder.

This contest will be the last fight of Joshua’s multi-million-pound deal with Sky, who have shown all 25 of AJ’s professional fights.
